"Club Fantastic Megamix" was a single released by Wham! in 1983, and was the last single release for the duo on Innervision Records. It was approved by Mark Dean, the manager of Innvervision Records.[1] The single was released three months after Wham! had begun proceedings to leave the label, and was disapproved of by George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley. The single, which consisted of a mix of the tracks "A Ray of Sunshine", "Love Machine", and "Come On" off the album Fantastic, reached number 15 on the UK Singles Chart.

The only reason why the Club Fantastic Megamix was able to be released was because the songs had already been released. Prior to a song being released a publisher has the right to grant the first license of a tune of which he holds the copyright.[1] Because those three tracks had already been released into the public domain, they were unable to do anything about preventing the release.
