Waiting For That Rate- The George Michael/Wham! Singles Discography Rate- The Winner Is....

  1. @Hairycub1969 needs to sit on the naughtycub step!

    True Faith is that bad that it raised up a couple of otherwise zero scoring songs to 1-3 pointers for me.

  2. I actually find his version of "True faith" more moving now that he's no longer with us!
     
  3. Wow, 7 zeroes for True Faith...So harsh!!

    It’s funny - in a good way - that we can all be GM fans yet have such differing opinions on GM songs. (Having said that, I end up having a moment where I’m wondering if something is wrong with me for not hearing whatever the vast majority are hearing lol).

    Ps This was my first ever rate and I didn’t realise we were meant to supply comments/opinions along with our ratings, sorry.
     
  4. I genuinely wonder what he thought when he heard the finished article back? Finding the tune is really hard- it could have been made into an EDM banger and saw him return to the top 10 off the back of his jail sentence- that would have been better marketing surely?
     
  5. Don't worry- Comments are only optional and some posters prefer not to send them but comment in the thread instead- either way is perfectly fine!
     
  6. Oh that's a good loss, because I hate it as well (3 points - I didn't go lower than 3 points). He has such a beautiful voice and then he goes and hides it behind this lifeless vocoder effect ....

  7. I gave 'True Faith' 5 which is my joint second lowest score. Listening to it just now I think I was too generous. My liking for the original clouded my judgement I guess. And that cloud was pirouetting.

    So did Barney and others. Barney needs an auto-cue for the lyrics because he took so many drugs he doesn't remember even 'Blue Monday'. That's also why New Order have 59 songs starting with "hey now, what you doin'" and I am quite sure he doesn't know that.

  12. After reading everyone's comments I decided to go and listen to the original version and surprisingly it's really quite good. I mean, I like New Order so it's not that surprising.
     
  13. Surprised this is first out

  14. I really want to agree with you...but the way everyone was trashing "True faith" before the first reveal kinda gave the game away for me....I really wanted to defend it without creating suspicion that I gave it a 9.5 score.
    "True Faith" belongs on a Now CD:
    "Now that's what I call chilled out covered versions of 80's Songs"

  15. I just listened again and it isn't awful compared to say.......Black Eyed Peas, but it is poor when looked at in terms of GM's own back catalogue. So in a way it's his own fault.

    I would have been shocked if ANYTHING else was first out. It's like going to a Michelin-star restaurant and being served the Chef's Special, which then tends to be a bowl of live cockroaches.

    Can't wait to see what's second, though! (Probably one of my many 10s.)

  17. I was surprised how maligned An Easier Affair was last time so I’m expecting it to be the next top 40 hit to leave but probably after the random internet songs and not-really-singles....

  18. George's voice is so beautiful. No need for vocal effects. True Faith got what she deserved.

  19. Someone should have told Nile Rodgers.
     
  20. I see you gunning for "Fantasy"
