Last Christmas. (RIP George Michael)
Hey--2016. We had Faith. We trusted you not to claim any more music superstars. But you got greedy again.
Music history's most grim-reaping year now has 80's fans reeling from the Christmas Day sudden death of George Michael.
The "Last Christmas" singer and Wham! legend succumbed to heart failure at age 53.
He may or may not have been your cup of tea, but this record-setting British artist helped define the 80's dance-pop era that swung across the pond, away from Michael Jackson and Madonna, and back to the second-wave Britpop movement that was it's early-'80's anchor.
Let's remember George with songs that capture him, and his era.
