George Michael- underrated?


Do you think the guy gets his due? Tough that he was fairly pop during the hair band then grunge years. Great songs

Careless whisper- maybe my favorite guilty pleasure song
Father figure
Faith
Freedom
I want your sex

These 3 would be in a list of my 100 favorite songs. I think he's slightly underrated.

He got his due in the 80s, and although he was in the middle of hair bands, he was as big of a pop star as any back then...

I saw a show on him in the studio years ago. The ear he has for sounds is amazing. He's as good of a producer as he is performer/writer.

He's got good stuff:
Careless Whisper
Kissing A Fool
Knew You Were Waiting
A Different Corner
Praying For Time
Freedom (Wham)
Music From The Edge Of Heaven (Wham)

Michael NEVER got the musical credit he deserved because he had such a carefully-crafted MTV pop-persona. But the guy had sick pipes, knew a melody and put together some of the most sophisticated pop stuff of that era. And sadly, a few real lame tunes that made me want to stick my head in an oven. I'm a fan, much more restrospectively, than at the time. Father Figure KILLS.

He is a really good singer/performer. I don't consider him underrated.

Great voice. Getting busted in in Beverly Hills didn't help his image but he don't give a frick.

Came home for lunch on day in the mid 80's and our housekeeper was watching MTV...."I Want Your Sex" was playing. She just looked at me and said "Damn, that's the best lookin white man I ever saw".

Girls in the 80's didn't even fathom the possibility of him being gay, which was weird, taking into account Wham's video content.

George Micheal - Fast Love

One of his "newer" tracks. Really like it, very catchy.

Actually sounds very similar to Soul Decision's - Ooh It's Kinda Crazy.

And the man was a master of pop songs.

I think him being a super nasty gay bastard made too many folks cringe every time he was on the radio . Trolling around picking up boys at the park and sucking dicks in airport urinals will do that for you

That sais, yes he can sing his arse off
