Single: A DIFFERENT CORNER
Michael about the song: “I felt like shit. I went in and recorded exactly
the way I felt, and that’s the way it sounds. It was partly Wham! and partly
the end of a relationship. It was the farthest I’d ever fallen, and in a very
short period of time. I had to get rid of it somehow, I had to write about it.
That’s a really perverse side that I’m sure a lot of writers have -‘I feel like shit,
but maybe I’ll get a good song out of it.’”
Score: No 1 in the UK, in Canada, Portugal, Norway and… Zimbabwe (fact!)
Turn Up the Volume: Cheesy? Yes, but one of the best cheesiest songs
I ever heard. I’m sure The Bee Gees loved this magnificent ballad.
