PostSubject: SixthNation Vs. Wham!   Fri Nov 04, 2011 6:43 pm

Christmas is coming around the corner in a short while so that means that every single retail store and radio station in the universe will start playing cheezy Christmas songs at some point or another. One of the most evilest songs in the world is Last Christmas by Wham! It's been said to cause ear cancer among others.

So why not host a competition to not listen to it? Simple Rules as well:
  • If you survive 2011 (i.e. 23:59 31st December 2011, your time zone) then you win.
  • If you lose, you get Whammed!
  • Only the original song performed by Wham! covers are fine (that includes your wife and/or bad karaoke singers)
  • If you happen to hear any part of the song, no matter how long, you lose
  • Only the Audio counts. GIFs, images or even the official music video (muted) is fine
  • This thread is a neutral zone - no posting the official song here or providing links (covers are perfectly fine).
  • If you lose, post how, where and when you did. It might be entertaining :dopey:


Some tips on how to not lose:

  • Don't listen to the radio
  • Don't go out in public. If you have to, listen to your MP3 Player or iPod
  • Turn off the volume before clicking any links in the rest of the forum (hey, I didn't say you can't post it somewhere else [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.])
  • Do not (I repeat) DO NOT tell your friends, significant others, family etc that you can't listen to this song. They are all EVIL and will play it to you at the first opportunity (if they start singing it themselves, consider yourself lucky).


If you haven't heard the song before (tbh you will have in the past if you've gone to malls at Christmas time Laughing) I am posting the official music video. That's the only time you can listen to the official version without losing.

Merry Early Christmas, and good luck! Smile

Once you gaze upon the wonder that is George Michael's five o'clock shadow and get lost in it for hours on end you will be ! His butt is its own ecosystem.

Why is there a Christmas song-related thread in November? In my world, doing anything Christmas-related before 1 December is a crime. Evil or Very Mad

As punishment, I will try to trick you into listening to the song. I'm serious. You have brought misery to my life and now I will try to bring misery to yours. I will try to make you all lose.

Well you see in about a week retailers, radio stations, restaurants and television stations will start playing Christmas carols. In order to perfectly play Whammed you have to be aware of these things. Does your declaration of Wham war mean you're in ??

I am declaring war. Against you.

If I get you with the song, then I win. If you hear the song in your wandering outside the SN, then I'll point and laugh at you. If you get through to 2012 by avoiding my tricks and the song, then you win.

I declare war as of ten minutes ago.

That last sentence just made me lol so hard for some reason. I think because of its placement.


Evil plans, Evil plans, Evil plans, oh, and that was ten minutes ago.



The sad thing is, a few places around me were running Christmas Ads before Halloween.
Now is when I will point out how sad things are for America when Christmas is the only thing that keeps its economy running.
Christmas and service jobs.
I suppose the concept of Santa makes a little more sense now.


As far as the song in question, I think I have a good shot. In fact the preview vid in the OP is the first time I have heard that song in a very long time. Maybe even as far back as its release.


lolz at RR. (Its own ecosystem) Laughing

I don't send emails to forum members, and I find it way too hard to speak like that. Too much effort. >_>

As I said, I'll try to get you here on the SN. I'll have to be creative or somethin'.

Considering the fact that almost every Retail store and radio station will be playing Christmas Music, yes.

And it's more avoiding the song on radio/TV/in public than tricking others to listen to it. Either way - don't listen to the song Laughing

Do you mean "Wake me up before you go go" by Wham!? That's the one that starts with "Jitterbug".

Makes me want to go out and smash a copy of Karma Chameleon by Culture Club.

I'm so in for this, but good luck getting me to listen to it, I almost NEVER listen to the radio anymore, just need to make sure that I watch the music video (the one that is posted on here) so that that way I know what it sounds like, but just watch it be like me watching one of the abc family Christmas specials and bam its on a commercial

Welp the stores have started putting up the decorations and Christmas music is playing. I will no longer be walking through the town with my hearing aids on.
