Forget your Whamageddon challenges, sometimes you just need to state the obvious and embrace the classic. Wham!’s Last Christmas is the best song for the season. George Michael, A Linn Drum, a Roland synth, requisite sleigh bells and melancholy. It’s the ultimate sad banger.
And now, the song’s video has been remastered and uploaded in 4K on Youtube.
The song was released 35 YEARS AGO.
