5 Songs To Set As Your Morning Alarm

It's time to stop waking up to Marimba, and start waking up to music.

5 Songs To Set As Your Morning Alarm
The Oz Blog

With school back in session, adolescents and young adults have been forced to wake up way earlier than they want. Having something to look forward to can make waking up a little bit easier. Here are five songs to set as your morning alarm (one for each day of the school week!)

1. “Wake Up” by Hilary Duff

Because of its title, it’s probably obvious why this would be a good song to wake up to. You should start off your Monday morning with this tune. It starts with background vocals whispering “wake up, wake up” which will ease you out of your slumber. Yes, the song is about getting up to get ready to party on a Saturday night, but it’ll put you in a good mood to start your week off right.

2. “Rockin’ Robin” by Bobby Day

Maybe you’re used to waking up to the sound of birds in the morning but need to step it a notch. Make this your morning alarm for Tuesday. Bobby Day impersonates birds, singing “tweet, tweet, tweedle-lee-dee.” It starts off calm, but gets more upbeat as the song continues, helping you get up and get ready to rock your Tuesday.

3. “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls

It’s Wednesday, which means you’re halfway through the week! There’s no excuse for not being able to get out of bed at this point, but just in case you’re still struggling, “Wannabe” is the song to get you moving. It starts off with Mel B singing/screaming what she really really wants. If you care about Mel B and her desires, then you should get out of bed. (And even if you don’t, you still need to get up.)

4. “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” by Tears for Fears

The week is almost over. What better way to motivate yourself to get through those last couple days of school than with Tears for Fears' classic, “Everybody Wants to Rule the World.” It starts off calm and chill, but then picks up when the melody changes, with the vocals going up and down and repeating this pattern until the famous line, “everybody wants to rule the world” is sung. It’ll start your morning off on a calm, yet uplifting note.

5. “Best Day of My Life” by the American Authors

This hit by the American Authors is the perfect way to start your Friday. It’ll put you in the kind of mood that makes you feel like you can accomplish anything. It’ll get you looking forward to the weekend, making you want to get the school day done and over with, and the only way to do that is to get up and get going. This is the perfect kind of song to set as your morning alarm and to make your weekend anthem.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
