what’s your wake-me-up song?

Just curious, as I’m thinking of changing mine (on my phone, of course. I have a traditional alarm clock that runs on an AA battery and rings as loud as an injured bear, but I don’t use it any more). Previously it was The Killers’ Mr. Brightside, and currently it is Coldplay’s Viva La Vida.

What’s yours? What would you recommend?



  1. A progressively louder screaming rendition of ‘message’ which ends with the kind of scream that makes the voice vibrate.


  2. Mine is Hennes & Cold – The Second Trip.

    I tell you, it sure does wake me up.

  3. maroon 5’s little of your time. the beginning of the song can really giv you a jolt.


  5. Kings of Leon – ‘Sex on Fire’

  6. Wake Up It’s A Beautiful Morning – The Boo Radleys.

    Best wakeup song evar!

  7. for some reason i’ve always wanted to use “wake me up before you go go” by george michael. fun, upbeat, not too loud, alarm.

  8. Mine is Barry White’s Can’t Get Enough of Your Love – don’t ask why.

    I think you should change to The Apprentice’s Theme Song or anything with money in it. People who wake up early are rarely poor!

  9. Try using Usher’s Yeah!. My friend used it as a wake-up ringtone and literally freaks me out of bed(not in a good way, mind you:P)

  10. Has gotta be Wake Me Up Before You Go Go

  11. Federico Franchi – Cream. this one is very good but it annoys the shit out of me.

    i need to use mellow ringtones or i get VERY IRRITATED

  12. Mine is Jump Around by House of Pain

  13. LOL…. for me anything that is LOUD would wake me up!! haha

  14. Elizabeth says:

    Fall Out Boy – I Don’t Care

    The Killers – Human

  15. Viva la Vida! =)

  16. unchained melody. LOLOLOL

  17. Twist & Shout, the Beatles

  18. yeehou: oO i have that track! my colleague uses it, annoys the shit out of me

    ST: oO the intro is already fast. i like something softer, then it goes faster one. trance/ dance tracks, i cannot take it first thing in the morning heh

    rachel: oO the drums!

    KY: yeah. thank me for that!

    Half: nice intro!

    erna: indeed! I’ve almost forgotten about that song

    FA: what do you actually use then? a proper alarm clock?

    dean: hahehaea hahehhaehhaehae brave of you to admit hahehaeh. re: the apprentice tune. i’ve never liked it. maybe because it’s in association with teh trump

    z: hahha! that’s a bit shocking the system!

    vincent: because of the lyrics? or the tune?

    skyler: wah you are right. i’m checking it out on youtube now, a bit annoying for mornings

    charlene: ahh nice!

    andrew: so which one worked lah?

    elizabeth: heh as much as i love The Killers, i can’t listen to ‘human’ because of the overly horrendous grammar

    rach: oO same!

    eyeris: are you fucking serious ๐Ÿ˜›

    mel & sham: nice one!

  19. last time.. back in highschool.. i had an alarm clock that made random/fluctuated sound that annoyed me till i drag me ass out of bed.. but now a days the body’s in auto mode.. 6-7hr sure wakeup.. and if i do need a alarm.. i schedule a task in PC to random play “rage.pls” me angry mode MP3 playlist (with high volume of cause).. lolx

  20. right now, it’s “fake tales of san francisco” by the arctic monkeys. it used to be a recording of my niece crying. and before that, it was “don’t wait” by dashboard confessional.

    all three definitely managed to jolt me outta bed.

  21. Jump by Van Halen.

  22. I reckon the Chipmunks version of Flo-rida’s LOW will ANNOY you out of bed faster than you can say Alvin shaddafakup

  23. the safety dance by men without hats:-D

  24. wake me up, before you go go… george michael hahahahaha

  25. i think i still like the ear-deafening tone of the old skool alarm clock.

  26. Same as Eiling. Old skool alarm, none of them newfangled things you call MPthrees.

    It wakes me up. Does the job. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  27. i remember once a friend put on a hacken lee’s song to wake me up. a world cup song i think, he literally sings “wake up !!wake up!! wake up!!” in mandarin

  28. Time after Time, the ebtg cover. ๐Ÿ˜› I used to use noisy loud killmenow songs but I find they throw my day off, or at least the mornings. I’m more willing to wake up with jiwang songs haahaha oh terukbetul.

    Oh but the fucking vibrate mode has to be off if not I’ll be damn bloody irritated cos can’t hear fucks over the BZZZZZZHHHHTTT BZZZZHHHHHHTTTTT

  29. hahahaha… like i said… any songs!! put the volume to the max… i’ll be up!! LOL -=D

  30. i use loud songs … or even better loud and annoying songs. hehe. makes you want to wake up immediately and turn it off. currently, im using the sex and the city theme song by the pfeifer broz. orchestra … :p

  31. Deadsy’s Key to Gramercy Park.

    It works!

  32. mine is Mika-Lollipop
    Loud and extremely annoying especially the chorus
    bound to get me up to off it and start getting ready!!

  33. Mine is Human by THE KILLERS
    one of my friend has a hilarious one…NEGARAKU(upbeat version)…that one relli woke me up

  34. My new phone can’t change to use the tone from Music folder. Not actually a new new phone. So, I’m using Crazy Frog now.

  35. currently on my phone alarm is Feist’s Mushaboom. Previously was Here Comes the Sun by Nina Simone,What a Difference a Day Makes by Dinah Washington and the Negaraku on August. My all time favorite is Daring General from Kungfu Hustle soundtrack. Sure wakes me up

  36. mne is “Again” from archive…i hate waking up with “strong” songs…….that`s why i like “again’

  37. I prefer something that actually wakes me up – Smoke on the Water! [or rather I wake up to turn it off before it rings so it doesn’t wake anyone else up. ๐Ÿ˜› Does the job though. ]

  38. As a sidenote, of all the little Coldplay experience I have, they rather put you to sleep than wake you up. ๐Ÿ˜›

  39. I used to have Final Fantasy IX MIDI theme song on the Sony Ericsson T630. But since getting the Nokia 5800, I have set Vienna Teng’s Green Island Serenade.

  40. Mine is a song called ‘Get Happy’ a bright little tune guaranteed to make sure I don’t slit my wrists early in the day. ๐Ÿ™‚
