December 6, 2022
The first Video Of The Week of December could only be WHAM!’s iconic ‘Last Christmas’! Here are a few things about the track you may not have known:
– George Michael wrote ‘Last Christmas’ in his childhood bedroom.
– Did you know that ‘Last Christmas’ didn’t actually reach #1 on the Official UK Chart until 2021?
– In 2019, the film ‘Last Christmas’, inspired by George Michael and WHAM!, was released featuring three WHAM! tracks and twelve of George Michael’s best-loved songs.
We’re delighted to announce that WHAM!’s ‘Fantastic’ and ‘Make It Big’ albums will be released on vinyl for the first time in over 30 years! Pressed on both limited edition colour and black vinyl. Available everywhere on 22nd March. Pre-order nowRead more
