iPhone 3.0 doesn't seem to offer any way to use iPod songs for an alarm. I'd suggest 3rd party apps could do this, but I don't think they'd stay on when the iPhone has been in sleep mode all night.
(And push notification would alert you, but couldn't force the app into song playing...)
Might be iPhone fail on that score
Go to Apple iPhone feedback and leave a feature request. I'll do it right now as well

I was able to convert a regular song to a ringtone by just cropping a regular music file into a small 30 second clip (choose any part of the song as long as it doesnt exceed 30 seconds) and renaming the extension of the file to .mRu (i believe this was the correct extension). I then added the song to iTunes.. it loaded it as a Ringtone and w/in Apple's reg CLOCK application u can choose any ringtone as a custom alarm ringer. I'm currently waking up daily to KoL's Use Somebody.
It's not the most convinient process.. but literally took only 2 minutes if that tops... and saves u from having to buy a paid App or even worse an iPhone compatible alarm clock radio.
Hope this helps..

Hey, for those who don't know it yet: in Cydia there's a new tweak called PlayAwake that fully integrates in the default clock app. It allows you to select music or podcasts from the ipod music library as an alarm sound, or better: alarm music
It costs $1.99 but IMO it is totally worth it. It even supports volume ramping so you'll really get up
