At the risk of embarrassing myself, here is a short song I wrote a few days after he died:

I'm not a professional (or even a good) singer, so...

Default Happy tears

I had one of those moments yesterday when music just overwhelmed. I was driving to work listening to George's music. I was singing along to 'Someone to Love' and at the same time just awestruck a what a great performer he was. The next song on was Jesus to a child. I was just overwhelmed, and a little bit teary. What a beautifully talented man George was, he could bring you to great highs with his performances but also could move you beyond words with his beautiful tribute to his lost love. How much more poignant was this song when we knew what/who it was about.
I am not very good with words and have not really described 'my moment' yesterday very well. However wherever you are George you continue to live on in all of us and will continue to do so always with your music.PS don't you just hate,hate, hate using the past tense with respect to George.

I was just wondering about Dee C Lee, the very early Wham! backing singer.

Not sure if posted already but found this on FB.



This was posted on an unofficial 'Style Council' twitter page, as if from her:

I don't know what is the 'determining factor' that makes a British artist successful or non successful in America. But George was obviously able to break through.

I was reading this quite lengthy article from 1988 and it's quite something, all these years later.

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/fe...ously-19880128

The article describes him as 'cocky', bordering on 'arrogant' for those who didn't like him.

At that time, until the mid 90s, I enjoyed the music but for some reason didn't feel able to connect with him on a more personal level. He didn't seem brittle and was taking the whole world by storm.

After the 90s though and the controversies, I think I actually began to feel I could relate to him more because he was shown to be so vulnerable and very human. Sometimes he said things I didn't agree with or was downright offended by. But I could feel for him more.

I have just watched George at the Palais Garnier Opera House. I feel so sad as he was so talented and had such a beautiful soul.
