Bloody great song this is. Off Gone Troppo as well! (Which is an album, I think, fails in the musicality department.)

Lalalalove it.

This song is one of the reasons Gone Troppo is my favorite George album.

@meanmistermustard thinks it's the only flop on an otherwise brilliant record. I believe he's said somewhere 'Skip "Wake Up My Love" and you have a brilliant album' or somesuch.

I don't love it, but I don't quite hate it, either. I do think it is terribly dated compared to the rest of the album, and much prefer 'That's The Way It Goes', 'Unknown Delight', and 'Greece' (yes).

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

I don't think it sounds dated. At least no more dated than everything else George has done.
