  • The very best of the 80s has passed with George Michael. Though not the most prolific musician, almost every song on all albums was outstanding. 'Older' was my personal favorite. Hard to believe we have missed the chance to see him perform live, and that there will be no more of his incredible music. Tragic.

    I have never been a fan of George Michaels' music but it still sucks to see another legend of the industry gone. RIP George

  • Matt

    By pop standards, GM's music wasn't bad at all!

  • Can't believe he is gone.

  • Marianne Jacobsen

    So no one has brought up the fact that this is probably an HIV/AIDS related death unfortunately.

    • David Bernard

      Even if that turns out to be the case, what the fuck does that have to do with anything?? R.I.P George.

      • Marianne Jacobsen

        NOTHING except its shitty that someone in this day an age would die from AIDs in a first world country. However it looks like Heroin so…thats what it had to do with everything

  • David Webb

    The only song that I hated the most to listen to of his is when he was with WHAM! and they had that stupid song "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go"
    I still don't care for it but I have learned to tolerate it.
    Some if not more songs of his with WHAM! and his solo career isn't bad.
    Nevertheless,he was a star in his own way and he will be missed.
