I remember the 1st time I heard "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" my grandmother was getting ready for work and this song was on the radio...I was literally just waking up when it came on.
His music defined so much of my childhood and adolescence...I remember staying up for hours playing One More Try over and over and singing it non-stop. I was 13 and just experienced my first heartbreak. Like the old saying goes: When you're young you know the song, when you're older you understand the lyrics.
RIP to an absolute legend, man. He came out so long ago and there are still so many closeted stars nowadays...fearing how it would affect their careers...but he found his freedom.
R.I.P George Michael
