Why upbeat pop song like the Beach Boys' Good Vibrations are more effective at waking you up than a beeping alarm

Scientists examined how 50 people woke up each morning at home and the impact this had on their mental performance in the hours after getting out of bed.

They found that people who woke up listening to melodic music suffered lower levels of sleep inertia compared to those who woke up to a classical beeping alarm sound.

Researchers found that while sound is generally good at attracting human attention, melodic music may be better at holding it for longer and help get the brain going in the morning.

This melodic music a appeared to almost entirely neutralise sleep inertia in those taking part in the study.
