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 Careless Whisper Cover Art

Instant timeless classic. together with TFF best songs and Collins' Jacket THIS represents 80s feel, mood in its essence and commercial pop appeal most properly - in my humble opinion better than any post-punk, new wave, hair/glam/stadium rock or romance, funk, disco acts better than Madonnas, jacksons, princes (even though we know that Prince - his genius as an artist by far topped most of any other pop songwriters of that era easily - that is for sure) Note: I have no comment nor any statement regarding obviously (and mostly) much more consistent artistically (not always-and-only commercially) oriented prog rock or rock music as such of course (in that case to talk about decades doesn't make sense anyway)

Nobody loves George Michael and his music, more than I do. I've been listening to him for over 35 years and I love all of his songs; but this is, in my opinion, his all-time best. It is the Perfect blend of music, lyrics, instrumentation, and voice; making it one of the greatest songs of all time. It is his legacy to the world and what a legacy it is.

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've heard him sing this song as pop rock and as a jazzy song with a full orchestra, sounds completely different but it doesn't change what a prolific songwriter he was. Loved his music, pop rock artist, soul singer or jazzy blues, he had it all. R.I.P.

2 One More Try One More Try Cover Art

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.

This song makes me well up every time. Such a gorgeous voice, so wholesome and powerful. If you want to hear George really sing, this is the one...

This song always send me into a very pensive, reflective mood. There is so much depth conveyed in his voice and the melody!

One of my all time favorite songs, what emotion, what range... close your eyes and just enjoy the pure talent! RIP George.

3 Wake Me Up Before You Go Go

My introduction to "Wham"...from the moment I heard this song...I was in love!

I would never go go without George michael

I love it and my does too

One of his best

4 Faith Faith Cover Art

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.

Even if is considered as a classic religious farm song I think it's perspective goes far away!

5 Last Christmas Last Christmas Cover Art

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..

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

Despite the very simple musical composition, with only four chords (D, Bm, Em, A) on repeat, this song will always get me in mood for Christmas.

Last Christmas one of the very favorite songs of George Michael's that is played all year round.

6 Father Figure Father Figure Cover Art

The riff is fantastic, could listen to it all day long. It creates a mystic vibe. Great song

My favourite G M song. Haunting and beautiful. Never tire of this song.

So good to be No 10# I think it deserves more than that number

This song was like a drug played it over and over

7 Freedom! '90 Freedom! '90 Cover Art

This track is Awesome, Relevant, Suspicious, Sophisticated, Immortal, Unbeatable, Classic, Mega, Alpha, Productive, Unbelievable and with a good message on his point to show why is it the best.

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

Very hard to choose but this is still a banging tune today

Most lyrical of his songs. Simply an excellent song to me.

8 Freedom

I can't believe this song is NOT even on THE LIST! Come on Everybody, this is one of his best!

The piano riff straight up smokes on this one. An excellent compliment to his ballads

His absolute best! Catchy, amazing music and lyrics. Should number 1!

Crime and passion, but this song goes harder than that!

9 Everything She Wants

Now this is third on my list of fave wham songs let's get it nearer the top!

He sings with so much emotion and passion in this song.

I really love the beats of that music.

Grand Theft Auto 5

10 I Want Your Sex I Want Your Sex Cover Art

I am the girl who posted about I would have sex with george michael all day and all night, I am very sorry that someone found me to be disgusting, I never wanted to upset anyone, I am just a girl who is bulled everyday (because I live with my bully) and I had a crush on george michael and had a fantasy to have someone who would understand me, (because george michael was kind of bulled as well) to take my pain away, so again I am so very sorry for making anyone upset, I do still like the song, but next I will post something better about the song, thank you for you time.

I would love to have sex with George Michael all day and all night he would not have to ask me

How Everything she needs is a much higher song when it's not even a GM song, it's a Wham! song, knew the difference please.

One of the best songs ever. It's sexy, smooth, and catchy.

The Contenders

11 Fast Love Fast Love Cover Art

This song deserves to be higher than 19 the emotion in his voice as he sings about trying to move on from anselmo but no one is the same and how he misses his baby is heartbreaking. the best george song

This song is just so cool and definitely should be in top 10 if not top 5 brilliant and so cool

I almost forgot that Fast Love is kinda better than Monkey

Pretty soother song than Careless Whisper (Even)

12 I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me) I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me) Cover Art

Brilliant song and brings back brilliant childhood memories one of the truly great pop artists in his absolute prime.

I love this song, so heartwarming and inspiring.

The best song ever

13 Cowboys and Angels

"But that scar on your face
That beautiful face of yours
In your heart there's a trace
Of someone before"

Lyrics to die for!

What a song!

I love the sweet flow and sway to this Beautiful song...I just along with it.

I love how he used the orchestra, beautiful song

Love this so much.

14 Waiting for That Day

Makes me think of a love gone by, that I know will never come back or could ever be replaced.

Honestly I think this is his best song

This is timeless just perfect.

So old but good too

15 Jesus to a Child Jesus to a Child Cover Art

In retrospect, perhaps one of George Michaels' most personal songs. Both melancholic and nostalgic, it stands, to this reviewer, as his artistic masterpiece. Beauitful lyrics and tunes.

One of the most beautiful songs ever written. A song that perfectly represented him as an artist. This should definitely be in the top 5!

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

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

16 Different Corner Different Corner Cover Art

All these years and I had never heard this song from it's my favorite of his! His voice is so beautiful and the lyrics tug at my heart.

Love this track, it's so emotive, beautiful lyrics and melody. To me much better than Careless Whisper.

A great song that makes you think how fate can be the only reason two people ever meet

George's very best song in my opinion you can feel the emotion & his timing is terrific

17 Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me Cover Art

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

I sing this song every time its on

The most amazing song ever

18 Kissing a Fool Kissing a Fool Cover Art

21 Killer/Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone Killer/Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone Cover Art
22 Monkey

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?

23 Praying for Time Praying for Time Cover Art

This song it's awesome, how is it only the number 34 possition? this song is not getting the credit that it deserves. people are missing some of the best lyrics and poesy by george michael.

Not the biggest fan of George Michael but the Biggest Fan of Praying For Time such a beautiful piece of song.

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

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

24 Amazing Amazing Cover Art

Not usually a fan of George Michael, but I love this one. I think this is his best.
