Xbox Music/Windows Phone Alarm Clock

I would like to see Microsoft work on providing more comprehensive alarm functionality by utilizing Xbox Music, whether that is through a physical hardware solution with an actual alarm clock (iHome?) or by integrating and improving the current alarm app to take advantage of Xbox Music and other music apps.

        Yeah, exactly, I was thinkin' more along the lines of waking up to a playlist, or an album, or an artist... I don't mind lying half asleep listen' to music...

        Alarm clock is one of the few essential things that a smartphone has to do well. This is a great idea. Maybe you could take it a step further by reaching out to popular producers/DJs and getting them to record/create some jingles/notifications/alarms - maybe even carve out a separate genre in the Xbox Music store - so people can purchase them.

        The ability to play songs as alarms is definitely needed!

        (Not to mention that the WP 8.1 Alarms app still needs to have a stopwatch and timer like it does for Windows 8.1)

        Can we also add the countdown timer/alarm to this suggestion, with the ability to stop music playback? IE, shutdown audio in 30 minutes, without the timer needing to have focus?

        I loved this feature on my Zune. I think it would allow you to set a playlist to wake up to so you wouldn't necessarily know what song would play. This would be a great feature to add to Xbox music!
