What to know about "Last Christmas" by Wham!

Released in 1984 and written by George Michael, "Last Christmas" was a hit when it first came out and has continued to frequently re-enter the Billboard charts. In 2023, it reached the number-four position in the Billboard Hot 100. 

In 2023, USA Today listed "Last Christmas" as the third best Christmas song. "George Michael's yearning lyrics as he laments a fizzled romance might initially seem like a downer. But instead, the combination of a satiny melody and his eventual hopefulness keeps us cheering," the outlet wrote.

"Last Christmas" has since been covered by Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Backstreet Boys, Carly Rae Jepsen, Pentatonix,  Ashely Tisdale, Hillary Duff, and more.
