(Inspired by the master list of all such songs: http://history.nasa.gov/wakeup%20calls.pdf)

Personally, I would have to go with "I Will Go Sailing No More", from Toy Story.

Edit: Honorable mention goes to "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites" since the timing just barely lines up (EP released in 2010, last shuttle mission in 2011)

Ground Control To Major Tom is a bit morbid... so I think I'll go with....

GF says she'd wake up to Doctor Who theme.  Me personally, I can't decide.

Tame by The Pixies or Oh So Quiet by Bjork. Great wake up songs that I've used for other things. Your brain catches the first part and it's all nice and gentle but it gets in a mad scramble because it wants to be properly awake before it kicks off.

On the Space-Shuttle?  "We're On The Road To Nowhere" by Talking Heads would seem appropriate.

Is that undergrad, or grad school (if they went to grad school)?

For me, grad school:
OU has kind of a crappy fight song...

Youtube doesn't have a version of the fight song at the college I went to as an undergrad. Though, if I remember correctly, the music for the fight song was taken from Notre Dame's fight song, so I guess an instrumental version of that would work.

So, my job is mean and blocks YouTube. Pardon any possible redundancy, please.

I tried to narrow it down to 3, but I couldn't. Here's 4. :-P

"Across The Universe" wouldn't be a very good wake-up song IMNSHO.

Ground Control To Major Tom is a bit morbid...

Space Oddity* :) I love that song and I play it out at my coffee shop open mic sometimes. It's a crowd favorite, and one of mine, too.

There is no up or down in space so a wake-up song would make no sense.

It all depends on how you define your coordinate system. If you're in the space shuttle, you're in low earth orbit, so up is away from the earth, and down is toward the earth.

You know, my university didn't have a fight song, but our high school had some odd cheers.  i wonder if our old prinicpal, Mrs. Euler, would do a cheer for me if I ever went to space.  Would make a weird/embarrassing but somewhat in theme wakeup song.

+1 to Firefly. Except it won't be quite the same after "I am a leaf on the wind" happened and that breaks my little heart.

I have plastic dinos on my computer desk.

Probably a swap up between Q Lazzarus' 'Goodbye Horses' and the Pixies 'Monkey gone to heaven' for myself.
