THEN & NOW: ‘Club Tropicana’ – Wham

Summer ain’t over yet, cause Club Tropicana drinks are still free, nearly 40 years after they were first served up by Wham! The boys’ hit single from 1983 has just has a facelift courtesy of producer Drummar working with Andrew Ridgeley himself to produce a slice of 80’s Summer in 2022.

The new mix is known as the ‘Wonderland Redux’and it’s the first official remix of the song since the duo parted ways back in 1986 following their number one hit, “The Edge Of Heaven”.

“Club Tropicana” was the fifth and final single to be released from Wham’s debut album, “Fantastic”, in July 1983. It reached No.4 in the UK, becoming their fourth top ten hit as well as being a chart success across Europe. The song was accompanied by an iconic video shot in Ibiza and featured backing singers Dee C. Lee and Shirlie Holliman, later one half of Pepsi and Shirlie.
