George Michael [1963-2016]

Artist: George Michael
LP: 7" single
Song: "A Different Corner" 
[ listen ]

Just when it looked we might make it through the end of the year without yet another talented musical icon disappearing from Earth...WHAM! George Michael is gone. This lovely and moving 1986 ballad, released when he was just 23 years old, has always been one of my favorites of the '80s. I'm grateful for whatever corner it was George went around that helped him bring his music to the world. His obituary in The New York Times is here.

[ June 25, 1963 — December 25, 2016 ]
We're gonna' miss you, George.
