Since I'm now having to get up in the mornings and actually working, I've carefully selected what music to listen to when I wake up and was just wondering what other people listen to in the mornings, be it a CD, radio station or whatever.

I've been waking up to Tom Wait's ''Closing Time'' recently and despite the fact that it is the ultimate drunken late-night record I've found it presents a nice gentle start to the day.

I may sustitute My Aim Is True for Elvis Costello on Mondays, though, since I can't help but be tickled by the idea of being awoken by ''Welcome To The Working Week''.

Chris Moyles. Listening to him blather on is a good incentive to get me up and turn down the radio. Listen to the news, get ready, go to work. The last thing I need in the morning is something that makes me sit back and listen. Do my music listening on the ipod once I leave home.

I was thinking today that Lemon Jelly's Nice Weather For Ducks would be perfect for a funeral as it's impossible to be depressed to, I suppose it could work for mornings. In fact Ramblin' Man would probably be better to start the day with.

Do you have to commute? Since I tend to get up quite a while before I have to get to work, what with only being a five minute drive away, I find that sitting back and listening works for me in the morning.

That and I can't stand Moyles even as an incentive to get me up.

Yup. I used to get up and watch TV for an hour or so (when I Love Lucy was On especially) or listen to the radio. But now I find getting up a struggle so it's just get up, get ready and get out

My phone wakes me up, I leave it on the other side of the room so I have to get up to turn the alarm off.

There are several spaces to programme in alarms and you can set a song for each. The two I use most often are 'Mr Blue Sky' by ELO and 'Day and Night' by Billie Piper.

Then I watch 'Just Shoot me' and 'Will and Grace' on C4 before listening to Terry Wogan on the 35 minute walk to work (usually 8:50am - 9:25am).

My phone alarm, when I remember to use it, which I should because it's pretty effective at waking me up, plays The Benny Hill Show chase theme. It was already on there, and it works, so I kept it.

That's more or less my morning as well. At Uni I always used to watch a film in the morning but I don't think I can handle that now I have to work.

I have to get up insanely early (5 am), so I play it safe and listen to NPR. I'm not subjected to Daniel Schorr's clicking dentures and frothy jowls until later though; the BBC World Service broadcasts until 6:00.

For a long time I used to put the vinyl of David Guetta's Just For One Day. These days I just chuck the shuffle function of the ipod on and see what comes up.

As do I.

My alarm changes with my whimsy but has recently been Blackfoot Roll by Mr Scruff. Can't help but be in decent form waking up to that tune.

I then listen to the radio (flicking between Radio 2, 4 & Radio Ulster) or what music I have on my phone depending on my mood, on what has become a rather pleasant 45 - 50 min walk to work since I moved near the river Lagan.

I also use my phone as my alarm. I tried having it on the other side of the room, but that just means I get up, traverse room, pick up phone, and take it back to bed, hitting snooze ten more times.

I have the piano intro of FFX set as my alarm at the moment, but it was the start of Incubus' 'Aqueous Transmission' for quite a while. I can't stand the regular beeping of a digital alarm clock, and I'm in no mood for happy songs first thing in the morning.

Well, my phone alarm is a chorus of Daleks yelling 'Exterminate!'. And Sarah Kennedy usually gets me up in the mornings.
