The real reason to switch from Spotify to Apple Music is waking up to any song you want

New, 77 comments

Bikini Kill's "Feels Blind" is the perfect song to wake up to. The bass line starts slow and even. Then Kathleen Hanna's awe-inspiring voice kicks in. Within a few seconds, she's urging me to get the fuck out of bed — and it works, every time. But even though I'm convinced that I have the perfect wake-up routine, I'm also totally open to trying something new. And now, I can.

Long gone are the days of buying a single song on iTunes

With Apple Music, waking up to any bloody song you want has become easy again. Long gone are the days of buying a single song on iTunes just so you could use it to set an alarm in Apple's native Clock app. And you can forget all those terrible, janky third-party apps that tried — and often failed — to wake you up to songs in your Spotify library.

From now on, your slumber can end with The Internet's "Dontcha" one morning and Lizzo's "Batches & Cookies" the next — it doesn't matter. If Apple Music hasn't convinced you to switch from Spotify yet, the Apple Music-Clock alarm combo just might. For the right kind of music nerd, it's the iPhone game-changer your mornings have been waiting for.
