George Michael (born Georgios Kyrriacos Panayiotou) met Andrew Ridgely in 1979 and they started performing and writing music together and eventually got a recording deal. Their group Wham! was a super successful pop duo. After they disbanded in 1986 they left a string of hits behind.
“Last Christmas ” is one of those hits that has been played every holiday season since it was first released in 1984. In fact just last season it charted #4 on Billboard 2009 List of Hot Holiday Songs and will probably continue to be played each and every holiday season to come.!
Please enjoy the song and the campy Eighties Official Video. Remember that big hair and the shoulder pads of the era? I surely do.
