Andrew Ridgeley, Andrew Ridgley, George Michael discussed on Milk Crates and Turntables. A Music Discussion Podcast


Song, wham, 1984. Freedom. No. That came later. The wake me up before you go go. Oh, God. Yeah. I had a joke there, but I'll leave you alone. George Michael's inspiration from the song was a scribbled note left by his wham partner Andrew ridgeley for Andrew ridgley's parents. Originally intended to read, wake me up before you go. But without actually blah, who cares? Andrew originally, you know, kind of a musical joke. $40 million. I told you, I said that to you. Maybe 60 million. People I said, Andrew, people laughed at him. I said, that dude laughed all the way to he's still laughing all the way to the back. I'd be like, you can make fun of me. Good for him. Yeah, yeah. Like you said, what's it like to be the other half of wham? I said, it's very rich. Absolutely. It's very rich. And the other half of this. Well, okay, on this day in 2003, George got any hot sauce. Shut up. You get something for Christmas, maybe. So what's got the IT guy? Maybe. On this day in 2003, George Michael signed a new contract with the record company, took the court in 1993. The singer resigned to Sony in a deal that included his extensive back catalog. Michael had failed. In his court ranga with Sony after accusing it of professional slavery, his contract was bought out by virgin records. On this day in 2007, the eagles were number one in the U.S. album chat with long road out of Eden, the band 7th studio album, and first since 1979, on the stay in 2010, Patti Smith won the national book award for her and went for her memoir, just kids. Who cares? Great, no, no, no, no, not, not who kids. That is a great book. Yeah. Go read it again. No, Scott, Scott. Okay, great, great book. I listen. If you don't want to read it, that's fine.
