Funk, it ain't

Front desk? Hello? Yes, I would like a wake-up call, please, at 5am…

I’ve been amused by Mark Adler‘s choice of “wake-up” songs for Spirit‘s surface mission support folks beginning each sol on Mars. On sol 2, he played “Good Morning, Good Morning”, by the Beatles. For sol 3, it was “Oh What a Beautiful Mornin'”, by Rodgers and Hammerstein. Since the president called before sol 4, it was the Mormon Tabernacle Choir’s performance of “Hail to the Chief.” For Sol 5, he picked the Rolling Stones and “Satisfaction.” (Gathered from various places.)

UPDATE: Sol 6 began with Bob Marley and “Get Up, Stand Up.”
