Wake Up (5:35)

Cover of Funeral

From Funeral and 30 other releases

“Wake Up” is an indie rock song by Canadian rock band Arcade Fire. It was the fifth and final single released from the band’s debut album, Funeral. The single was released as a one-sided 7” vinyl record on November 14, 2005.

“Wake Up” was played as the pre-game intro song at New York Rangers games during the 2006-2007 season. It is currently used as the intro song for Premier League club Aston Villa.

This song was played during the beginning of the U2’s Vertigo Tour shows, usually followed by “City of Blinding Lights”. A brief snippet of the song’s pre-concert appearance opens U2’s concert film Vertigo 2005: Live from Chicago.

In 2009, “Wake Up” was predominately used in a trailer for the film adaptation of “Where the Wild Things Are” by Spike Jonze.

In 2010, “Wake Up” was used in promotional material for the National Football League during the television airing of the Super Bowl.

The beginning of “Wake Up” is played every Friday in the last segment of the Dan Patrick Show.

    This makes me want to confess all my sins and come to terms with my emotions; have an awakening.
