Do you use a Prince /O(+> song as a phone alarm??

Until i can transfer my CD collection down to flac or mp3 ...I've been using DAISY CHAIN as a morning wake up song...

Sure, it only loops the first 12 seconds or so, but

1) It's Funny
2) it's a jokey PRINCE* SCREAM
3) It's sharp enough to grab my attention in the morning without sending me further down dream alley.


DO YOU HAVE A PRINCE MORNING WAKE UP SONG?


I realise that "GET OFF" would work for the scream as well....but that might lead to just relaxing more; digging on dreams, than getting up

Not all the time (I change it every couple of weeks or so) but right now it happens to be StopThisTrain, but in full not 12 seconds biggrin

My call ringtone is Chromeo. I wouldn't have anything but a Chromeo song as a ringtone nod

I use the first track off the Exodus album, "NPG Operator Intro" as my ringtone. It's distinct and loud enough for me to hear it anywhere but confuses the hell out of people if I let it ring for ages smile

The intro from "Gett Off" is my ringtone and it loops until I answer it which freaks people and my dog out.

I'm thinking of one of the "Good God" shouts from the "America" video or the intro from the 12" version of "Mountains" for texting.

Art official cage! “Welcome home class” gets me every time and makes me smile. Plus the song is so upbeat that it puts me in a good mood.

I've been using Loose! on and off as an alarm or ringtone since 1994.

My ring tone is a loop of the guitar intro to 777-9311. Reason? My phone number is 777-9311.

Haha ! LOOSE! and 777-9311 that is slick!


I figure PRETTYMAN would be great....especially if you're caught with a do rag.



Back in my flip phone days, i dl'd a BLACK SWEAT ringtone. ...it was the break "U can act hard if u want 2.."

Ahh...golden days. Used to rock Stevie's Superwoman for my (then) wonderful Francis. Ahh...dang.

I'm thinking of pulling out some audio editing software and using the solo break from EYE HATE U... the horns in I wanna be Ur Lover would be fantastic as well.

No, I don't have any song as an alarm.

Especially after I forgot to turn it off during a week I was working earlier. I left the office (with my phone in the bag) and then my boss approached me with my bag making noises and asked me if it was my alarm. My colleague joked it could have been a bomb instead biggrin

I use the song "Lovesexy" as an alarm, it helps me be better friends with morning time. One of my favorites and so positive!
