Wham! Special

azebz 2022/12/25

Wham! was a British pop duo formed in 1981 by George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley. The band's sound was heavily influenced by dance-pop and new wave music, which were popular genres in the early 1980s.

Wham! released their debut album, "Fantastic," in 1983, which included hit singles like "Young Guns (Go for It)," "Wham Rap! (Enjoy What You Do)," and "Club Tropicana." The album was a commercial success, reaching number one on the UK Albums Chart.

The band's second album, "Make It Big," was released in 1984 and became an international success. It included hit singles such as "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go," "Freedom," and "Careless Whisper." The latter song, which was written and performed by George Michael alone, became a massive hit worldwide and is now considered a classic of its era.

In addition to their music, Wham! also made an impact on fashion and style in the 1980s. They were known for their colorful clothing, trendy hairstyles, and energetic dance moves. Their performances often featured elaborate sets and choreography that helped establish them as one of the most popular acts of the decade.

Unfortunately, Wham! didn't last long as a group. George Michael left the band in 1986 to pursue solo career that would prove to be even more successful than his time with Wham!. Ridgeley attempted to continue on his own but failed to achieve the same level of success.

Despite their short career together, however, Wham! remains an important part of pop music history. Their catchy tunes and upbeat energy captured the spirit of their time have continued to resonate with fans around the world for decades since.
