I haven’t had a yo-yo in a long fucking time. Think I might pick myself up one next time I go to the store.

I also have no idea how to jitterbug.

George Michael ruled the airwaves in the 80’s, with a string of lame ass songs. This one is the cream of the crop, in my opinion.

I remember being in my favorite uncles car when this song first came out. He turned the volume up and pronounced that he loved it, and I was thrilled, because so did I. We sang it together, and even though it is undoubtedly lame, it still holds a place in my heart.

This one is for you, Uncle Jerry.

Now that I’m done being sentimental and all that happy shit, let’s examine why George decided it was a good idea to wear a pair of brightly colored nuthugger shorts in his music video.

It was the early 80’s. Men’s upper thighs were in high demand. All you have to do is watch an episode of Three’s Company to prove that.

That’s all I’ve got.

“Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” by Wham!

Jitterbug [4X]You put the boom-boom into my heart
You send my soul sky high when your lovin’ starts
Jitterbug into my brain
Goes a bang-bang-bang ’til my feet do the same
But something’s bugging you
Something ain’t right
My best friend told me what you did last night
Left me sleepin’ in my bed
I was dreaming, but I should have been with you instead.Wake me up before you go-go
Don’t leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
I don’t want to miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go-go
‘Cause I’m not plannin’ on going solo
Wake me up before you go-go
Take me dancing tonight
I wanna hit that high (yeah, yeah)You take the grey skies out of my way
You make the sun shine brighter than Doris Day
Turned a bright spark into a flame
My beats per minute never been the same’Cause you’re my lady, I’m your fool
It makes me crazy when you act so cruel
Come on, baby, let’s not fight
We’ll go dancing, everything will be all rightWake me up before you go-go
Don’t leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
I don’t want to miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go-go
‘Cause I’m not plannin” on going solo
Wake me up before you go-go
Take me dancing tonight
I wanna hit that high (yeah, yeah, baby)(Jitterbug)
(Jitterbug)

Cuddle up, baby, move in tight
We’ll go dancing tomorrow night
It’s cold out there, but it’s warm in bed
They can dance, we’ll stay home instead

(Jitterbug)

Wake me up before you go-go
Don’t leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
I don’t want to miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go-go
‘Cause I’m not plannin’ on going solo
Wake me up before you go-go
Take me dancing tonight
Wake me up before you go-go, don’t you dare to leave me hanging on like a
yo-yo
Take me dancing

(Boom-boom-boom)
