"With it’s caterwauling horns and insistent groove, the track became a firm fan favourite."

This is why it sounds like the stuff he recorded along with the Happy.

Milky, you're rambling now.

If you contact Chris Porter, he will confirm it's a Faith outtake from 1987.

Just be grateful I'm here for these little nuggets. Have I ever let you down before? x

Nope, that's why I think you're the guy that wrote that article. :lol:

I heard that already. It's a push for the new reissue of LWP, so it's a nicer story told that way.

Showtime to premiere documentary on George Michael
~Godspeed little one~
~Don't talk about angels
Or how I'll be saved
I'm no coward
But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

Excellent show, quite moving to hear how his lover was fighting HIV at the very time George was singing at the Freddie Tribute show in 1992.

Just watched it and it was excellent. I've said it many times before, but I can't express just how good George was at the FM Tribute. His voice was like nothing I had ever heard before, just so, so pure, so utterly, mind-blowingly amazing to hear.

A Different Corner is definitely up there as one of my most favourite songs ever, by any artist. It's genius...he was a genius, albeit a flawed one, as so many seem to be. :?

I haven't seen it and I'm not even sure I can watch it unless it's on youtube. You are right about him, though. And A Different Corner is killer. Really. It has a special meaning for me as well as it happened to be playing in my car when something life-changing, happened to me. Every time I hear it, now, I remember as though I was still there and it was happening all over, again. And it wasn't good. But George was. He, his voice and that song were what got me through something devastating.
Cause you are beautiful
Your scars are beautiful, like the Jade
You'll still shine when you sink into the sea
Where the bleeding scarlet jealousy
Carves away your belief

Not quite. It was originally recorded during the Faith sessions but released later as a Prejudice b-side.


Just bought the new 2 disc edition of Prejudice with Fantasy on the second disc. While I was ripping it I discovered I have the original version on the deluxe version of Faith! Stuck it on for a quick listen and realised why it didn't stick with me as it's not a patch on the new version.

It will air HBO Canada today/tonight. I no longer have the channel, had to cut back on quite a few channels recently. I wonder if it will be online somewhere, I sure hope so. I really want to see it.
