Line(s) of the Day #ADifferentCorner

I’d say love was a magical thing
I’d say love would keep us from pain
Had I been there, had I been there.

A Different Corner¬†from the Music from the Edge of Heaven¬†album (1986) has long been one of my favourite George Michael songs. With its heartfelt lyrics and gorgeous vocals, it really does highlight how special he was. A UK number one, it was written, sung, played produced and arranged by George himself, the first British person to do so. I never thought I would be writing a George Michael dedication for quite some time, 53 is no age at all. George had a ridiculous amount of talent and as long as I can remember listening to music he was always around. I even quoted one of his lyrics for Last Christmas only a few weeks ago. It’s also clear from the many tributes just how kind, caring and generous he was.

Line(s) of the Day #NeverForget

never-forget-take-that-cover

Never forget where you’ve come here from
Never pretend that it’s all real
Someday soon this will be someone else’s dream

Taken from the song Never Forget by English band Take That from their third studio album Nobody Else (1995). This was the group’s seventh UK number one single before they disbanded, until they regrouped 10 years later.
