Somehow, I still find myself enjoying this
This song is particularly amazing:
That sounds like Talk Talk meets Bon Iver
Te vocoder or auto tune is annoying.
and Freedom (the Wham! one) isn't too bad either
Fastlove is fucking amazing.
Massive floor filler.
myself and a bunch of friends went out for a night, i got knocked back from the club we were heading to as i was a tad fucked in. Anyway being the sport i was/am i told them to go in and that i'd just head back to the flat.
Fast forward a few hours and my friends piled back to the flat to find me with my headphones on lying face down behind the sofa with george michael blaring into my ears, i stood up, composed myself and with the earphones still on and music blaring i proclained 'george michael is a genius!'
This came as a surprise to most in the room and i get reminded of it often, and while i don't think he is a genius i think he's a fucking good songwriter!
He's my favourite member of the Bluthe family
Still think 'Freedom 90' is a great song.
Its all about the saxophone, but still.
Wham! were the first band I ever got into.
can't imagine why you'd care, but now you know.
Were so good in a Pop sense that they almost had proper street cred. Especially the D.H.S.S. chanting 'Bad Boys'. Then I heard New Order and it was game over.
and with such intensity as at his comeback show in Manchester during Careless Whisper after 20+ years away from gigging; folk sang it like their life depended on it.

He's the kind of artist that Greatest Hits are just made for.
have got to be among the finest pieces of pop music of the last 20 years.
His best of gets regular play on road trips.
Too funky, Faith, Fast love, Outside, Spinning the wheel... all great. Done some brilliant duets too and much of Older still sounds good.
The singles that largely bombed after his comeback were really interesting too. The anti-war one was hit and miss but Freeak! is genuinely one of my favourite pop songs ever. "I think I need a re-booty!"
Spinning The Wheel is excellent. Really enjoy that Mary J. Blige duet off his best of as well.
Gonna go listen to George Michael for the rest of the evening now.
Oh yeah and As. Good shout pn.
I GUESS THE HUNGRY JUST CAN'T SEE
ONE OF THESE DAYS YOU'RE GONNA BRING SOME HOME TO ME
