Back on October 9th, 2018 on our facebook page I asked everyone what they thought that about, about doing Christmas Music Videos this year. Unfortunately no one responded, but I thought now that the Christmas season is in full swing, why not.

"Last Christmas" is a song by English pop duo Wham!, released on Epic Records in December 1984, on a double A-side with "Everything She Wants". It was written and produced by George Michael, and has been covered by many artists since its original release.

The song was recorded in August 1984, at Advision Studios, London, England. George Michael had written, performed, produced and played every single instrument on the track. With a Linn 9000 drum machine, a Roland Juno-60 synth and sleigh bells, they began recording the song in the summer. The only person who was in the studio was engineer Chris Porter and two assistants. According to Porter, lyrically "you’ve got the happiness of the rhythm track, but against that you’ve got the sadness of the unrequited love".

The song reached number one in Slovenia and Sweden and number two in seven countries including Belgium, Netherlands, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Norway and United Kingdom. Wham! donated all of their royalties to the Ethiopian famine. [Wikipedia]
