Wake me up before you go go (George Michael)


This uptempo pop song was a number one hit in the mid 80's by George Michael with his duo Wham! I scored it for vocal big band as a shuffle with a jazzy flavour.

There is a 16 bars energetic tutti in the middle of the song (starting at ~1'57'') and an 8 bars solo for 1st alto (not on demo).  At the end there is a modulation (starting at ~3'12'') to end the song a key up.


This is an mp3 of the score-playback by samples. A harmonica plays the vocal-part, but it will give a good impression of the arrangement.

Level: intermediate
