So, here's a question for you, what do you wake up to each morning? Since most of us use our Cellphones to wake up now, do you use a MP3? Or just the plain old Radio or annoying Buzzer Alarm?

At the moment I am waking up to a trolol remix, which tends to get me out of bed pretty damn quickly.

What's your trick for getting up out of bed on time?

Still get up to the same alarm that I have had for the last 20+ years...

I do use my cell when I am traveling but it is just set to a non-annoying alarm sound.

Don't need an alarm at all as I wake up at around the same time every morning without one.

I wake up to my watch beeping. Unless I'm lying on my arm, in which case I don't hear it and sleep right through it :)

I have a JBL iPod alarm clock which has an iPod mini connected to it, loaded with chill/house music. There's some samba and bossa nova as well. Pretty relaxing.

Except the dock turns on and gradually increases the volume if I don't press Snooze or turn it off, which can get quite annoying.

I use an MP3 of the Team Fortress 2 music, the one that starts off with the ticking clock, followed shortly by blaring trumpets. It's a good incentive to get up quickly and turn the alarm off.

either:

1) baby screaming
2) wife prodding me to get up and make her a cup of tea
3) my phone going off telling me I have a meeting in 15 minutes (this is the worst one as I live over 20 minutes from work)
