I pretty much play music right away when I wake up as I'm having my first (and only) cup of coffee.
Never anything action oriented. I like to listen to something quite and easy on the ears, for example "Somewhere In Time". Ive talked to friends and some say they need a few hours to wake up before they can listen to music.

So no one wakes up to music? Yes I'm shamelessly bumping my own thread!

"Tours Du Monde, Tours Du Ciel "by Georges Delerue is another wonderful score I like to wake up to.
Really any Delerue score is great to wake up to other than maybe The Black Hole.

My alarm is the Jurassic Park theme so that's literally the music I wake up to.

But after I got of bed and took a shower I usually turn on music (sometimes also while showering). I do tend to avoid more aggressive, action music at first but overall there isn't anything specific I listen to.

I do notice that when I listen to something more cheerful that it has a positive effect on my mood for the rest of the day.

I dont have time to listen to anything right as I wake up, but on my way to catch the bus I always listen to the same cues, but in periods. I've had a period where I listened to Zimmer's "Games" from WW84 as it gives me energy. But lately I've been switching between "Tick-Tock" and "Where We're Going". Both from INTERSTELLAR.

My alarm was the Walking Dead theme because captures my feelings really well in the morning. But than I changed it into "Welcome To Bright Falls" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eh7bneLa2ek&list=PL0FDD4B55498CC468&index=3) from the Video Game "Alan Wake" because I wanted to start the day more positively.

While writing this, I changed it to "Parallelocam" from "LOST: Season 6, Vol. 2" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dAZp5Y83bzQ).

But after breakfast, anything is possible, musically speaking. Today it was HGW's "Wonder Woman".

I woke up this morning to the sound of my wife snoring... or was it to the synths (aka "farts") from THE DON IS DEAD ? wink

Respectfully (because it obviously works for you Randy) I've always avoided using any sound effect or music for an alarm clock. Last thing I want is to associate being wrenched out of my lovely slumber with something I love, for fear of it becoming something a I learn to hate! Lol.

I suppose I must not be a morning person because I happen to loath unnatural sounds too early in the morning. I really need to come 'round in peace until I'm wide awake. It's the reason tv was banned from the bedroom a long time ago.

I often use fanfares (usually by Rózsa) to wake myself up on days I have work. Though on Easter, I like to awaken the Rome recording of Rózsa's Resurrection music from King of Kings.

Anything really is possible if you were listening to Harry Gregson-Williams’ Wonder Woman!

Oh, lol... didn't notice that... Harry... Rupert... whats's the difference? Now I'm listening to John McCreary's "Rupert Potter And The Revenge Of The Temple Of Doom", A really great book written by James T.T. Picard.

I'm a terrible morning person, so I can't have music associated with that. I either wake up by myself, or because there's noise outside, or the alarm on my phone.

Once I start the work day about an hour or so later, I can have music -- but I need to start with some calm stuff, whether film music or otherwise.

Easy does it.

Never any music in the morning.

When I habe a lie in I usually wake to the sound of a neighbour clearing his throat of phlegm.

My alarm clock is set to a light rock station that plays music from the 70s, 80s and early 90s, but on weekdays I mainly wake up to "Headlines With Heather".

I have the volume much lower than usual but I need music to wake up.

I currently tend to watch a YouTube video or a DVD with my breakfast. During my college years, though, I usually snapped on the radio right after I switched off my alarm and listened for a few minutes while trying to rouse myself. The classical music station was a common choice; the most memorable morning was a Tuesday the day after I had started talking with the most wonderful girl I had ever met up until then. The music playing when I turned the radio on was a Glazunov "Concert Waltz." As I listened, I was thinking of how much I was looking forward to seeing her again that day. That piece of music still evokes that morning for me.

That's a good book. I play it often.

I like to wake gradually with a little RB for an alarm.
