The Animals - House of the Rising Sun
Sonny and Cher "I Got You Babe"
Thank you, Rrog for the Groundhog Day reference! You beat me to it.
"You Left Me Sore" off of Todd Rungren's seminal album "Something/Anything". And while you're there, have a listen to "Sound Of The Studio".
Beatles-Here Comes the Sun.
Sir-Mix-A-Lot-"Baby Got Back"...(I like Big Butts).http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reTx5sqvVJ4
"Just a Little Lovin' " - the Shelby Lynne version
If you've got video with your alarm clock, this wouldn't be too bad:
Susannah Hoffs covering Bad Company's "Feel Like Makin' Love"
Only because I can't seem to get it out of my head lately:
Peter Gabriel - Digging In The Dirt
Sentimental Lady,from Fleetwood Mac,Bare Trees LP
agree w/Tbromgard, Here Comes the Sun my top pic
Brand New Day, Van Morrison
A Beautiful Morning, the Rascals
Everybodys Talkin at Me, Nilsson
I would like to wake to the sound of birds happily singing
in a natural setting. NO music.
I would select Van Morrison Brand New Day as soon as Here Comes the Sun ends. Great tune
I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer. The Doors
I tried waking to music a few times and felt nauseous. Prefer some sort of gentle alarm sound that increases in volume. Music is art, not noise to kick ya alive. I like to wake to relative quiet and find I slept a few hours more than usual .... and .... it is a long weekend!
Phil Collins, Another day in paradise.
James Brown, "Sex Machine". Mostly because they sing "get up, get on up" over and over again
woke up, got outa bed, dragged a comb across my head...
That's so good, it should have mine :-) What the perfect song to wake up to as "A Day In The Life" by the Beatles...excellent!
Yes, but the correct lyrics would be "fell out of bed"...haven't listened to it in a long time.
And there's always Carmina Burana...
"Sunrise" by Norah Jones is one that gets played often in my house in the early hours. Another is "For the Morning" by Alli Rogers. Both really beautiful in different ways, and set a strong and beautiful melody-line to the day.
Martykl, have to agree with you about waking up to anything Hoffs did on video, something about that chick!
In the morning? "Get it while you can"... Janis Joplin
Making Flippy Floppy by Talking Heads.
