Careless Whisper

1) You can't miss George Michael's gold hoops in the photo above or in the "Careless Whisper" video. Are you wearing any jewelry right now? none

2) Though the label says this hit is performed by "Wham! featuring George Michael," George Michael is the only member of the pop duo who appears in the video. Do you remember the name of the other guy who was in Wham? Andrew Ridgely, at least I think that's how it's spelled

3) Much of the video was filmed on Watson Island, a man-made island near South Beach. Have you ever been to Miami? I have not been to Florida

4) Born Georgios Panayiotou, George Michael is of Greek descent, the son of the Greek restauranteur in East London. When you think of Greek cuisine, what comes to mind? Baklava is the only name that springs to mind because I don't know a lot of the names but I do love Greek food

5) Today he lives in a tony suburb called Highgate, and his neighbors are Kate Moss and Sting. Tell us about one of your neighbors. one of my neighbors has been a friend of mine for 20+ years, although we respect each other's space

6) George Michael fans can purchase officially licensed merchandise from his website, including an iPhone cover with his photo and signature. Tell us about your cell phone. Is it Apple or Android? Is it a smartphone? I have an iPhone 5c, white, I've had it over a year

7) George Michael sang Stevie Wonder's "You and I" for Prince William's wedding to Kate Middleton. What's your favorite love song? I like "My Love" by Paul McCartney

8) In 2014, George had a health scare. He was rushed to the hospital for tests and released the next day. Have you ever ridden in an ambulance? no, I luckily never have

9) Known for hard partying in his youth, George is now in his 50s and says he's quite happy to spend his evenings eating takeout and watching DVDs. Are you doing any socializing this weekend? I am hanging out with my niece--she joined me for breakfast and laundry

Back when Billy Joel was the hot new artist (think late 1970s and "Just the Way You Are") he told an interviewer how much he admired Sir Paul. What an influence Sir Paul had been. So the reporter asked, if he was here now, what would you say to McCartney. Billy Joel said, "'My Love' is a pretty good song. You should finish it some day.'" I'm sure Billy Joel realizes he sounded like an asshole and wishes he could take it back. But the thing is, I think of that quote whenever I hear Paul perform "My Love" in concert, which he always does, still dedicating it to Linda. That song means a great deal to very many people.

I agree with you. That is a good McCartney tune.
