Wham!

Wham! sparked something of a pop revival in the mid-'80s and could arguably be held responsible for sparking off the boy band trend of the '90s. They were unashamedly pop, to the point of padding the front of their trousers for television appearances. At the heart, however, was a string of catchy singalong singles written by George Michael (born Georgios Kyrriacos Panayiotou in London to a Greek restauranting family).

George met Wham!'s other half, Andrew Ridgeley, at school in the London suburb of Bushey, and in 1979 they started performing together as part of the ska-based band the Executive. When that group dissolved, they wrote songs, made demos, and rushed into a recording contract with the equally eager independent label Innervision, scoring an instant hit with "Wham Rap!" (they thought that "wham" was the sound they made when Michael and Ridgeley performed together). In order to move to a recording contract with Sony label Epic, Wham! was forced to walk away from most of the royalties from their debut album, Fantastic. None of that mattered when their 1984 single, "Wake Me up Before You Go Go," became a worldwide hit, accompanied by a video of the pair cavorting in their sportswear. Almost immediately, George Michael started thinking of a solo career, and released "Careless Whisper," issued in the U.S. under George Michael of Wham!

Wham!'s end came suddenly two years later, in 1985, reputedly when the group's manager, Simon Napier-Bell (later to manage Take That), decided to sell a share of his management to a South African entertainment conglomerate. Supposedly, as part of a stand against South African politics, George Michael immediately announced Wham!'s breakup. They gave their farewell performance before a sold-out audience of 72,000 fans at London's Wembley Stadium.

George Michael comfortably stepped straight into his own highly successful solo performing and recording career. Andrew Ridgeley's post Wham! album, Son of Albert, sold poorly and produced just one minor hit, "Shake." ~ Ed Nimmervoll

Everything She Wants (Remix ) on Best Of The Best Gold: Wham! is emblematic of the 80's new wave moment as interpreted by George Michael.

Wham! is way better than I knew. Listen to Blue (Armed with Love) and Nothing Looks the Same in the Light. They sound the same but they are both so groovy and sexy. I've always been a George Michael fan but I sort of dismissed Wham! as being silly, but I'm educated now.

Bea, the careless whisper by a good friend was telling his partner that he was cheating. And it's not if your answer's kind it's ignorance is kind. Weird this song is 30 years old and people still don't know what it's about...lol

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed by the love of your life on the nearest Friday. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will be injured in two days (you won't die). Now you started reading so don't stop. Post this in at least 5 other songs in the next 143 minutes. When you're done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen. This is so scary it actually work

Message is don't be talking about the one you love behind their back as if they are just another person. Being two faced and backstabbing to the one you love. Even if the one you love explains to you and apologizes to you and makes up for it, the truth and the pain still exists and is something you face every day. It's like being unfaithful. Once that faith and trust goes out the window, so does the love forever.

Time can never mend
The careless whisper of a good friend
To the heart and mind
If your answer's kind
There is no comfort in the truth
Pain is all you will find
