Wham!'s "Last Christmas" Video Is a Masterpiece
Wham! released this Christmas classic in 1984 as double A-side single with "Everything She Wants" and, as fate would have it, they were robbed of the #1 spot on the UK chart by another biggie: "Do They Know It's Christmas?" The song peaked at #2 and now holds the distinction of being the biggest selling UK single that never reached #1. To show their magnanimity, the boys donated all their royalties to the same Ethiopian charity. The video follows a fashionable group up into the mountains where they celebrate the holidays. One of the lovely ladies keeps exchanging glances with George and -- via the song's lyrics and a flashback -- we see that Andrew is now wearing the diamond brooch that Michael gave her last Christmas.
