George Michael‘s death on Christmas day shook the world. The iconic singer helped build the template for what it meant to forego a career as a teen idol and become an adult megastar with grace and resilience. He has been regarded as one of the Eighties’ most important and innovative voices and songwriter, soundtracking the decade both as part of and outside of his career with Wham! Michael has left behind an immense influence on modern pop as well as one of the most memorable and successful careers in the genre.
Now we have a question for you: What is George Michael’s best song? Anything counts as long as it was billed to Michael as a solo artist, not as a Wham! single. Feel free to vote for an early solo release like “Careless Whisper” or “A Different Corner” — both debuted while he was still a member of Wham! — a mega-hit like “Faith” or “Freedom,” a duet like “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” with Elton John or “If I Told You That” with Whitney Houston or a more recent single like “John and Elvis Are Dead” or “True Faith.” Just please only vote once and for a single selection.
