Happy birthday to the one and only George Michael who's 48 today. "Amazing" is taken from what is his fifth and so far last album, Patience (2004) and about and dedicated to his partner Kenny Goss. What I find endearing about Michael is that he's a real bad boy, a total lunatic, doing ridiculous things when drunk or high or whatever, when you know that HE knows it's all bad. The tabloids are on him constantly, and he's still acting crazy. But he's also an incredibly talented songwriter and singer, an excellent entertainer. He did some great things in the duo Wham! with the far less talented Andrew Ridgeley, and as a solo artist he's been even better. "Amazing" exemplifies his talent perfectly.
