Saturday 9: Wake Me Up Before You Go Go (1984)
1) This song was inspired by a note WHAM! partner Andrew Ridgeley left for his parents. He accidentally wrote “go” twice. What was the last handwritten note you left for someone?
I text notes these days to be honest with you.
5) In 1990, Frank Sinatra famously gave George Michael advice. Ol’ Blue Eyes told the younger man to enjoy his fame, to remember all those lean nights traveling from gig to gig by bus and, now that he’s successful, “loosen up and swing, man.” Who last gave you advice? Did you take it?
7) Fansites tell us that George Michael’s favorite cereal was cornflakes. What breakfast cereals are currently in your kitchen?
8) In 1984, when “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” was popular, Murder, She Wrote premiered on CBS. Today it’s still seen in reruns all over the world. Are you a fan?
Nope. Not really.
