Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou (George Michael) achieved fame in the duo Wham! in his native U.K. in 1982. Through 1986, he and his partner, Andrew Ridgeley, scored hit after hit in a variety of styles from rap to up-tempo pop to slow ballads. As songwriter and lead singer, Michael gradually overshadowed the group, and by the time they split, he was ready for a massively successful solo career. This began with the 1987 album Faith, which featured a series of chart-topping hit singles and sold more than seven million copies. That Michael had not achieved a similar critical success was evident...
Hi guys, I heard the news that George Michael had died this morning and I will be writing my favourite songs from him.
Wake Me Up Before You Go Go
I had always love this song and I heard it at a special Disney music video associating with this song, finally many years later I saw the actual music video of it. I could not get the song out of my head!
If I Told You That (with Whitney Houston)
Okay, when I first heard this song, it is another disco moment for me and I love Whitney Houston too. They have such great chemistry together especially in this song!
