Video of the week: WHAM! ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go’
May 16, 2022
This week’s Video Of The Week is Wham!’s ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go’ which was released this month in 1984. Here are a few facts you might not know about the smash hit…
-The inspiration for the song came from a scribbled note that Andrew Ridgeley had left for his parents.
-The note was intended to read “wake me up before you go” but he accidentally wrote ‘up’ twice so finished the sentence with “before you go go”.
-The song became WHAM!’s first number 1 hit in the UK and US.
