"Get me lots of brand new fans..."

"Wake Me Up" is the Article of the Month! HOORAY!

This article is about the song by Avicii. You may be looking for the song by Wham! with a similar name.

"Wake Me Up" by Avicii featuring Aloe Blacc is featured on Just Dance 2014 and Just Dance 2015 as a downloadable track. It was later featured as part of Just Dance Now and Just Dance Unlimited.

Appearance of the Dancer

The dancer resembles a cowboy. He has a beard, a necklace and two bracelets, a black hat, a red and black checked shirt, a yellow and turquoise jacket, dark purple jeans and black shoes. In the instrumental parts of the song, all his body and clothes are dark; only the jacket, the necklace and the glove are still visible.


The background is a country landscape of a lake and mountains. It resembles how the time passes by. During the electro-sequence, the floor changes to crystal, the sky shows stars and the mountains change to pink line patrons.

Gold Moves

There are 2 Gold Moves in the song, both of which are the same:

Both Gold Moves: Look down and bring your hands swing your hands from behind you to your hips.

  • Wake Me Up is the first song by Avicii in the series.
  • An updated version of the routine featuring slightly improved graphics was released on April 22, 2014.
  • In the lyrics, "So wake me up when it’s all over" is misinterpreted as "So wake me up! When it’s all over".
    • In Just Dance Unlimited, the mistake is fixed and the line is separated into two, like many other lines of the song (such as "And I didn’t know/I was lost").
  • Upon initial release, Aloe Blacc was credited as a featured artist. Officially, Blacc is uncredited. The downloadable track was later updated to remove his name on all consoles except Wii. Subsequent games also credit only Avicii.
  • Wake Me Up comes with two avatars: one that resembles the dancer and another that resembles Teensie from Rayman Legends.
  • P2 from Us Under The Sunshine reuses the dancer's shirt.
  • The song has been shortened by 50 seconds for the game.
  • In the Mashups of Bailando and I Gotta Feeling, the coach is not seen in black skin in his part of the routine, despite being so in the original routine.
  • In a fankit containing items from Just Dance 2016, an avatar representing the coach in its dark form can be found.
  • Wake Me Up was featured in the Uplay Instructions Booklet inside the Just Dance 2015 game cover even though it is a downloadable track.
  • The background is similar to the mountain scenes used in the official music video and lyrics video for the song.
