It’s been 30 years this year since George Michael’s Debut solo album Faith was released, and I fancied making it this week’s Throwback Thursday!
According to multiple online sources, the idea for the music video and general aesthetic for Faith was to show that George had moved away from Wham! and how they were viewed. Part of this included using the Bo Diddley rhythm to show a more ‘rock ‘n’ roll vibe’ for his solo work.
Faith achieved the no.2 spot on the UK singles chart (Official Charts) and the no.1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 spot in the year 1988!
