Božić 2016. za mnoge fanove pop glazbe nije bio onakav kakav bi trebao biti. U krugu obitelji, u toplom domu, ukusnom jelu i piću, razgovorima i druženjima – sve to nabrojano je pokvarila neočekivana i nevjerojatna vijest britanskih medija da je George Michael, pop ikona preminuo u 53. godini života u svom domu u Oxforshireu. Pop superstar koji je u karijeri prodao 100 milijuna nosača zvuka umro je mirno, a u njegovoj smrti nema sumnjivih okolnosti, potvrđeno je iz policijskih izvora.”S velikom tugom potvrđujemo da je naš voljeni sin, brat i prijatelj George preminuo mirno u svojem domu tijekom božićnog razdoblja. Njegova obitelj moli za poštivanje privatnosti u ovim emocionalno teškim trenucima”, objavio je pjevačev publicist. Trebalo je čak tri mjeseca da istraga pokaže od čega je Michael točno umro i na kraju su zaključili da je umro prirodnom smrću – bolovao je od kardiomiopatije, miokarditisa (bolest mišićnog sloja srca), a imao je problema i s jetrom, stoji u službenom priopćenju. Pokopan je tri mjeseca poslije smrti  na londonskom groblju Highgate. O glazbenoj ostavštini Georga Michaela moglo bi se pisati danima, a vjerojatno jedna od njegovih najizvođenijih pjesama na radio stanicama – pogotovo u vrijeme prije Božića (ali možete ju često čuti i u vrelini ljeta) je hit koji doslovce iskače iz paštete – Last Christmas.

Pjesma je objavljena u prosincu 1984. kao produkt rada grupe Wham, pop dua u kojem je uz Georgea Michaela bio i Andrew Ridgeley, a nalazi se na albumu Music from the Edge of Heaven. Videospot snimljen na švicarskom snijegu je na servisu You Tube pregledalo preko 415 milijuna ljudi – vrlo impozantna brojka. I danas ste sasvim sigurno negdje čuli ovu božićnu – besmrtnu pjesmu.

Last Chrismas

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special
Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special
Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance
But you still catch my eye
Tell me, baby
Do you recognize me?
Well, it’s been a year
It doesn’t surprise me
(Merry Christmas!) I wrapped it up and sent it
With a note saying, “I love you, ” I meant it
Now, I know what a fool I’ve been
But if you kissed me now
I know you’d fool me again
Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special
Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special
A crowded room, friends with tired eyes
I’m hiding from you, and your soul of ice
My god, I thought you were someone to rely on
Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on
A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man under cover but you tore me apart
Now, I’ve found a real love you’ll never fool me again
Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special
Last Christmas, I gave you my heart
But the very next day you gave it away
This year, to save me from tears
I’ll give it to someone special
A face on a lover with a fire in his heart
A man under cover but you tore him apart
Maybe next year I’ll give it to someone
I’ll give it to someone special
