Happy 4th of July, everybody!
Great songs often get overlooked. There are tons of songs that should be getting more airplay and just aren’t. That’s why, every once in a while, I want to recommend a song that I think is great that I never get to hear on the radio. Maybe it wasn’t released as a single or maybe it just wasn’t that popular. I’m giving them a new lease on life in my category called Underrated Song.
This week it’s AWOLNATION’s “Wake Up” This is my favorite song on their 2011 debut album Megalithic Symphony, but it was never released as a single. The female voice that begins it gives it that 90s’ feel. Then the song gets rowdy as you hear Aaron Bruno’s voice shouting at you to “Wake Up!”, but when it hits that chorus, you feel like you’re at the beach. It becomes laid-back, but still up-beat and makes you want to dance. Enjoy!
