My New Retro Single of the Week - George Michael - 'Fast Love'

This week, for my first retro single of the week for 2017, I have chosen a single from the late great George Michael, pop icon, 'Fast Love'.

Released back in 1996, this was the second single taken from George's third solo album, Older. Unsurprisingly, it reached the number one spot in the UK singles chart.

Sadly, this song is slowly climbing the charts again following George's death on Christmas Day 2016. Such a huge loss.

This was the only dance track on the album, and its stood the test of time very well indeed, still sounding slick and modern and cool, even 20 years later.

George had beautiful vocals and a great talent, and was more than a bit cheeky in many of his tracks, this one included!!

If you have somehow missed ever hearing this song, go take a listen and let me know what you think. For more singles of the week and music stuff, you can check out My Music page here. Happy listening :)
