I was very sad to hear George Michael had died.
Years ago in the early 80s I came home via Southgate tube station and the saxophone echos through the tunnels. The song being played was Careless Whisper and it captured my heart. I loved George Michaels music from that moment. I always wondered if that was him playing or not, in my heart know I felt he was in the station saying something to me.
I listen to his music and it sounds like he was in some pain over a girl. But years later after finding out he was gay I listened to the music again in a different light. Was he saying something else? Did I miss something in the meaning?
Now I hear he has died and it hit me, brought a few tears to my eyes. I will have to listen to his music again and wonder at how such a talented artist can leave us too early.
