This Could Be George Michael’s Most Underrated Hit Song
The final George Michael single to ever hit the chart is likely his most underrated.
'Fastlove' was the second single off Michael's 1996 album Older, and featured a sample of Patrice Rushen's 1982 hit 'Forget Me Nots', and hit No. 8 on Billboard's Hot 100 songs chart. It's an electro-energectic tune about one's need for self-gratification without the confines of commitment. In my opinion, it's not only one of George Michael's sexiest songs, it's one of the sexiest songs I know of, spurred on by it's wildly colorful, controversial and technological music video. The clip was ahead of it's time, capitalizing on the burgeoning digital age.
George Michael reportedly passed away peacefully at his home over Christmas weekend at the age of 53.
