I finally got around to buying that extension cord so I can have my phone charging on the table beside the bed, so I'm going to start using the alarm function on it.

This morning, I woke up to Bob-omb Battlefield



Although I might change it to Mr Blue Sky. I'm not even an ELO fan, but that song makes me feel happy.




Do you have a song that helps you jump out of bed, ready to seize the day?

This is mine. Theory being that a dissonant and complex song would wake me enough not to hit snooze. Theory disproven, but this song works better than most.

Not really. Today I woke up with Bob Seger's Accompany Me stuck in my head. I have no clue why since it's been a while since I've heard that song.

When I was about 13, my dad woke my up one morning by banging my door open and shouting "reveille reveille reveille!"
I almost peed the bed.

Not typically, but if I need a cheap adrenaline boost I usually turn to this:

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

I travel a lot for work and always use my phone as my alarm clock at the hotels I stay at. This is what I wake up to every morning on the road...

When I was a kid, I digitised the air raid sample from the beginning of Frankie Goes to Hollywood's Two Tribes 12" single and wrote a computer program to play it as an alarm.



It only got used once..... My parents weren't amused devil

This reminds me that I was once reading a story about nuclear war (If you've heard of AlternateHistory.com, it's from there, you can read it here, I don't think a version has been posted anywhere without all the discussion, unfortunately), and it was about 1am, which is fine until Janice Long on Radio2 decided to play Blockbuster! by The Sweet, which also opens with an air raid siren. I kind of jumped out of my skin.

Anyway, I woke up just now hearing this song in a dream (I didn't have the radio on):

This has been in my head since Thursday, so it was in my head this morning when I woke up. Still happy with it!

Like most people, I find there's nothing quite like the mornings you can teeter home still drunk in the saddle.
