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.
