Best George Michael Songs

One of the best singers of all time and no such list available to guide music-lovers to get to know his best. Here its my pleasure to make a list of top tens of my favorite singer.

The Top Ten

1 Careless Whisper

Awesome song. I started loving G.M. after listening this song

I heard this song many times in T.V. when it appeared, it was a big single and now it's a classic - MatrixGuy

I was born in 1998 and this song was released in 1984, I think my generation should stop listening to all those lousy artists and start listening to the real music made before I was born. It's a great composition that moves me in a way that words can't describe.

I grew up listening to this. RIP my man

This has to be the 2nd best song of George Michael! The song, lyrics and tune are really touching... And it really touches heart!

This song should be no 2 after careless whisper
The beat of this son is absolutely good even far better than wake me up and really a meaningful song too

Please vote this.. - navinsingh22

My second favourite song after careless whisper. I will never tire of hearing it!

Best song by them definitely! The lyrics, the music.

4 Faith Faith

This is in my opinion his best song ever! Out of all the amazing songs that this amazing man has written the one people remember the most is faith! "well I guess it would be nice if I could touch your body! I know not every body has got a body like you! "epic lyrics and kick ass guitar great vibe this should be number 1!

Well I guess it would be nice if I could touch your body! I know not every body has got a body like you.

That pretty much sums it up. This song has some kickin guitar and it is about his favorite subject.

This is like his theme song

This song sums up my childhood pretty well, possibly the best george Michael song, and it cemented him in my mind as the coolest person on earth.

People have faith...should be number 1 in my opinion

5 One More Try

Close your eyes and feel the depth of his emotion. If this was the last song I ever heard, I'd die a happy camper.

The vocals in this song are unreal. He really does have one of the purest and most emotional voices ever

I was bed-ridden, recovering from surgery when I heard this song playing in the next room. It spoke to me in a magical, spiritual way. I love this song.

I love the conflict, minimal instrument and build-up to the final resolution, of the only time the song title is mentioned.

? Mothers Pride Mothers Pride

Sends goosebumps down my spine,he sings this with such emotion

The Contenders

11 Freedom! '90 Freedom! '90

Personally, I believe this is the best George Michael song, great heartfelt lyrics, and it has many different sections, that cover many different genres of music, it is ridiculous and criminal how low this song is on the list, I think it should be competing for number 1

This song proves george michael was the ultimate writer and singer. who else did videos and didn't appear in them?

12 Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Me Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Me

Sheer perfection. Thing is though how does one choose from so many outstanding songs?

13 Jesus to a Child Jesus to a Child

Why this song is so down, please feel the soul of this song.

For me this is on top of George Michael's songs along with careless whisper.

This song takes my soul to a strange place, it must be the first

A song that showed me the meaning of love

Come on people, this is one of his best. Was #1 on Billboard for 2 weeks. 5 of the songs ranked ahead of it didn't even hit the top five. One of my favorites, anyways.

Perhaps his best effort. Should definitely be ranked no lower than fifth or sixth.

Awesome...George shows off some killer dance moves in the music video

Awesome song... better watch out, baby who's that?

Absolute best song of all time! The lyrics are so meaningful and relevant. Timeless!

This is his greatest song. He sung this on an American Idol finale and brought the house down.

19 Somebody to Love

I have never, never heard anyone who could sing this song besides Freddie, there was no one who do it justice. Then I saw George do it at the tribute. Georges cover pulls you right in and YOU want somebody to love along with him. I am so sad he has left us. We sill have his beautiful voice and music. RIP

I know it's a Queen song, but nobody can forget his awesome perfomance when he sang it in the Freddie Mecury Tribute!
