Best Wham! SongsThe Big British Duo formed by George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley in the early 1980s.
The Top Ten Best Wham! Songs
Written and produced by George Michael, this song actually has very little to do with Christmas - it's about a failed relationship. Only the phase "Last Christmas," when the relationship comes to a head, refers to the festive season. Despite this, it has become an annual Christmas standard, especially in the UK.
This was released as a charity record with its proceeds going to famine relief in Ethiopia. Apart from "Do They Know It's Christmas," which prevented it from reaching #1, "Last Christmas" is the biggest selling Christmas song in the UK. George Michael features on both songs.
This song should be Number 1. it's one of the first best Christmas songs of all time. Also the best song delivered by George Michael during his career in Wham!
My favorite song by George michael And also one of the best Top 5 material. Christmas songs I've heard in my entire life! it's simply a fantastic experience to listen beautiful and melodic music like this...
Last Christmas I Gave you my Heart- But the very Next Day you'll gave it Away! this year to Save me from Tears ... I give it To Someone special
Just the best song they made - classic pop
Classic Song Should be number 2 or 3 - mneilan
One of the biggest Radio Pop songs on 80's.
The best song from their best album
Andrew Ridgeley lived at home with his parents even after Wham! made it big, which isn't as lame as it sounds: they were on the road all the time, so it was easier than maintaining his own empty household (he and George Michael used a room in the house to make their demos). One day, Ridgeley needed a wake-up call, so he left a note for him mum on his door. He wrote, "Wake me up up," and realizing he duplicated a word, finished the sentence with "before you go go."
George Michael got a kick out of it and decided to use it as a song title. Michael put together a song called "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go," and it became Wham's first American hit.
Sure this song it's more than a simple numbered fourth4 of the list
This song should be Number #2 to me the most famous Wham! song of all time because its beautiful ''kids'' rhythm
One of the only songs who can compete againts Last Christmas for the 1st place, on the list.
In an interview with the Christmas 2009 issue of The Big Issue, Michael said of this song, that when he wrote it he knew he had arrived: "When I was 19, I wrote 'Freedom' - the original version - and I thought, 'I can't believe I've just done that!' I was absolutely thrilled. Because until then I had no real understanding of my abilities, but with 'Freedom,' I started to take myself seriously as a writer.
One of their best songs. Beautifully written and expressed! Love the line"Like a prisoner who has his own key..."
My favorite Wham! Song
Good grief! Don't you people know the difference between Wham! & George Michael? Freedom is a song George Michael recorded when he became a solo artist & is definitely NOT A WHAM! song!
I love this song, it ain't a big classic by wham! but is one of the bests
Why do this song doesn't it gets the credit it deserves? it's one of the most motivating and nicer George Michael songs apart from Careless Whisper. Rank this song at number 2 at least is one of the best songs ever.
I'm Your Man is a bad song, and it's higher than a decent song like Club Tropicana ... Really?
At that time it was a satire of the boom for cheap package holidays for younger, single people of a hedonistic nature - MatrixGuy
My personal favorite Wham song. The album this comes from, Fantastic, is their best work, this being the best in the album.
Much darker compared to the rest of their output, and that's why I love it!
It's the coolest WHAM! Song ever
My fave song ever!
Most advanced Wham! song in its time.
One of the best songs by wham! just pure genius lyrics adapted to reality...
This is definitely the best - RockStarr
Woah, this is not in the top,ten? - RockStarr
Michael's biographer Rob Jovanovic said the song is about "death by matrimony," which is in fact the last line of the chorus. It was written from experience, and described old school friends marrying and setting down roots while Michael and Ridgeley were still having fun. This was rather presumptuous as the two were not yet twenty years old when it was released, in any case, Michael spent much of the next few years struggling with his sexuality, and in April 1998, when he was thirty-five years old, he "outed" himself publicly as homosexual in an incident he "celebrated" in the song "Outside."
Best Wham! song, Hands Down!
Better than Badboys at least
Wham! a't his best!
Since my cousin recommended to me this song, I fall I love with it. - CedreticFomento
