OUGD603 Up Yer Sleeve - Research: Wham! - Live Brief (Brief Eight)

Wham! were an English musical duo formed by members George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley in 1981. They were briefly known in the US as Wham! UK duo to a naming conflict with an American band. Wham! sold more than 28 million records worldwide from 1982 to 1986.

'Club Tropicana' is a song released in 1983. It was written by George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley. The song was a mild departure from Wham!'s previous singles, which has been motivated by social or political issues. The song is satire of the boom for cheap package holidays for younger, single people of a hedonistic nature. It was specifically seen in the UK as a swipe at the very popular Club 18-30 scheme.
