Mornings are hard enough to face when you're not trudging off to a world of cubicles and fluorescent lights. Just waking up presents a challenge: The buzz of the alarm clock is easy to ignore, and FM radio is easy to turn off. The occupant of the cubicle next to yours may well kick off every day with "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go," but that's not going to work for you.
Instead, give this 6 a.m. wakeup call a try. It's a perfect playlist for those days when you need more than two cups of coffee just to summon the strength to walk out the door in the morning.
