Wham! - Last Christmas
We are less than two weeks until Christmas and I've heard the whole Christmas hits playlist 100 times already, but the one song which remains a banger time after time is 'Last Christmas' by Wham!
For me, 'Last Christmas' epitomises Christmas. It is arguably the most recognisable song at this time of year other than Mariah Carey's overrated one, you know the one which everyone seems to like. I don't know what it is about George Michael but he has a power to get the women dancing and even the men moving their hips.
A timeless classic would be the easiest way to describe the track. Even writing this now, I don't need to listen because the song is so engrained into my mind, who even needs a lyrics sheet?
This is just the ultimate feel good Christmas tune and I think we all just wish we were tipsy at the Christmas party having a groove to it!
I'd like to end this weeks throwback just stating the lyrics for you to have a little sing song!
"Last Christmas, I gave you my heart, but the very next day, you gave it away, this year, to save me from tears, I'll give it to someone special." I wonder if George found his someone special?
