I Got You Babe

Even though I'm presently without a clock radio, haunted or otherwise, I still have an alarm. For the past two years or more, I've just been using the alarm clock on my cell phone. And being that I'm on call basically 24/7/365, I always have my cell phone handy. Even when I'm asleep, it's usually right next to my pillow.

For as long as I can remember, I've just used one of the pre-loaded standard alarm tones that came with the phone--I think the one I've been using was called 'Hyperactive'. But no longer.

I've been downloading a few tunes here and there this weekend, and while doing so, I was thinking that I should customize my daily wake-up call with something better. I couldn't come up with anything suitable at first--I mean, I didn't want to use one of my favorite songs as an alarm, because eventually I'd end up hating it. And I certainly didn't want something especially irritating either. Mellow tunes were out, too, because I'd probably just sleep right through them.

But then it became glaringly obvious as to which song I should use. I mean, if you're only going to hear one song every day when you wake up, is there nothing more appropriate than Sonny & Cher singing I Got You Babe, straight outta Groundhog Day?

I think not.

Now, I just have to find a few songs to use as ringtones for whenever some of my 'more experienced' gals call me up. Kinda like the Highlander, there can only be one Mrs. Robinson...
