This classic is 40 years old today. – Club Tropicana by Wham! on Apple Music 🎵
Just played Masters of the Universe: The Board Game. It’s a very well done RPG-style board game with countless scenarios, variations, and several expansions. Even the non-MotU fans enjoyed. Definitely aimed at adult fans, as it’s pretty complicated. Absolutely loved it. ⚔️🎲

One More Try – live gospel version 🎵
George Michael recorded some amazing covers of songs by the likes of Elton John, Stevie Wonder, and Queen, (just to name a few), and his renditions were frequently better. He also knew how to improve upon his own efforts; one of the most shining examples is this live performance of One More Try with a gospel choir. It’s nothing short of stunning.
Few songs take me back to the summers of my childhood as completely as this one. It’s a WHAM! Album track and B-side, and in my opinion, it’s one of the most underrated WHAM! Tracks.
Freedom ‘90 🎵
All we have to do now
Is take these lies and make them true somehow.
All we have to see
Is that I don’t belong to you, and you don’t belong to me.
My Mother Had a Brother 🎵
One of the most moving and beautiful songs George Michael ever wrote in my opinion, and it’s based on his real-life experience. The song is about his uncle, Colin.
The current surge of bigotry in the United States against the LGBTQ+ community is heartbreaking, and is yet another stain on our nation’s history of shamefully cruel intolerance.
We should be better than this by now. We must be better than this.
