2012 Christmas countdown in songs: 17 – Last Christmas
Last Christmas – Wham!
Last Christmas is a standout track on the long list of Christmas-themed records. Written by George Michael and released in 1984, Last Christmas is a song about lost love and heartbreak that made a Christmas hit with only two words referring to this festive period. In the video – set at a ski resort – George Michael, his bandmate Andrew Ridgeley, and a group of friends spread the Christmas spirit by putting up some Christmas decorations, engaging in snow fights and having Christmas dinner together. The highest selling single ever without topping the UK charts has since been covered by countless artists, which proves there is nothing like an old classic.
