About this deal

His cover of Nina Simone’s My Baby Just Cares For Me is melodic, frothy fun but the emotional heft of these orchestral reworkings is best seen in the wonderful A Different Corner and powerful Praying For Time with George altering the lyrics to “I sang 20 years and a day, but nothing changed/ The human race found some other guy and walked into the flames. The songs are arranged on two complementing discs: the slower, ballady productions are on the first disc ("for the heart"), and the more dancey, poppy numbers are on the second ("for the feet"). Twenty Five, released in 2006, was Michael's second greatest hits album, celebrating the 25th anniversary of his music career. It has spent over 200 weeks in the UK Charts, and is the 38th best-selling album of all time in the UK.

It also peaked at number one on the US Billboard 200 and was certified Diamond for sales of over 10 million copies. Amazing", "John and Elvis Are Dead", "Flawless (Go to the City)", "Shoot the Dog", "Roxanne", "An Easier Affair", "If I Told You That", "Waltz Away Dreaming" and "Somebody to Love". Mother’s Pride, a heart-wrenching ballad about those whose lives have been torn apart by military conflict struck a chord with those families affected by the Gulf War of 1990/91. on the Billboard 200 with 50,000 copies sold during the week of 28 November 1998, the next week it dropped to No. Michael cited Blige's record company president for pulling the track after Michael's arrest for committing a lewd act.George was a lifelong critic of social inequality and a philanthropist throughout his career) is especially pointed. Five long years in the making, the star’s fifth and final studio album of new material was an uncompromising affair. In 1993, Michael released his version of Somebody To Love, which was performed at The Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert with Queen. Secret Love (“My secret love’s no secret any more”) is, of course, dripping with meaning since George’s coming out but he doesn’t labour the point here, merely sounding joyous about it. With over 100 million records sold worldwide, he achieved numerous music awards throughout his 30-year career.

This double album (available in CD only) includes 14 songs "for the heart" and 15 songs "for the feet" and it's the first George Michael compilation that was released to celebrate his career from 1984 to 1998. com (also known as Esprit) has been the world's biggest and best seller of premium quality and top condition rare and vintage vinyl records, rare CD's and music memorabilia since 1985 - that's 39 years! I f one of Faith’s trump cards had been the provocative way it set out George’s stall as a sexed-up mature artist, Listen Without Prejudice Vol 1’s title alone was wilfully confrontational – an assured (and perhaps a little narked) dig at critics who still saw him as pop product.A well-chosen cover of Terence Trent D’Arby’s Let Her Down Easy is a beautiful wild card while a vocal showcase of Anthony Newley standard Feeling Good puts the bombast of Muse’s bloated take in the shade.

His debut solo album, "Faith," became one of the best-selling albums of all time, producing six top 5 singles in the United States. His version of Somebody To Love is quite extraordinary and a duet with Lisa Stansfield on These Are The Days Of Our Lives equally moving. This time, though, further stylistic shifts are added to the mix including the social commentary anthemics of John Lennon on the beautiful, stately opener Praying For Time. a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z aa ab ac ad ae af "British certifications – George Michael". Careless Whisper" is the single version, " A Different Corner" was remixed for this compilation, "Fantasy" is the original 1990 version (not the "Fantasy 98" remix which appeared on the 'Outside' singles in the same period).Equally hard-hitting is Look At Your Hands, a bluesy song about domestic violence dating back to George’s Wham! Its funky second half doffs its hat to horn-infused Philly Soul and even includes a brief Italo House-style breakdown. and Shoot The Dog – threading The Human League’s Love Action (I Believe In Love) the latter manages to be a thoroughgoing critique of his own weaknesses set against well-aimed political pot-shots at Tony Blair and George W Bush. The song was a humorous look at his arrest shortly before the release of the album for soliciting a policeman in a public restroom. The track’s story of two Americans, a prostitute and 25-year-old Jimmy who embarks on a shooting spree, remains sadly pertinent more than 30 years later.

Essentially a showcase for George’s abilities as a singer and arranger, these 10 jazz songs range from straightforward covers to more intriguing refits of, among others, The Police, Roberta Flack and U2 side project Passengers. which peaked at number one in the UK, number two in the US, and was certified 4× Platinum by the BPI. But more fundamental to the project is the shadow cast by George’s late partner Anselmo Feleppa who died in 1993. Ladies And Gentlemen charts this journey, from his duets with pop elite such as Aretha Franklin ("I Knew You Waiting (For Me)") and Elton John ("Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me"), to dance floor classics such as "Too Funky" and "Fastlove" and bleak, evocative numbers such as "Jesus To A Child" and "A Different Corner". The video takes a swipe at Michael's arrest for engaging in a lewd act, satirizing police surveillance.Promotional music videos: "Outside", "Fastlove", "Spinning the Wheel", "Freedom 90", "Killer/Papa was a Rollin' Stone", "Too Funky", "Faith", "I Want Your Sex" (Part II), "Jesus to a Child", "Waltz Away Dreaming", "Father Figure", "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me", "Kissing a Fool", "I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)" (with Aretha Franklin), "Somebody to Love" (live), "Monkey", "One More Try" "Star People '97", "I Can't Make You Love Me", "A Different Corner", "You Have Been Loved" and "Careless Whisper". Equally impressive is the recasting of I Remember You – did George know the track from the movie The Fleet’s In sung by Dorothy Lamour or the cheesy 1960s pop song by yodelling Aussie Frank Ifield?
