Setting a specific song as an alarm

Q: How do I put a song as my sound on my alarm clock?

– Juan

A: The iPod has the ability to choose a playlist as an alarm clock wake sound, but not a specific song. This at first seems to mean that you won’t be able to select a specific song to wake up to without access to a computer.

However, there is at least one way to fix this:

Simply create an On-The-Go playlist containing the song, and then select the On-The-Go playlist in the Alarm Clock settings. To add a song to the On-The-Go playlist, simply highlight it as you browse the iPod’s library, and hold down the center button.

When the highlight blinks, the song has been added to the playlist.
