Wham! was a duo that was loved by all, but their song “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” was the track that opened them up to a US audience.
One of the greatest duos of the eighties undeniably has to be Wham! Their hit “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” was an instant dance-pop sensation, arriving in 1983 as George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley’s first number one hit.
George Michael made a lasting impact on energetic pop music, infusing the best aspects of the fifties and sixties in an uptempo song that gets you grooving.
His hit was actually inspired by a note that Ridgeley wrote for his parents. His partner accidentally wrote the word “go” down twice, inspiring this catchy chart-topper.
