"Good morning, good morning, good!"

Postby GoogaMooga » 17 Jun 2021, 11:24

Alright, imagine you could time your CD player to wake you up every morning with a song instead of breakfast radio, or beeps, or a penetrating rinnng! Wouldn't that be nice? What would you choose?

Bill Withers - "Lovely Day"?
Boo Radleys - "Wake Up, Boo"?
Cat Stevens - "Morning Has Broken"?
MC5 - "Kick Out the Jams"?

Any dulcet tune by Carpenters should do the job, but I think I land on "Lovely Day" after all. Capital Radio in London always used to play that one.

‘Running With The Devil’
Van Halen

The car horns to wake me, the bass to get tuned in, the guitar to kick it up a notch, and DLR to put a smile on my face.

But you can!

My son Zap has a CD/radio/alarm clock which has had for 15 years and does exactly that daily

[or have I missed something...?]

Any iPhone will do this too.

I had a Goldfrapp tune waking me up for years.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

Yes, I expected there was a CD/alarm clock/radio thingy that could do that. Mobiles, of course, are something else again, they can do everything, it seems. Soon I will have to bite the bullet and get a smartphone, as I am getting increasingly cut off from society and services.

I tried to resist too and managed for years Googs.

Trouble is once you've got one , it's so useful, one can't live without it.

Checking the weather, looking something up on wikipedia, needing a calculator and of course taking a few photo and sending them to your muckers [not of private parts I hasten to add!]

No, he did have to add it. Once he told me, "Matt, I'm going to send you a picture of my Private Parts."
This is what he sent:

The Beatles with "Good Morning, Good Morning" from Sgt Pepper's?

Yeah, for years I thought that would be the ideal early riser song, but I think you have to be extraordinarily chipper to take that one every morning.

You're right. I think I might try limiting it to just the first 10 seconds on a loop (so just the cockerel + the title). Even then I think there's a chance that a morning would come along when I'd end up doing some damage to the radio.

Here's one that also starts with a cockerel, but I think more successfully puts you in the mood for your daily slog:

The Gap Band, "Early in the Morning", 1982

Would have been You Make Me Feel by Hall and Oates but I think I’ve finally driven that one into the ground!
Maybe Johnny Carson by The Beach Boys? Or Public Image by Public Imagine Limited.

A CD alarm clock would be good but I think an iPhone would be a bit tinny unless it was constantly paired with a Bluetooth speaker.
