George Michael Merges With The Infinite
Utterly shocking if it weren't 2016 - today we found out that George Michael, the famed pop singer, had passed at the age of 53.
A lot of other people are going to memorialize Michael better than I could. As much a singer and entertainer, the last couple of decades I've been impressed with how Michael pushed back on the MTV machine and made it through when his personal life was exposed in an era when coming out of the closet was something that could kill your career.
I liked some of George Michael's songs despite the fact he wasn't exactly in my wheelhouse, but my favorite was always Freedom! '90. That's one of his "doesn't matter your genre of choice" songs. It's just solid.
Let's remember George Michael today by wrapping up Christmas Day with some of his best.
