Set a Different Alarm for Each Day of the Week
Every Wednesday this YouTube series adds a new music video in which the crying frog says, “Today is Wednesday, boys.” Wouldn’t one of these wednesday songs be a better wednesday morning alarm than “Radar (default)”? You can do it, my boys.
The best alarm clock is music you love but never listen to
Never use your favorite music as an alarm clock , because once a song becomes your alarm clock, it tires you every time you hear it. Personally, I like to use groundbreaking music likeBad Lip Reading’s “It’s Not a Moon” or Seinfeld’s Steamwave : music that doesn’t sound randomly or in a coffee shop.
The key to this music is that it’s fun, catchy, but a little annoying and often not even available on Spotify or iTunes. It usually doesn’t make it into your jogging playlist. This material makes great ringtones and great alarm tones.
Alternatively, you can use “classic” songs that you know but don’t add to your music library. For example, old songs, music from movies or video games, or deep cuts that you usually miss. They just need to beat Marimba or Seaside or your unfortunate 99-cent Banana Talking Minions download.
Different alarm clock every day
Think about this: if your alarm tells you what day it is, you’ll get a head start as soon as you wake up. Both new music and golden old songs tell you great about the current day. Consider this composition:
- Monday: Bracelets,Manic Monday.
- Tuesday: ILOVEMAKONNEN and Drake,“Tuesday”
- Wednesday: ZimoNitrome,“ OS environment“
- Thursday: Conan O’Brien, Thursday.
- Friday:Do you really have to ask?
- Saturday: Chicago,Saturday in the Park.
- Sunday: U2, “Sunday Bloody Sunday.”
Not all of these songs are available on iTunes or where you buy music. And maybe you don’t actually have music, but are streaming through Apple Music, Spotify, or (hahaha) Tidal. No big deal, you can still turn any song into an audio file with the following apps.
How to turn any music into an alarm clock
If you want to use popular music as your alarm, most platforms make it easy. Android and iOS allow you to use any song from your music library as an alarm clock. (Clarification: this includes Apple Music for iOS.) The same goes for the Google Home speaker and Amazon Echo .
If your song is on a different stream or video like Spotify or an AVI file, you can still record it by capturing audio from any application. Just use the Audacity audio editor (free for Windows / Mac / Linux) or the free trial of Piezo (Mac only), a simple application specifically designed to capture audio from any application.
Then add your new recordings to your favorite mobile music library and you go gold. Or you can just wake up every morning to System of a Down screaming“Wake up!”
