Wham!’s “Last Christmas” tops the charts after 36 years

“Last Christmas” by Wham! has topped the charts 36 years after being released.

The song has been streamed more than nine million times in the last week – knocking LadBaby’s comic song “Don’t Stop Me Eating” off the top spot.

George Michael’s family took to Twitter to express their delight.


They posted: “We’re proud to say that Last Christmas by Wham! is officially number 1 in the UK @officialcharts this week for the first time!

“It’s been an incredible 36 years since the track was first released in 1984 and we want to say a huge thank you to each and every one of you.”

The romantic video of the song has been seen nearly 700,000,000 times.

Wham! star Andrew Ridgely said on Instagram:

“I am delighted, somewhat amazed & profoundly pleased that WHAM!’s iconic Christmas classic Last Christmas has finally achieved the accolade of becoming a No 1.

“It’s a fitting tribute 2 George’s song writing genius and 1 of which he would’ve been immensely proud & utterly thrilled.”

The song – and its captivating video – made number two in the charts when first released.

It was held off the top by Band Aid’s “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”.
