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

Some of the first songs I ever knew from him and about one year ago, I began to try to find out more about the song and so and so I also got to know George more and more, thanks a lot, George.

I loved George Michael as long as I loved Music... It started with Careless Whisper.

The best of the best

5 Faith

For TOP 5 definitely

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

Classic GM great song

10 Freedom! '90

For top 3 possitions!

This song should be higher on this list!

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

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

Amazing song

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!

Brilliant song. Stunning vocals!

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

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

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

16 Fast Love

Super Amazing!

For Top 5 definitely!

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

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?

18 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!

19 If You Were There
20 Praying for Time

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.

21 Kissing a Fool

Umm why isn't this #1 because I mean hello?

Most soulful song it could be

My number 1

Only MICHAEL

A song of pure beauty

26 Cowboys and Angels

"But that scar on your face
