BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984
“Everything She Wants” is a song by British pop duo Wham!, released in 1984 on Epic Records. In the UK and Europe the song was released on a double A-side with “Last Christmas”. It was written and produced by George Michael, one half of the duo.
Upon release, “Last Christmas” took the majority of the attention and airplay as it was appropriate in early December as Christmas approached. However, the presence of an equally-billed flip side meant that radio stations had something else to play once “Last Christmas” had lost its topicality.
The presence of the Band Aid project meant that the double A-side peaked at number two in the UK Singles Chart, although in the process it became the biggest selling record not to get to number one. However, in the USA, the song did reach the summit of the Billboard Hot 100, and became the third number-one song in a row from 1984’s Make It Big album.
Wham! would go on to have two more number-one hits in the UK before splitting at their height in 1986.
This Japanese 7″ pressing contains a special message from Wham! thanking their Japanese fans for their support. In Japan Wham! were wildly popular. This track is exlusive to this release.
