Have you ever asked yourself what music could you listen to day and night, not like on and on again, but – let’s say – like if I would wake you up on a Monday night at 3 a.m. and put some music for you and you wouldn’t – let’s say – throw the pillow at me?
You would, most probably, anyway, but still. What would it be?
I’ve been asking myself this for some time now just to see if the answer would be the same. And it is. George Michael all the way.
What is the first image of him that comes to mind? Your mind. Fast, fast, fast. First!
The cross earring, the biker jacket and that hair. Or would you have said just “the cross earring”? No, of course not. The image flashed a couple of seconds ago and it was it all. It was Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou a.k.a. George Michael, born in London to a Greek father and an English mother.
Not to mention those aviators and that look! Hey, but that’s just me and “Father figure” is one of my all time favourite songs. Flamenco dancing emoji.
He was so into singing that he didn’t care about what he wore – or at least he pretended not to – and kept on wearing the same style (!) which, eventually, turned into iconic. It was his music first! It was him first! Yet, that kind of style can only be pulled off by someone who enjoys fashion. And George does for sure. He is the only one to have had 5 supermodels in one video alone and take the day of the shooting off. That’s right. ⬇️
“Freedom“! Directed by David Fincher.
He had to show up in “Too funky” (directed by Thierry Mugler), though, just to show to the world what Beyonce’s bodysuit will look like twenty years later.
“Faith” not only became one of his greatest hits, but also Giorgios witnessed the birth of the 501, God bless that day!
The next song is now playing in my background and it is the proof that style must be sustained by something else. A whole lot of “else”. “One more try“.
But then there he is in an all leather. “Fast love“.
And in an all white. “A different corner“.
No, you are “Amazing“, George!
And you sang with Whitney and that is that!
