Next year will mark the thirtieth anniversary of the Final by Wham!
When I was a kid I was obsessed by Wham! Make it Big was totally my favourite album for a couple of months. I squeezed it into my favourites somewhere between Colour by Numbers and Like a Virgin. One could say it was an eventful and inspiring period for me that would have later repercussions, LOL!
Because we're all about nostalgia, there's talk that there's a Wham! documentary in the works that will come out next year and that will document their rise and fall. I hope it's full of old footage and not some boring BBC documentary where everyone is wrinkled and grey haired and reminiscing about the good old days. I want original source material, shoulder pads, speedos and bad perms!
But seriously, the eighties were super brilliant. In Australia we had a music show on every Sunday night called Countdown. Man I loved that show! And they'd count down the top ten towards the end of each episode. Tenterhooks!!!
And in the spirit of nostalgia- check out this Top Ten countdown from 30 years ago this week. 1985 was like one of the best ever years for pop music!
And wait for the comments about a film that you just have to see after they count down the top 10 singles in Aus for that week. Amazing! From here.
