Video Flashback: Wham! UK

We love the early days of MTV, when George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley needed UK after their name, when Yaz was called Yazoo, when our expectations of celebrity behavior were a lot lower. Who knew that the adorable Greek immigrant’s son Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou would grow up to be a cottage pervert or that Andrew Ridgeley would grow up to be nobody?

Anyway, we loved their tight rolled up jeans, jackboots and leather. Mom didn’t love the line “This young gun says/Abortion pays.” We felt so edgy and we didn’t even know what ‘gay’ meant!
