    Hahaha, Wham for me just wrote the most irritatingly plastic and at the same time catchy songs, that's what really irritates me. They're songs which once you hear it intrude over the PA system at the local shops or at some party or something, they're gonna stick around in your head for weeks on end, while at the same time coming across to me as having absolutely no feeling or passion to them - just completely generic, which has never resonated with me at all :D

    Also, I believe bands like Wham and Culture Club are fore-runners to the current craze of performing all your music on computers and other electrical gadgets, which in my mind really defeats the point :grinthumb.

    I can hit buttons on a computer with skill, maybe I should make an album :oyea:

    But yeah, that's my view on George Michael and Wham. I know I didn't mention Michael's solo career, but same thing applies. And I pick on George Michael a bit because I can't remember the other Wham dude's name :heheh:

    Plus, those shorts he wore on "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go"s video are a blight on humankind, IMHO :D

    I loved Culture Club! I remember the first time I saw Boy George, I argued with someone that he was a girl. Gawd he was gorgeous.


    Church of the Poison Mind. I always like this song.

    I like Culture Club too. I also like George Michael. I think both Georges (particularly the Michael one) are very good singers.

    Also I'm quite happy with your list Magic, though if we did have a strip I'd take "Once Bitten Twice Shy" out because I hate what Great White did with that song. Other than that though it's fantastic. :D

    Those four-panel Dolfin shorts were made for girls back in the 80's, not guys. But they looked *great* on chicks... as did the bikinis! :heybaby:

    I was just curious whose list it was because the title of the thread didn't specify. It wasn't my intention to pick you or your list apart. Sorry if you got that impression from my post.

    Magic- I liked the majority of your list.I am glad to see Night Ranger on it but I would replace Sister Christian with Don't Tell Me You Love Me or (You Can Still) Rock In America:grinthumb
    Also glad to see some .38 Special on there.
