Comments & Submitter Name
"George Michael""He was doing fine prior to his arrest for sexual misconduct involving a male officer. He's still performing today, but he's half the performer he was both with Wham! and solo." - MOR
"Andrew Ridgeley""Andrew only recorded one solo album, and apparently was at odds with the record label over the direction of it, which is unfortunate, because he's a very good singer in his own right––kind of a "hard rock Buddy Holly" kind of sound. Andrew was better off in Wham, even though his vocals never got to be showcased as George Michael basically dominated the group." - Lisa

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Everything She Wants"
The Funny Lyrics:
Uh huh huh...
Oh...oh...
Uh-huh, uh-huh...
Doo doo doo la la la la la...
Why They're Funny:
These nonsense scat lines serve as a "bridge"; I just think they seem kinda funny. :D
Submitted by: Schadenfreudian Slip
"Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go"
The Funny Lyrics:
Jitterbug!
Why They're Funny:
This occurs several times during the song, including twice at the beginning. I just find it funny that George Michael would just randomly throw it in. Maybe to set the tone? I dunno...
Submitted by: Quyjibo
There are additional Funny lyrics available.

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

"I'm Your Man"
The Repetitive Lyrics:
Baby I'm your man
Don't you know who I am?
Baby I'm your man
If you're gonna do it
Do it right, do it with me
(Repeated 20 + times)
Why They're Repetitive:
Okay George, I think we get the point.
Submitted by: Celeste
 

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Freedom"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I don't want nobody, baby
(a few lines later)
Girl, all I want right now is you
Why They're Nonsensical:
Make up your mind! (Actually, since the first line is a double-negative, it does seem to imply that he wants *somebody*...)
Submitted by: Lilli
"Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Jitterbug!
Why They're Nonsensical:
This lyric could also be placed in the repetitive category (since it *is* sung throughout the song, including four times in succession at the beginning), but it really makes no sense to have it thrown in there. It was the 80's! No one was going to take you dancing to do the jitterbug with you!

Um you're George Michael.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Careless Whisper"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
So I'm never gonna dance again
Guilty feet have got no rhythm
Why They're Inappropriate:
Which one is the reason for never dancing again? The lack of rhythm, or the careless whispers? And you never told us what the heck was whispered that screwed up your life? (And are you singing to your boyfriend, or to us females?)
Submitted by: caslahao
"Last Christmas"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
This year to save me from tears
I'll give it to someone special
Why They're Inappropriate:
Any attempts at a guilt trip have been rendered null and void, as the girl who dumped you isn't gonna care about who you give your heart to this year.
