Put aside what you know about George Michael’s troubled recent past, and take a moment to bask in the glory of “Everything She Wants,” Wham!’s bitter tale of the endless toil and heartache that come with catering to a materialistic lady. Fittingly, the video depicts showers of money, and an awkward shot of Michael and a woman’s manicured (read: self-absorbed!) hand.

That said, this is primarily a concert video, where the audience’s screams are audible and the ’80s shuffles embarrassing. But make no mistake: The whole thing really revolves around GM’s fierce model face, and the lion’s-mane-of-a-mullet that frames it ever so fluffily. Poor Other Guy in Wham. He’s just far too earnest to compete.

BONUS WIKIPEDIA FACT: “Although Michael bemoaned much of Wham!’s material as he began his solo career, “Everything She Wants” remained a song of which he was proud, and he continued to perform it in his shows. Furthermore, Michael remarked in an interview (to promote 25 Live tour) that “Everything She Wants” is his favourite Wham! song.”
