Last Christmas, I gave you my heart..

We are nearing the anniversary of the passing of George Michael, one part of the famous pop duo Wham! alongside his singing partner Andrew Ridgeley. While Last Christmas has very little to do with the holiday itself, the song is religiously played every year as soon as decorations come out. Since 2010, GTPlanet has been running the annual 'contest' where the aim of the game is to avoid the song during November and December.

Happy Whamming!


General Rules and Guidelines:
  • Survive 2018 (i.e. 23:59.59 in your time zone) without listening to Last Christmas by Wham!
  • Post in this thread before December 1 to show your interest in being a 'participating member'.
  • Only the original song performed by George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley counts. Remixes such as Whamnam Style or covers like the ones by Taylor Swift or Glee do not.
  • Hearing any part of the song counts as a whamming. If you are unsure of the song's origin, keep listening to find out if it's a Wham! version or a cover/remix.
  • GIFs, still images or muted video do not count.
  • When you hear the music, consider yourself whammed, out of the competition and on the Whammed User Log.
  • The Whammed User Log (WUL) is the younger, festive version of the BUL. It tells us when and how a member got Whammed. If you get whammed, post here and tag myself (@TJ13 ) so I get a notification and can promptly update it.
  • Do not post any links to the song in this thread without sufficient warning. This place is a safe haven.
  • While the rest of the site is free reign, keep in mind the site's rules regarding misleading (next bullet point)
  • You will not knowingly post any material that is false, misleading, or inaccurate.
  • If you play the link in the OP with any intention outside of refreshing your memory (i.e.playing it over Skype or PSN), you will be whammed if you hear it.
Some tips to avoid the song:
  • Do not trust anyone.
  • Avoid shopping at department stores, clothing stores, supermarkets - anything that may have a radio playing.
  • If you must step outside, consider bringing noise-isolating earphones and play loud music on them to avoid any other songs.
  • Do not trust anyone.
  • Have your computer defaulted to 'mute' and make sure that your volume is off while opening any links.
  • Do not talk to any other GTPers using Skype, Facebook, Xbox Live or PlayStation Network. We are all evil and cannot be trusted, especially @Jordon.
If you haven't yet head the song, just click on the video below to watch it before avoiding it until next year.

Good luck everyone.

You'll need it.

I usually start the thread around the start of November.

Having said that, we've had GTPvW for eight years and (with the generous help of @TB ) I've hosted seven of them. I'm happy to pass on the torch if you're up for it, @TJ13. 👍

I have no problem with someone else running the show. My problem lies in the (assumed) fact that it doesn't sound like TJ asked if 1) you were going to run it or 2) if he could. He appears to have just assumed the mantle.

Well last year I think @Daniel was struggling to keep up and needed the help of @TB more and more and I think even mentioned it. So I figured that I would take it for this year and to start it early.
As I already heard Christmas music last few days. :banghead:
So I will take it this year @Daniel and let the whamming begin.

As someone who has accepted Deadpool as their lord and savior, I can no longer participate in this game as it is sacrilegious to vilify the psalms of Saint George Michael.

Never ever heard Wham a single time here. Perhaps this year the row will end.

I would like to take a part, please. Count me in.

I'm not going to the UK for the winter holidays this year. Definitely got this in the bag.

Prove me wrong.
(Just a fancy way of saying I'm in it once 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

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


:D
