    I survived driving in a 2018 Chevrolet Volt, with Christmas music blaring from the car, an RV in front of me and the convoy I followed and strategically placed speakers in all of downtown unscathed and Wham!-free.

    I am immortal.

    Can't tell if salt or jealousy.

    Either way, at least I lasted longer than you did :sly:

    I had some rather flamboyant Wham come on through "that" speaker earlier. Not George, but eerie as it was the only song, not one before and not one after it.

    The niece-in-law was sitting at the dining room table sewing and listening to music.

    Christmas music.

    We might have agreed that she could stay with us for four years but after 6 months, I think it's time for her to go.

    I didn't enter this year and it's a good job too; I'd have been out by yesterday already. Some music channel on the TV played it while we were putting our tree up.

    Streaming is killing the singles chart here in the UK. I'm just listening to the chart update, and there are 3 Christmas songs in the Top 10 this week - Fairytale of New York, Last Christmas and All I Want For Christmas Is You (and I haven't heard the top 2 yet).

    That's not really the point I was trying to make. Basically Last Christmas is closing in on the top of the charts for anyone who likes to listen to the chart show.

    Survived Last Year but couldn't this year.

    Whammed myself with my damn Spotify playlist from last year. Playing songs isn't what it used to be....

    It was very good of you to look after her but you have to look after yourself first.

    Heard Christmas music in the house for the first time this year. Thankfully the only Christmas music we have is Mannheim Steamroller and Trans-Siberian Orchestra...

    So far I've been cover-whammed on Black Friday and Mariah'd yesterday. Though radio stations have started spamming Christmas music earlier this year...

    Got in the car after school, turned on the radio. Boom. Christmas music add. Only heard 2 seconds of Mariah before I changed the station.

    Haven't had much time to go through the thread recently. I've updated the lists now. :tup:

    Interestingly, we're not the only ones to be playing this game. In addition to RaceDepartment (thanks to @Jimlaad43 ;) ), another group is also doing the largely same game using the name Whamageddon. Quite a few people tweeting about it and ascending to 'Whamhalla' afterwards.

    Wasn't GTP vs. Wham based on a similar game from another board anyway? I wonder if Whamageddon had any... inspiration.

    TBF, I wasn't the person who started RaceDepartment vs Wham. It had been going one year before I took it over kept it going.

    My lovely co-workers are hellbent on streaming xmas music on the office TV. I'm sure I'm doomed at some point.

    Although streaming music through the TV is better than the alternative, which is streaming Netflix to various Xmas shows. Yesterday we had something called the "Christmas Prince" playing.

    I had no idea this was an actual thing outside GTP.

    Welp, it finally happened. :ouch:

    Today, at 4:15 PM, while cleaning up the school I work at, I Vic Reigns was subjected to the worst of sounds one could possibly hear at this time of year.

    The sounds of a song about someone giving someone else their heart the previous christmas, only to find on boxing day that same person gave it away, the sounds of a song which was created by a man named George Michael and the group known as Wham!.

    Upon hearing said song, A curse was slipped in a moment of silence as my 3 year surviving streak was ended. :censored:

    So effective immediately, I request @Daniel or @TB to add me to the list of people who have also sadly succumbed to the sounds of Last Christmas this year so far. :scared:

    Yours sincerely

    Vic Reign93

    That's a bit of a cop-out.

    Not even Christmas.
    Said the 24th.
    So they could all get whammed on the 25th and would say "They won"
