‘Greece’ is the fourth song on George Harrison’s tenth solo album Gone Troppo.
Harrison’s playful spirit on the album found him setting sail on a litany of puns:
You may Athena
Handed on Plato
Hole in my Socrates
I came Acropolis
On Monty Pythagoras
‘Wake Up My Love’ was released on 8 November 1982 as the album’s lead single, with ‘Greece’ on the b-side.
Despite its commercial sound, ‘Wake Up My Love’ failed to chart in the UK and peaked at 53 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
