George Michael, farewell

A few weeks ago, I was telling someone that every Christmas period, we will hear the song Last Christmas almost everywhere in Singapore shopping malls.

He passed away in his sleep on Christmas Day.

No reason stated for his sudden death?

After he left WHAM!....there were Faith, Jesus to a Child, Father Figure, One More Try, Spinning the Wheel...

I was crazy about Wham! in sec school :) I still have the CD. Had the cassette tapes but had discarded them decades ago.

Most memorable was his Older album. Used to listen to Jesus to a Child on British Rail or in my London apartment, sipping my Smirnoff orange whilst typing out my papers.

As smooth as my vodka...

He was also a generous benefactor to random vulnerable members of the community. A fantastic songsmith, vocalist and performer, too. Such a shame, barely passed his 50s.
