Sunday Selfie: Last Christmas

Wow, it's almost Christmas and even Mum is starting to get into the festive spirit by playing some of her fave Christmas music. She thinks most Christmas songs are cheesy but she does like a few to get her in the festive mood. One of her all-time faves is Wham's "Last Christmas" and guess what, it's mine too now!

Ever since George Michael's passing last year on Christmas Day, Mum has been listening to all her old Wham and George Michael CDs as she was a big fan back in the day. I've said before that Mum loves most types of music and has eclectic taste, but I have to say I've never been that keen on the heavy metal and rock she tends to love. However, I have definitely fallen in love with George Michael's soothing velvety voice and I love listening to him while I nap. I love most of his songs! He was a good soul too, very kind and helped a lot of people and animals. He donated to charities anonymously (unlike most celebs who like to make a big song and dance about it).

So guess what I'm dreaming of in this frosty Christmassy selfie today (well, not quite a selfie I know because Mum took it). I am dreaming that in honour of George Michael I want this lovely song to be No.1 in the UK charts this Christmas. It would be great!
Sunday Selfie: Last Christmas
Athena is hoping her favourite Christmas song "Last Christmas" finally makes it to No.1
Mum tells me that "Last Christmas" was originally released in 1984 and never actually made it to No, 1 in the UK because Band Aid’s "Do They Know It’s Christmas" (another fav of Mum's) was released and took the top spot (all for a good cause). However, Wham's classic Christmas offering did make No.2.

There is now a campaign run by fans of George Michael to make Last Christmas the Christmas No 1 oF 2017. 

To download the track and help get it to No.1 in memory of George please see below.

Giving is way better than receiving, is what I tell the peep when I leave a half mouse to share MOL Of course I draw the line at sharing my nip and the double cream.... bar at Christmas when all are welcome. He will be missed, George Michael, by many folk and maybe a No.1 will serve his memory well and also help others too?

My human hasn't started in with any Christmas songs, but maybe it's just as well, since her favorite Christmas song is "Father Christmas" by the Kinks.

My all time favourite Christmas record is "I Believe in Father Christmas" by Greg Lake.

We hope the song makes it to No.1, it would be fitting since he passed away Christmas day. Athena, you look lovey curled up, sleeping. :)

George Michael was a complex and gifted singer and performer. He was a quiet giver who made a big difference.

No. 1 or not this year he is No. 1 in so many hearts.
