Club Tropicana was released in 1983 by the classic 80's duo Wham! It was actually written in 1981 in Andrew Ridgeley's living room, before the band or band name had been fully established, and was the second Wham! song they came up with after the initial Wham Rap!
The initial song inspiration came from their excitement over the glamour and escapism of the then-burgeoning New Romantic club scene. The song was a mild departure from Wham!'s previous singles, which had all been motivated by social or political issues. 'Club Tropicana', however, was a satire of the boom for cheap package holidays for younger, single people of a hedonistic nature. It was specifically seen in the UK as a swipe at the very popular Club 18-30 scheme.
