Day 27 – 30 Day Music Challenge 

By | August 17, 2017

I have to admit, I ground to a bit of a halt over the prompt for Day 27.

“A Song That Breaks Your Heart”

It took me to places that I didn’t particularly want to visit, those of being 17 and thinking I’d found “The One”, of suddenly becoming a single parent with a three year old 13 years later (not the same person, neither were “The Ones” obviously) and a song that reminds me of my grandparents dying within a year of each other, they were absolutely devoted to each other.

Not the best place to be when I’m already a bit “aaaargh” anyway!

So, I’m not featuring any of those, they can remain tightly locked away (until they unexpectedly pop up on a music channel), my choice is from this wonderful man:

Praying For Time is such a beautiful song and the announcement of George’s death late on Christmas evening 2016 was something that made me gasp, someone I’d grown up listening to (as had everyone), someone who’s voice had such a range and could write some pretty wonderful songs too.

It transpired after his death that he’d secretly donated money to really deserving causes too and, by all accounts, enjoyed a pretty secluded life in a village where people just let him be.  None of this “oooh get me in the magazines because I’ve met someone/had an argument/had lipo/broken wind” palaver.

There were so many songs of George’s to choose from for this.

I do have one as my album in the morning, it’s the opening lines from Fast Love, “Gotta get up to get down, gotta get up to get down” and it’s always a bit of a race to either turn it off or snooze before the lines “all that bullsh*t conversation” comes on.  

Do you have a favourite George Michael song?
