Artiestinformatie

Land   Verenigd Koninkrijk

Populair duo bestaande uit George Michael en Andrew Ridgeley. Opgericht in 1981 en tot 1986 enorm succesvol.

In 1982 scoren ze in de Top 40 hun eerste hit met Young Guns (Go For It). Hierna volgt een reeks van vele hits waarvan de singles Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go en The Edge Of Heaven de top van de Top 40 halen. In 1984 scoort George solo met de single Careless Whisper. In 1986 bereikt ook A Different Corner de top van de hitparade. De single Last Christmas, die in 1984 verschijnt, is een van de best verkochte kerstplaten en is ieder jaar tijdens de kerstperiode veel te horen.

In 1986 maakt de band bekend te stoppen op het hoogtepunt en geeft een spetterend afscheidsconcert in het Wembleystadion in Londen. Andrew en George gaan beiden solo verder, maar alleen George is succesvol geworden.

Songtekst

Everyday I hear a different story
People say that you're no good for me
Saw your lover with another
She's making a fool of you
Oh
If you loved me baby
You'd deny it
But you laugh and tell me I should try it
Tell me I'm a baby and I don't understand

But you know that I'll forgive you
Just this once, twice, forever
'Cause baby
You could drag me to hell and back
Just as long as we're together
And you do

I don't want your freedom
I don't want to play around
I don't want nobody's baby
Part - time love just brings me down
I don't want your freedom
Girl all I want right now is you

Like a prisoner who has his own key
But I can't escape until you love me
I just go from day to day
Knowing all about the other boys
You take my hand and tell me I'm a fool
To give you all I do
I bet you someday baby
Someone says the same to you

But you know that I'll forgive you
Just this once, twice, forever
'Cause baby
You could drag to hell and back
Just as long as we're together
And you do

Oh

I don't want your freedom
I don't want to play around
I don't want nobody's baby
Part - time love just brings me down
I don't need your freedom
Girl all I want right now is you

But you know that I'll forgive you
Just this once, twice, forever
'Cause baby
You could drag me to hell and back
Just as long as we're together
And you do

I don't want your freedom
I don't need to play around
I don't want nobody's baby
Part - time love just brings me down

I don't want your
(I don't want your)
I don't want your
(I don't want your)
I don't want your
(I don't want your)
I don't want your
(I don't want your)
Oh...
