Wake Up was a contender to represent the UK at the 1976 Eurovision Song Contest but was eventually placed 2nd from 12 entries, just missing out by two points at the 'A Song For Europe' national selection show held on February 25th at the Royal Albert Hall in London, hosted by Michael Aspel and broadcast live on BBC1. The winning song, Save Your Kisses For Me by Brotherhood Of Man was chosen by the votes of 14 regional juries.
Release date from booklet 'The New Singles' No. 614.
I'm sure those 10 hours stuck on the A23 last week didn't help her mood. Had this song got through, I think there would have been serious problems as it had been written and recorded (and unreleased) by the Arrows with different verse lyrics in 1974, 2 years prior to this and suddenly had different writers by 1976.
