Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, #897


Every morning I wake up my kids for school.  They are not so easy to get out of bed.  Usually I entice them with breakfast and a cool wash cloth on their eyes.  My husband, apparently, has a different method.

Yesterday, I did my usual, “Good morning!  Time to get up!”  Everyone had congregated in my daughter’s room.  All seemed like it was going smoothly, so I walked out for a moment.

Suddenly, I heard loud music bouncing through the house and walked back in to find my husband sitting at my daughter’s computer, my son jumping up and down on the bed, and my daughter giggling with a huge smile plastered on her face.  All of this was set to Wham’s “Wake Me Up Before You Go Go.”

“You’re listening to Wham?” I asked.  My husband sheepishly grinned, “This is what I got when I Googled “wake up” music.”  He didn’t realize it, but he gave me a song of the day.  My kids were completely enamored with the song, too.

Sometimes I’ll pick my song of the days, because they represent the moment I am writing about.  In a case like this though, it was a glaring happy musical moment that I just couldn’t pass up.  So click HERE to listen, and hopefully it will brighten your day, too.  Enjoy and good morning!



About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
