Album: Glee: The Music, The Complete Season Four
Released: March 18, 2013
By: Wham!
Sung by: New Directions
Solos: Blaine and Sam
Place: The Choir Room
The April Rhodes Civic Pavilion
Episode: Guilty Pleasures

Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go by Wham! is featured in Guilty Pleasures, the seventeenth episode of Season Four. It is sung by the New Directions, with Blaine and Sam singing lead.

With Will out for the week and Finn having left as the co-leader of the New Directions, the Glee Club would be cancelled for the week if it weren't for Blaine and Sam. After Blaine admits to liking the band Wham! they come up with a weekly assignment. After having called everyone to the choir room, they reveal their idea: 'Guilty Pleasures'. Blaine and Sam are then asked to reveal their guilty pleasures first, so the two best friends decide to do it through song as the first song of the episode begins.

At first, the New Directions stand around awkwardly, but later, they join in as they can't help themselves. While Sam and Blaine lead, they all eventually end up in the auditorium, dancing in colorful clothing and wearing sunglasses as they enjoy the performance together. The performance is similar to the original video by Wham!

Lyrics

Sam:
Jitterbug
Jitterbug
Jitterbug
Jitterbug

Blaine (with Sam and New Directions):
You put the boom-boom into my heart (Sam and New Directions: Do, do!)
You send my soul sky high when your lovin' starts
A jitterbug into my brain (Sam and New Directions: Yeah, yeah!)
It goes a (bang-bang-bang) 'til my feet do the same

Sam (Blaine and New Directions):
(Ah, ah) But something's bugging me
(Ah, ah) Something ain't right
(Ah, ah) My best friend told me
(Ah, ah) what you did last night
(Ah, ah) You left me sleepin'
(Ah, ah) in my bed
(Ah, ah) I was dreaming, but

Sam with Blaine and New Directions:
I should have been with you instead

Blaine and Sam with New Directions:
Wake me up before you go-go
Don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
I don't want to miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go-go
'Cause I'm not plannin' on going solo
Wake me up before you go-go whoa

Blaine and Sam:
Take me dancing tonight
I wanna hit that high yeah, yeah

Blaine (with Sam and New Directions):
You take the grey skies out of my way (Sam and New Directions: Do, do)
You make the sun shine brighter than Doris Day
You turned a bright spark into a flame (Sam and New Directions: Yeah, yeah)
My (beats per minute) never been the same

Sam (Blaine and New Directions):
(Ah, ah) 'Cause you're my lady,
(Ah, ah) I'm your fool
(Ah, ah) It makes me crazy
(Ah, ah) when you act so cruel
(Ah, ah) Come on, baby,
(Ah, ah) let's not fight
(Ah, ah) We'll go dancing,

Sam with Blaine and New Directions:
Everything will be all right

Blaine and Sam with New Directions:
Wake me up before you go-go
Don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
I don't want to miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go-go
Cause I'm not plannin on going solo
Wake me up before you go-go whoa

Blaine and Sam:
Take me dancing tonight

Sam with New Directions:
I wanna hit that high (Blaine: yeah, yeah)

Blaine and Sam with New Directions:
Yeah, yeah, yeah baby! (Blaine: Who!)

Sam:

Blaine and Sam:
Cuddle up, baby, move in tight

It's cold out there, but it's warm in bed
They can dance, we'll stay home instead (Blaine: Yeah-yeah)

Sam:
Jitterbug (Blaine and Sam: Oooh)

Blaine and Sam with New Directions:
Wake me up before you go-go
Don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
