I can't get over

how for most of these George Michael songs, I literally haven't heard them in decades - but it turns out I still know every lyric cold. "Make it Big" was one of the very first rock albums I ever owned - on vinyl, naturally (along with Duran Duran's "Duran Duran" (apparently the 1983 reissue), Michael Jackson's "Thriller," and Asia's "Alpha," yes that's right, fight me) - and I practically wore the thing out.

Someone on Twitter was pointing out how radical he was in a lot of ways, too -- when MTV wanted him to slap a warning on "I Want Your Sex," he did that "Explore Monogamy" bit, and when he was shamefully outed after the restroom incident he did that great video "Outside" which I still love for when the bathroom turns into a disco complete with chrome toilets and mirrored balls.

My first album too. The vinyl is lost in my parents' collection, right next to my brother's Tears for Fears I bet. Might have to get it out and display it somewhere, next to my DVD of Purple Rain.
