Christmas is here! Wham! – Last Christmas… Day 4
“Last Christmas I gave you my heart” so the song goes and memories, reflection, religious or just being with the one you love always create past moments to treasure especially at Christmas time so once again this is Christmas and what have we done, another year over and a new one to come. We reflect on what we have done and others are inspired by those who work so hard for charity to raise money for people around the world and who often have absolutely nothing to call their own! – whilst others reflect on how lucky they are to have friends and family around them and perhaps a little thought for those you have given your heart to in the past!
I have put together a small collection of ten of my own favourite songs and may be a bonus issue or two, and hope you like them. The music and the words are given below for your pleasure. This fourth one reflects past friends and romances – so you have no choice but to sing along! as follows:-
I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away.
To save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special.
Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance
But you still catch my eye.
Tell me, baby,
Do you recognize me?
It’s been a year,
It doesn’t surprise me
I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying, “I love you,”
I meant it
Now I know what a fool I’ve been.
But if you kissed me now
I know you’d fool me again.
Oh, oh, baby.
A crowded room,
Friends with tired eyes.
I’m hiding from you
And your soul of ice.
My god I thought you were someone to rely on.
Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on.
A face on a lover with a fire in his heart.
A man under cover but you tore me apart, ooh-hoo.
Now I’ve found a real love, you’ll never fool me again.
A face on a lover with a fire in his heart (I gave you my heart)
A man under cover but you tore him apart
Maybe next year I’ll give it to someone
I’ll give it to someone special.
“Last Christmas” is a song by British pop duo Wham!, released on Epic Records in 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.
Wham! had been a dominant force in the UK Singles Chart in 1984 and news that they were planning a Christmas single meant that a battle for the coveted Christmas #1 spot in the UK seemed set to be between Wham! and the year’s other big act, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, who had achieved a third #1 in early December with “The Power of Love”. The Band Aid project helmed by Bob Geldof, however, produced the #1 single “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”. Wham!’s offering peaked at #2 for much of the period, although George’s involvement in Band Aid meant that Wham! still had an input. Wham! subsequently topped the monies raised by Band Aid by donating all of their “Last Christmas/Everything She Wants” royalties to the Ethiopian famine appeal.
“Last Christmas” did make #1 in various other countries.[where?]
The single sold well over a million copies and became the biggest selling single in UK chart history not to reach #1. A year later, it was re-issued for Christmas again (this time without a billed flip-side) and got to #6. A second re-issue at Christmas 1986—by which time Wham! had split—stalled outside the top 40.
