Mine is Good Morning Culture by Go Go Vanillas

It evokes the feeling of waking up at an American campsite on a glorious day by the lake. I don't like mornings, but this song makes me happy.

If I could choose a song to wake up to it would be "The Spirit of Radio" by Rush

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Tq-UsaRchI

The first verse of the song is:
Begin the day
With a friendly voice
A companion, unobtrusive
Plays that song that's so elusive
And the magic music makes your morning mood

The whole song is a tribute to the local radio station they loved in Toronto.

I don't use a song to wake up.

I use a sound effect from Young Justice as my alarm. It is a device that Robin used that kept playing his laugh over and over again.

SUPER MARIO MAKER LEVELS:

  • SMB Mix-Up! (1AB2-0000-0047-5A7D)
  • Storm the Castle (77BD-0000-00E0-A9C0)

^That's a damn good choice right there.

I'm a big Rush fan too.

This is a great wake up track...always gets me ready to pound some vagina.

That's quite a fun song. Are they an old group?

For some reason it reminds me of that scene in the Golden Child when Eddie Murphy busts into a crackhouse to save a kidnapped kid.

Rush started in the early 70's, and just called it quits a few years ago.

2112, easily their best.  Set aside some time, it’s twenty minutes long.

They have a ton of great songs...depends what you like. They got a lot more poppy in the 80's and 90's but they were still great. To me, their 70's stuff is the pinnacle period for them. Just classic progressive rock.

  • Fly By Night, 1975
  • Caress of Steel, 1975
  • 2112, 1976
  • A Farewell To Kings, 1977
  • Hemispheres, 1978

You just can't beat that shit. Their most popular album was 1981's Moving Pictures. Great album, kind of the bridge between what they already did and the direction they were headed.

Sounds very lyrical.

Closer to the heart is good. Haven't checked out the rest.

The best way to wake up. Musical coffee.

Even if he's not, my endorsement of his statement is.

Perfect accompaniment to chamomile tea at breakfast.

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere  
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst  
Are full of passionate intensity.
