"Wake Up Everybody", featuring Melanie Fiona & Common, is the first single off John Legend & The Roots' cover album Wake Up! (September 21st). As far as I'm concerned, they could've (& should've) left that song back in the '70s where it came from. If they wanna spread the same message in the 21st century, they can just write a new daggum song. The video was dull too, apart from the retro scene at the beginning of Common's rap. Sorry, just keepin' it real.
