Wiz Khalifa’s “Wake Up” (2011) vs. Arcade Fire’s “Wake Up” (2005)
Arcade Fire’s “Wake Up” is frequently seen as anthem of sorts, with its choral crescendos and airy melodies. Interpretations of the song vary, but hey, it sounds cool. “Wake Up,” a track on Wiz Khalifa’s Rolling Papers LP, is an anthem for those who’ve worked hard and won. The infectious chorus illustrates not wanting to sleep and miss out on the fruits of your labor.
