Songs not to wake up to

| Oct. 24, 2007

I present you with the worst of AM radio — not the AM band, but rather any music that wakes you up before noon. I heard the first two yesterday and now today. I think JACK FM is trying to kill me.

Everybody Wants to Rule the World
Choice lyrics: “Welcome to your life, there’s no turning back”

Love Till Tear Us Apart
Choice lyrics: “When routine bites hard, and ambitions are low”

Another One Bites the Dust
Choice lyrics: self-explanatory

Destination Unknown
Choice lyrics: When will my time come? Has it all been said and done?

The Message
Choice lyrics: Got a bum education, double-digit inflation / Can’t take the train to the job, there’s a strike at the station

Choice lyrics: You’re older than you’ve ever been. And now you’re even older.
(Since they never play this song on the radio, if you do hear it, it’s pretty clear somebody hates you.)

Choice lyrics: I woke up this morning I was feelin’ fine, but this cat starts banging man, what a swine.
Ironic considering this is a song about trying to get some sleep.

What Have I Done To Deserve This?
Choice lyrics: How am I gonna get through? How am I gonna get through?

You Can’t Alway Get What You Want
Choice lyrics: You can’t always get what you want / You can’t always get what you want / You can’t always get what you want

Choice lyrics: Peel me off this velcro seat and get me moving / I sure as hell can’t do it by myself

Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song)
Choice lyrics: Is that all you get for your money? / If that’s what you have in mind / yeah if that’s what you’re all about / Good luck movin’ up ’cause I’m movin’ out.

    I used to love JACK because morning shows make me wish I’d died in my sleep, and JACK has no morning show. But lately, it’s making up for that by playing the most downbeat, lethargic songs. Who wants to hear Filter’s “Take a Picture” before 8 a.m.? Who wants to hear Filter’s “Take a Picture” ever? In conclusion, maybe I’ll switch to NPR.
