54 is how old George Michael would have been today. His music had a big impact on my life. Wham! were very much part of the classic 80s soundtrack, and then into his solo work he built amazing songs around his stellar voice. He just had so much about him. His voice, his looks, his style. Very few can pull off the title of being an icon, but he certainly was one. Here are a few of my faves. (Faith is one of the best songs ever written, by the way).
