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

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).

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