TGIF! Welcome to our Friday program which today is very much orientated towards the 1960’s, plenty of great music from those days. and Ingrid’s Freaky Friday Fun Facts is also about the 1960’s. Two people from the world of music are featured related to this day in music, on this day in the year 1963 George Michael was born, and on this day in 2009 Michael Jackson died. Both of them taken away far too soon. Yazmin also of course keeps us up to date with things to do with our What, Where and When” segment.
“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.’
Michael admitted that “A Different Corner” was the “most honest” and personal song he had ever done. He elaborated further on the song’s meaning:
“That was about a very quick relationship, a here today gone tomorrow one. It’s amazing how emotional you can get in a short period of time and how long it can last. Someone can really shake you up and it takes you a long time to get yourself back on your feet; that was what that was about.”
