Listen to Heal the Pain by George Michael.
It seems that a challenge has been issued to come up with a few worthy singles from George Michael's sometimes maligned Listen Without Prejudice, Vol. One. Challenge accepted!
Now, I'm not saying I think this album is some kind of major lost masterpiece, but I do think it's a compelling time capsule from 1990 (please don't tell me that is really almost TWENTY years ago), with several songs ripe for mining. Let's face it, the guy knows his way around a catchy pop song!
Here's one of my favorites, Heal the Pain. Apparently none other than Macca shares my affection for this tune! I just found out that George Michael recorded a version of this song featuring Paul McCartney in 2005. Well, it is pretty Beatley. Ok Bill, thanks for letting me post that!
