Populair duo bestaande uit George Michael en Andrew Ridgeley. Opgericht in 1981 en tot 1986 enorm succesvol.

In 1982 scoren ze in de Top 40 hun eerste hit met Young Guns (Go For It). Hierna volgt een reeks van vele hits waarvan de singles Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go en The Edge Of Heaven de top van de Top 40 halen. In 1984 scoort George solo met de single Careless Whisper. In 1986 bereikt ook A Different Corner de top van de hitparade. De single Last Christmas, die in 1984 verschijnt, is een van de best verkochte kerstplaten en is ieder jaar tijdens de kerstperiode veel te horen.

In 1986 maakt de band bekend te stoppen op het hoogtepunt en geeft een spetterend afscheidsconcert in het Wembleystadion in Londen. Andrew en George gaan beiden solo verder, maar alleen George is succesvol geworden.

Songtekst

Hey sucker
(What the hell's got into you?)
Hey sucker
(Now there's nothing you can do)

Well I hadn't seen your face around town awhile
So I greeted you, with a knowing smile
When I saw that girl upon your arm
I knew she won your heart with a fatal charm
I said "Soul boy, let's hit the town"
I said "Hey boy, what's with the frown?"
But in return, all you could say was
"Hi George, meet my fiancee"

Young guns, having some fun crazy ladies keep 'em on the run
Wise guys realize there's danger in emotional ties
See me, single and free no tears, no fears, what I want to be
One, two, take a look at you death by matrimony

Hey sucker
(What the hell's got into you?)
Hey sucker
(Now there's nothing you can do.)

A married man, you're out of your head
Sleepless nights, on an H.P. bed
A daddy by the time you're twenty-one
If your happy with a nappy then you're in for fun
But you're here and you're there
Well there's guys like you just everywhere
Looking back on the good old days?
Well this young gun says caution pays

Young guns, having some fun crazy ladies keep 'em on the run
Wise guys realize there's danger in emotional ties
See me, single and free no tears, no fears, what I want to be
One, two, take a look at you death by matrimony

I remember when he such fun and everything was fine
I remember when we use to have a good time, partners in crime
Tell me that's all in the past and I will gladly walk away
Tell me that you're happy now, turning my back nothing to say

"Hey tell this jerk to take a hike
There's somethin' 'bout that boy I don't like"
"Well sugar he don't mean the things he said"
"Just get him outta my way, 'cause I'm seeing red
We got plans to make, we got things to buy
And you're wasting time on some creepy guy"
"Hey shut up chick, that's a friend of mine
Just watch your mouth babe, you're out of line"

Get back hands off go for it
Get back hands off
Get back hands off go for it
Get back hands off
Get back hands off go for it
Get back hands off
Get back hands off go for it
Get back hands off

Young guns, having some fun crazy ladies keep 'em on the run
Wise guys realize there's danger in emotional ties
See me, single and free no tears, no fears, what I want to be
One, two, take a look at you death by matrimony
