Editor’s note: do not adjust your screen. Yes, we’re airing some of our (and some of your!) favourite song guilty pleasures in video form this Jubilee weekend. The bands were featuring are largely not the kind we write about here on TGTF, but we wanted to do something new and cool over this 4-day weekend. Come along for the crazy ride and enjoy.
Long before ‘Faith’ and when he got arrested for being indecent in a public loo, George Michael was one half of the squeaky clean Wham! The music video for ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go’ was just as big as the song, it seemed. The inexplicable ‘Choose life’ shirts, tropical coloured short shorts, the glow in the dark jumpers of the backing singers, Andrew Ridgeley’s crazy flapping hat…what’s not to love?
