Appearance of the Dancer
The dancer is a man who 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.
There are 2 Gold Moves in this routine, both of which are the same:
Both Gold Moves: Look down and swing your hands from behind you to your hips.

- Wake Me Up is the first song by Avicii in the series.
- The song has been shortened by 50 seconds for the game.
- Upon initial release, Aloe Blacc was credited as a featured artist. Officially, Blacc is uncredited. The version of the track that gets downloaded to the player's console after purchasing the song was later updated as of an unknown date to remove Aloe Blacc from the artist credit in the in-game menu.
- A few months after the artist name update in the in-game menu, the song was additionally removed and relisted on April 22, 2014 in order to reflect the updated artist name in the title and artwork on the online marketplaces for the consoles. The relisted version on the online marketplaces comes with a notice that the relisting is not a different version of the song and that it is not necessary for the player to purchase the relisted release of the song if they already purchased the original release.
- On the Xbox One, this song was mistakenly removed from Just Dance 2014 altogether in the process with no updated version released and is now nowhere to be found.
- Subsequent games also only credit Avicii.
- In the lyrics, "So wake me up when it’s all over" is miswritten 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").
- Wake Me Up comes with two avatars: one that resembles the dancer and another that resembles Teensie from Rayman Legends.
- 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.
