Christmas Nukebox: Last Christmas, Wham!

Monday 16 December 2013

It’s getting close to Christmas, so it’s time to bring out the big guns in our Christmas Nukebox: Last Christmas by Wham!

Obnoxious exclamation mark aside, Wham! were already a pretty huge deal in the mid-80s pop scene before Last Christmas arrived, having had hits previously with sexy-sax number Careless Whisper and perennial student union bar fave Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.

But perhaps their best remembered hit is this forlorn tale of broken hearts spread across not one, but two Christmases. ¬†You see, last Christmas George Michael ‘gev’ you his heart, but the very next day you ‘gev’ it away. What a bitch.

Fun fact: George Michael and Princess Diana were using the same hairstylist at this point. Probably.
