I don't really need anything to wake up. My "mental alarm clock" wakes most mornings. But I still set an alarm, just for backup. I can do harder stuff in the morning, but I like slower tunes to ease me into the day.

I used to have Eric Clapton Slowhand on the turntable. The stereo had clock unit with switchable outlets to turn on pieces of the system.

I always thought Detroit Rock City was cool, because you can hear the dishes rattling and it sounds like someone is in the kitchen.

:naughty:

Right now I got Nicolo Paganini 24 Caprice in the CD alarm clock. I work on my Rocksmith just before bed, and when I hear that in the morning, I get confused somtimes and think it is the song I'm working on, and think, "Man, am I screwed. I ain't never gonna play that.". :laugh2:

I hate mornings...no matter what's playing on the clock radio. I feel like doing this every morning.

I tend not to listen to music in the morning--I need a song with a good tempo and a driving beat to wake me up.

Mellow music--even if I like the song--puts me back to sleep.
Songs I don't like annoy me in the morning.
So I wake up to an annoying alarm--because it does wake me up.

Then I listen to the sports radio station--although I listen to music later in the day.

I'm such a light sleeper I don't really need much to get me up. I usually get my self up before the alarm goes off.

I think these would be good to wake up to.

This is my wake up alarm.
I'm a heavy sleeper so need something loud to wake me up.

One song to wake up to forever and ever? We already know what that is - "I got you babe". Just ask Bill Murray.

I was awaken this morning by a gnawing sound. I thought it was my cat chewing on the blinds. After she wouldn't stop, I got up and saw this outside my bedroom window.

I guess it had a rodent (or neighbor's cat) trapped inside the drain pipe. It was tryin' its best to get it out. I ran it off twice, but it kept coming back.
