Many people confuse this. George Michael was still with Wham! in 1984, but he did release this record solo, as he did with 'A Different Corner' in 1986, just before their split. :)

I would've said Wham! also, as the U.S. Album of "Make It Big" includes "Careless Whisper."

"FREEDOM" by George Michael...that song was a bad! George Michael totally busted out with that whole series of songs that were his post-WHAM songs. It kind of started out with "FAITH" and the whole "ROCK-N-ROLL REVENGE" vibe that he was copping in the "FAITH" video, which basically George was letting people know that he had mad roots in rock, and, for all you guitar buffs out there, could stroke the hell out of a C Major BAR chord, and get his chops on! Yeah George! (OR is it a B MAjor?). Anyways, after he blew us away with the Rock-n-Roll Revenge vibe, he made his way into the brash world of like having these torrid video affairs with models, and came correct with these totally new, almost theme-like, chants, which would be "FREEDOM", and later "FATHER FIGURE", but definately "FREEDOM" was the masterpeice, where he addresses his struggle to prove himself worthy of his stardom to the younger "boys at M.T.V", and of course that "sometimes the clothes do NOT make the man", so come on y'all, and help George "take these eyes and make them true!" Yeah GEORGE! Big shouts out for that gem!
