The 1984 Wham! classic Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go has been given the heavy metal treatment, thanks to a cover by record producer Leo Moracchioli which will wake you up from the deepest of sleeps.
Moracchioli plays all the instruments in his brutal version of Wham!’s pop mega-hit (below), which features a whole lot of finger clicks, huge riffs, double bass drum work, horns (and metal horns), a guitar solo and even a handheld vacuum solo, for some reason.
Basically, it does old mate George Michael proud, and it’s got us all like…
Moracchioli, who runs Frog Leap Studios in Norway, has previously recorded metal covers of songs like Lorde’s Royals, Sia’s Cheap Thrills and U2’s Vertigo. Watch his brutal Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go cover alongside the original, below, and prepare to be woken the fuck up.
