Mesmerizing Words By George Michael
“Only Time Will Set You Free, Just Like Me”
He had his heart broken ‘Last Christmas’ but he had ‘Faith’ and wished for ‘Somebody To Love.’ His sensual voice coupled with alluring lyrics will never fail to touch our hearts. This British singer-songwriter reigned in the 80’s and 90’s and till date we tune in to his songs.
Unfortunately, this talented pop star “George Micheal” has left this world on Sunday, December 25 at the age of 53 and is no longer among us. He started his career in duo band “Wham” along with Andrew Ridgeley in 1981. His songs have not just topped the charts but captured our heart as well.
He left us too soon. Here are his best words from the time of “Wham” as well as his long solo career that will still remain with us.
1) “I’m surprised that I’ve survived my own dysfunction, really”
Yes, and we should do.
“Tainted hearts Heal with time Shoot bad love So we can stop the beating..” (Papa was a rolling stone)
2) “I define my sexuality in terms of the people that I love.”
A bold statement to remind us we don’t choose sexuality. Rather it’s the heart, whoever it falls for.
“Can anybody find me somebody to love?
Each morning I get up, I die a little
Can barely stand on my feet
Take a look in the mirror and cry
Lord whatcha doin’ to me?..” (Somebody To Love feat. Queen)
3) “There’s no comfort in the truth, pain is all you’ll find.”
Truth is always bitter we know.
“Last Christmas, I gave you my heart But the very next day, you gave it away This year, to save me from tears I’ll give it to someone special..” (Last Christmas: Wham)
4) “I still believe that music is one of the greatest gifts that God gave to man. ”
And he has proved it. Music has the power to change, to make us believe and to really make us happy.
“I won’t let you down
I will not give you up
Gotta have some faith in the sound
It’s the one good thing that I’ve got
I won’t let you down…” (Freedom ’90)
5) “Everything was going my way. I was happily marching into the history books. Then it all just fell apart.”
‘Life’ as we know it, is not perfect.
“Sometimes I Get The Feelin’ I was back in the old days – long ago When we were kids, when we were young Things seemed so perfect – you know?..” (These Are The Days Of Our Lives feat. Queen)
6) “The whole business is built on ego, vanity, self-satisfaction, and it’s total crap to pretend it’s not.”
Yes, own it like a boss.
“No more lying friends
Wanting tragic ends
Though they do pretend
