In America it may have been released as a Wham song but in the U.K it was a solo release by George and I do this quiz based on the U.K top 40. I usually point out there will probably be discrepancies between U.K and U.S releases, titles and or artist names , just forgot this time I'll add that in now as I believe there is another song that had a different artist name in the U.S in this quiz.

Ah, yes! This old chestnut...

In America is was billed as 'Wham! Featuring George Michael', even though it was, to all intents and purposes, a George Michael solo effort...

(Mind you, you could say that most of Wham's output was a George Michael solo effort!)

(Ends waffling...)

Ridgeley got robed on that song.  It was one of only two Wham! songs he co-wrote, and George ends up getting top billing.  Guess Andrew really was the silent member ;D

I thought it might be "You Keep Me Hangin' On" by Kim Wilde. Interesting how one line can come from more than one song!
