About Wake Up

"Wake Up" is a song recorded by American singer Hilary Duff for her first compilation album, Most Wanted (2005). It was co-written by Duff and the Dead Executives, who also produced the song. Along with the three other new recordings on Most Wanted, "Wake Up" was crafted with the intention of having a "totally different sound" from Duff's previous material. Although she thought of the work to be a new milestone in her career, she was at the same time nervous about how her fans would react to the material. "Wake Up" was released as the lead single from Most Wanted on July 12, 2005. Described by Duff as an '80s-influenced dance-pop song, "Wake Up" is lyrically about going out and having fun. The song was released digitally in the United Kingdom on October 24, 2005."Wake Up" received mixed reviews from critics. Some praised it for being "irresistible" and having a fun nature, while others criticized it for its "insipid" lyrics and noted that it sounds like "leftovers" from Duff's previous releases. The song achieved some commercial success, becoming a top-ten hit in Ireland, Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom. It reached the top forty in several other countries: Australia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Switzerland and the United States. The song's accompanying music video features Duff leaving her house and attending various nightclubs and parties.

There's people talking,
They talk about me,
They know my name,
They think they know everything,
But they don't know anything about me

Give me a dance floor,
Give me a DJ,
Play me a record,
Forget what they say

'Cause I need to go,
Need to getaway tonight

I put my makeup on a Saturday night,
I try to make it happen,
Try to make it alright,
I know I make mistakes,
I'm living life day to day,
It's never really easy but it's okay

Wake up, wake up on a Saturday night,
Could be New York,
Maybe Hollywood and Vine,
London, Paris, maybe Tokyo,
There's something going on anywhere I go tonight,
Tonight, yeah tonight

The city's restless,
It's all around me,
People, emotions,
Sick of all the same routines,
And they need to go,
They need to getaway, tonight

I put my makeup on a Saturday night,
I try to make it happen,
Try to make it alright,
I know I make mistakes,
I'm living life day to day,
It's never really easy but it's okay

Wake up, wake up on a Saturday night,
Could be New York,
Maybe Hollywood and Vine,
London, Paris, maybe Tokyo,
There's something going on anywhere I go tonight,
Tonight, yeah tonight

People all around,
Everywhere that you go,
People all around you,
They don't really know you,
Everybody's watching like it's some kind of show,
Everybody's watching they don't really know you now,
(They don't really know you, they don't really know you)
And forever

Wake up, wake up,
Wake up, wake up

Wake up, wake up on a Saturday night,
Could be New York,
Maybe Hollywood and Vine,
London, Paris, maybe Tokyo,
There's something going on anywhere I go

Wake up, wake up on a Saturday night,
Could be New York,
Maybe Hollywood and Vine,
London, Paris, maybe Tokyo,
There's something going on anywhere I go tonight,
Tonight, yeah tonight
