WHAM!

What time is it?!!  It’s time for Jamesy’s Motivational Music Monday!  It’s time to search those playlists and post what floats your boat!!  One day James will actually create the linky link thing, but in the meantime, put your video link in the comment section on his site so we can all see what makes you happy, gets you running or walking, or just plain puts a spring in your step!

When James told me he was going to post a rap song (you have to visit his site to actually see what rapper gets that metal head out and running), there was one song that came to my mind instantly. Now, most of you know that Buble is my boy; however, back in the eighties, George Michael was above and beyond my favorite of favorites.

Like most American kids/tweens/teenagers, I watched American Bandstand and Soul Train every Saturday morning (after Bugs Bunny, of course), and this is where I first saw Wham!  They performed this song (Wham Rap!), they were dressed exactly how they were dressed in the video, and they even danced the same way.  Ahhh, such entertainment!  🙂

This song is full of energy and still gets my blood pumping and my legs moving!  It’s nice that not everything changes.  Watch the video.  If you know the song, see if it doesn’t bring a smile to your face after all these years.  And if you don’t know it, I would still bet the video puts a smile on your face… if for no other reason than how fabulous the clothes and hair were back then! (George is sporting a tail, hehe)  Enjoy!!

    Full confession: I had that first Wham! album on cassette, and I WORE it OUT, mainly because of the Wham Rap, but the whole thing was pretty decent, in that 80s peppy way. Completely useless trivia: George and Andrew had to add the “!” to the name of their group because there was another band at the time also called Wham, and they had to make a distinction…

      Love the totally useless trivia!! I actually didn’t know that, and I thought I knew everything about those two! And yes, I confess… I bought 2 or 3 replacement cassettes myself, haha! So I totally get it! (And now I’m totally singing Bad Boys in my head…
      Bad boys, stick together, ne-ver sad boys, do do do dooto, do dooto…
      go ahead, you can sing along, hehe)

      Ahh yes, another oldie but goody! It may be out of season, but it’s never the wrong time to watch Wham, hehe! This is after the boys really evolved into their mega stardom. Love it, thank you for sharing it! It’s always fun to meet fellow Wham fans!! 😀
