KEZK Video of the Day: Wham! “Last Christmas”
The Christmas season continues here at KEZK, and we’ll send you into the weekend with one of our Christmas favorites as today’s Video of the Day.
[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]George Michael[/lastfm] wrote Last Christmas while he was working as half of the British pop-duo [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Wham![/lastfm] While the song remains one of the most popular Christmas themed pop songs ever released, a freak occurrence of timing kept the song out of the UK’s coveted number one spot during the Christmas season.
Last Christmas happened to be released the same year as Do They Know It’s Christmas, the single produced by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Band-Aid[/lastfm], the charity supergroup formed to raise awareness and money for an ongoing famine in Ethiopia. While Wham! didn’t get the number one single that season, they weren’t completely left out in the cold; George Michael worked with the Band-Aid group to record Do They Know It’s Christmas.
