Remembering: George Michael + Wicked Songs: Too Funky by George Michael

OH MY GOD!

Well, the singers just keep passing away and even on Christmas day this year, what a year it’s been but it’s not over yet. One week left of the year and today Boxing day, it was just announced George Michael passed away yesterday at home with his family but at the young age of only 53.

So writing a little now after getting back from spending time with my family the last couple of days. Turning on my laptop, reading that sad news as the first thing so after that I looked for Too Funky and now I’m on my thingy so I might as well write a little post for today about this song and for him.

Too Funky is my fave George Michael song ever! I even found the cass-single of it a little while ago too? Anyone else still have got any old cass-singles? They’re singles on cassette tape if don’t know what I’m talking about. My Mother who we all when up to her new place for this year’s Xmas, was a dance teacher when I was younger as a kid so I know all those pop artists songs including Wham! and GM and they all were played a lot at that time around the 80’s/90’s. Anyway this one was always my fave of George maybe for all the models in the video but even if just listening to the track, it’s still a great song just all by itself.

It’s final single for his recording contract with Sony Music before he started legal action to extricate himself from that contract. The song was just a single from 1992 which in between his early to mid 90’s albums which was 1990’s Listen Without Prejudice Vol.1 and Older in 1996 so never on one of his albums. A longer version or extended mix was on a comp album by various artists called Red Hot + Dance to help AIDS awareness with a couple of other tracks. Then off course much later was on his best of/greatest hits comp called Ladies & Gentlemen: The Best Of George Michael and is now also on the bonus disc of the reissue of Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1, his second solo studio album too. The last little bit here I’ve added because I always find interesting fun facts about my fave songs history on releases like when and where but I don’t know if other people find it a little boring or what?

The models featured in this video are Eva Herzigova, Linda Evangelista, Nadja Auermann, Emma Sjöberg, Estelle Hallyday, Shana Zadrick, Tyra Banks, Beverly Peele and Emma Balfour, also the actresses Julie Newmar and Rossy de Palma. The photo here I found somewhere says it’s backstage at the video clip but must be else where because that’s both Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford and those two are not in the Too Funky video.

So got to ask everyone now what’s your fave George Michael and/or Wham! song/s?

Too Funky lyrics

Hey, you’re just too funky for me
I gotta get inside of you
And I’ll show you heaven if you let me
Hey you’re just too funky for me
I gotta get inside, (I gotta get inside)
I gotta get inside of you (So when will that be?)
I watch you’re fingers working overtime (Overtime)
I’ve got to thinking that they should be mine. Oh!
I’d love to see you naked baby
I’d like to think that sometime maybe
Tonight, if that’s alright. Yeah!

Hey, you’re just too funky for me
I gotta get inside of you , (Won’t let you go)
I won’t let you, no-no
Hey you’re just too funky for me
I gotta get inside, (I gotta get inside)
I gotta get inside of you (I’ll let you love me)
I watch you drinkin’ and I take my time
I watch you sinkin’ all over that cheap red wine, Oh!
I’ve got to see you naked baby
I’d like to think that sometime maybe
Tonight my goal’s in sight, Yeah!

Baby, baby, baby, why do you do this to me?
Won’t let you go, (Won’t let you go)
You’re such a, you’re such a
Baby, baby, baby, why do you do this to me?

Hey you’re just too funky
(You’re never gonna have another lover in your bed)
You’re just too funky for me

(Would you like me to seduce you, is that what you’re trying to tell me?)
(Everybody wants a lover like that)
