3am Mixtapes: Episode Twenty One: Alarm Clocks

Each week on the 3am Mixtapes podcast, I will share with you the Top Six Songs of a certain subject. The topics can be as general like most anticipated new releases of 2014. Or some might be a little more... esoteric. Top Six Songs By Bands Featuring Vancouver Trumpet Player Andrew Lee.

And this week, it’s the Top Six Songs To Wake Up To! Sure, you could wake up the the screeching WAH WAH WAH or BRRRRRRRING of an alarm clock, OR you could set one of your favourtie songs into your phone to wake up to every morning. Or I suppose you could put one of your least favourite to force you to get up and shut it off, but I’m gonna focus on the good songs.

Here to get you awake are:

"Letter From an Occupant" by The New Pornographers
"Romantic Rights" by Death From Above 1979
"Typical" by Mutemath
"Creatures Great & Small" by Aidan Knight
"Know Til Now" by Jim James
"Wake Up" by Arcade Fire

Any questions or comments or waffles or criticisms or suggestions for future themes are welcome!

  1. Love this topic! This became quite a big debate in my life a few years ago during a 6-week stint when I was living in Hong Kong, an already overcrowded city, in an apartment with 7 other people. We'd always try to be the first to wake up so that we could surprise each other with a crazy, creative, or annoying wake-up tune. The winner of the entire experience (based solely on the fact that it's the only song that I remember the experience of waking up to) is this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWVI9DEqiIg The Zookeeper's Boy by Mew
