Don't understand quite why, but when I CANNOT wake up pre-work, listening to "Birdhouse in Your Soul" (as in, They Might Be Giants) does the trick every time. Suddenly I'm bopping around in my chair, smiling, and singing along. Not my favorite song, but my most wakeful? A nice surreal bridge from my dreamlike state, perhaps?
Indigo Girls' Hammer and a Nail is the song that does it for me. - Kirsten
I suspect "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm" (Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong) might also do the trick in a pinch. - Molly Westerman
In high school, it was Why Can't This Be Love by Van Halen and Wild Hearted Son by The Cult that always got me going in the mornings :o) - Melly
