Wham! – Last Christmas [video]
“Last Christmas” is a song by British pop duo Wham!, released on Epic Records in 1984, on a double A-side with “Everything She Wants“. It was written by George Michael, one half of the duo. The song has been covered by many artists throughout the years.
The video to “Last Christmas” shows George and partner Andrew Ridgeley accompanying girlfriends to see friends at an unspecified ski resort – although the cable-car that can be seen in two shots is from Saas-Fee, Switzerland. It becomes clear early on that the character of Andrew’s girlfriend had previously been in a relationship with George, and that the song is aimed at her. The video also featured the duo’s erstwhile backing singers Pepsi and Shirlie and Spandau Ballet bassist Martin Kemp, the boyfriend and future husband of Shirlie Holliman.
