So…here’s three of the songs (technically four songs) that now wake me up from Monday through Friday and gives me some strength to actually get up and drag my ass to a dead end job.
And of course, feel free to add you own three songs in the comment section.
Kanye West – “Champion”
Why not wake up in the morning feeling like a champion? Kinda cliche but fuck it. Loud and upbeat but not too loud and upbeat that I’m throwing shit at my alarm clock. Uplifting but not “You Got The Touch” corny uplifting. Just enough to give me that “champ” feeling in the morning.
Lil’ Wayne – “Mr. Carter” (feat. Jay-Z) & “Dr. Carter”
Album:Tha Carter III 
Okay, this has a lot to do with the fact that my last name is actually Carter. But that’s not the full reason; both the samples on both of these tracks are pretty awesome. That “Something might happen today” epic feeling in the morning is always a good thing. And they say my last name a lot.
Dr. Dre feat. Kurupt, Snoop Dogg, & Daz Dillinger – “Bitches Ain’t Shit”
Album:The Chronic 
Yea, with no irony, “Bitches Ain’t Shit” is a song that’s in my “Wake Up” playlist. If you’re surprised, think about the sweet young ladies that spent the night at my apartment and heard this shit playing at 7am (If you was at the Skype meet-up we had a month or so ago, you know I’m in a fucked up place with women these days). You may shake your head, but I’m the one walking to my car in the morning like George Jefferson after I play this. So of course I win.
