Best U2 song for your alarm...

?

I kinda like using The Miracle, but decided to shake things up in my life and just swapped to Big Girls Are Best. I'll let everyone know how it goes tomorrow morning.

So what about you, fellow users of Interference?

I've had HMTMKMKM from U222 for while now. It definitely wakes me up but I find I'm subconsciously makes me hate the song a little bit lol.

The last 10 seconds of The Wanderer would do the job pretty well.

For quite some time as a teenager I used the Under a Blood Red Sky CD as my alarm. It seemed like a good idea originally, something enjoyable to wake up to. I slowly started to sleep through it, so I'd wake up halfway through Gloria, or maybe early in 11 O'clock Tick Tock... I realised this was a problem when I woke up one morning near the end of The Electric Co.

I now have the most obnoxious the-world-is-ending shrieking alarm possible. Not even a song as bad as Stand Up Comedy could get me out of bed to turn off the alarm as quickly as this bad boy.

How about Bono singing "Refujesus" over and over in a loop?

If you live in a high rise and sleep with your windows open that could be deadly.

I dunno, there's a difference between something to wake you up and something to make you suicidal.

I had Zooropa as an alarm as a kid. I liked that it eased you into the track for a while before fully kicking in during the third section.

Probably best not to play any Eric Clapton, either.

Mornings fucking suck and using any good song to wake you up forever tarnishes the song.

I still get entranced by Arcade Fire’s Wake Up because of this. Same with Catching the Butterfly by the Verve. Like, now, whenever I hear the song, I can’t tell if I’m actually awake and I say “oh shit have I been sleeping this whole time?!” to myself.

Wow, you have a bad relationship with consciousness don't you.

Fast Cars seems like it would be a good one.

Me and Big Girls aren't really working out, so I'm randomly going over you peeps' suggestions.

Electric Co. and Fast Cars sound like they have potential. Whoever said Refujesis--even in jest--go fuck yourself. Wake Up Dead Man and Bad sound nice in theory, but c'mon... hardly practical. I'm afraid Zooropa will be too intoxicating of a listen that I'll just lay there until the song finishes. I laughed at the Clapton joke and then felt bad about it. If I wanted to begin my weekdays with an asskicking, HMTMKMKM would do the job, but I'm looking for something a bit... lighter, I guess. The Zooropa "hidden track" is just a goddamn siren--stop playing around.
