Gone Troppo track listing

"Wake Up My Love" is a song by English musician George Harrison. It was also the A-side of the first single pulled from his 1982 album Gone Troppo. The single performed better in the US charts (reaching number 53) than his last single, "Teardrops", but neither song charted in the UK. The song was one of Harrison's attempts to make his music sound contemporary. Ultimate Classic Rock critic Nick DeRiso described "Wake Up My Lobe" to be "as dated an item as any Beatles-related '80s release this side of "Spies Like Us," also noting that its tone resembles that of "Teardrops."[1]
