  1. Faith is my favorite George Michael song.

  2. My favorite George Michael song is Freedom ’90. Whatever mood I am in, if that song comes on, I want to burst out singing.

  3. ‘Father Figure’, or ‘One More Try’. Definitely.

  4. This is a great giveaway; however, my favorite George Michael song is not on this CD. I love Careless Whisper. Though it is George Michael’s song it is credited to Wham! I think it the best makeout song ever!

  5. Definitely “Faith.” A friend and I did a takeoff of it last year here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IHA3AcVQOg

  6. Favorite GeorGe Michael son is obviously FAITH!

  7. without a doubt, “Faith”

  8. “Fantasy.”

  9. I will be your father figure put your lovin’ hand in mine!

  10. Praying for Time, and of course Faith.

  11. “Heal The Pain” is my favorite – also like the version he recorded with Sir Paul.

  12. So many to choose from.. Faith is likely a favorite. Also I knew You Were Waiting (w/ Aretha) is brilliant! Also brilliant? The fact that a picture of George Michael hangs on my office wall.

  13. “Kissing a Fool”

  14. Father Figure, for sure.

  15. I wish they would release all three parts of “I Want Your Sex” digitally, but these is still very cool.

  16. One More Try. A great, emotion-filled vocal.

  17. Freedom ’90 I WONT LET YOU DOOOOOOOOOOOOOWN.

  18. I will do anything for George Michael. Even comment for the first time on Stereogum. “Praying For Time” undoubtedly. The most emotionally potent song known to mankind.

  19. I’m a big fan of “Outside,” especially the music video. His best work was with Wham! though.

  20. The one I sing in karaoke is still my all-time favorite. “Kissing A Fool.” It brings the damn house down, time after blessed time.

  21. ‘Faith’ is still my fave – I love the guitar and the video…..

  22. “Amazing” is pretty amazing.

  23. It’s a tough choice – but “One More Try” is one of my karaoke favorites!

  24. praying for time, different corner, kissing a fool, and blue (especially)

  25. faith. i don’t think i’ve listened to music as dedicatedly as when i was five, sitting next to my dad’s record player with my sister’s george michaels album. it spoke to me.

  26. Us girls used to sing “I Want Your Sex” on the playground when I was in 2nd grade–oblivious of its content! ;) Still can’t beat this album.

  27. “Kissing a Fool”

  28. my favorite george michaels song is definitely Freedom! 90′

  29. “Father Figure” for sure.

  30. Freedom 90′ never lets me down. I always liked Monkey too.

  31. I Want Your Sex! Love to play this on a jukebox because its such a long song.

  32. George Michael’s Wham! “Careless Whisper” is timeless and by far the best song he has ever written

  33. “Faith” still gets me.

  34. Although the breakup of Wham nearly killed me ;), I liked “Freedom.”

  35. On This Album I Love “Father Figure”…But My Favorite At The Moment Is “This Is Not Real Love”!!

  36. I think it would be nice if I could touch your body…

    I always liked “Freedom 90″ best though.

  37. One more try, you have been loved, Jessus to a child… and so many songs I love, still big fan from 1985 till now!!

  38. “You Have Been Loved”

  39. Favorite has to be Freedom 90! Favorite artist and favorite song…

  40. one of my favorite has to be “hand to mouth”. everybody talks about the new generation, jump on the wagon or they’ll leave you behind. but no one gave a thought to the rest of the nation. like to help you buddy, but I haven’t got the time.” at the beginning of a day, there are many people who don’t switch on their conscience…

  41. Father Figure. And George Michael is a treasure.

  42. When patience was released he stated he doesn’t want to do any more albums. He doesn’t have much to show as it is. I don’t listen to any of his old songs. Over the years he has been refusing to do anymore music. Last December he said in an interview he is holding onto all of the new material he has written, he thinks releasing albums is just passe. Re-releasing an outdated album is another one of his bad career moves. I

  43. It’s gotta be “I Want Your Sex”

  44. You Have Been Loved is one of my favorite GM songs….so hard to choose just one

  45. Freedom ’90.
