George Michael est interviewé  par Paul Gambaccini et interprète 3 chansons.





EDITH AND THE KINGPIN
"Joni Mitchell "



The big man arrives
Disco dancers greet him
Plainclothes cops greet him
Big man, small town, fresh lipstick glistening
Sophomore jive
From victims of typewriters
The band sounds like typewriters
The big man he's not listening
His eyes hold Edith
His left hand holds his right
What does that hand desire
That he grips it so tight

Edith in the ring
The passed-over girls are conferring
The man with the diamond ring is purring
All claws for now withdrawn
One by one they bring
His renegade stories to her
His crimes and his glories to her
In challenge they look on
Women he has taken grow old too soon
He tilts their tired faces
Gently to the spoon

Edith in his bed
A plane in the rain is humming
The wires in the walls are humming
Some song-some mysterious song
Bars in her head
Beating frantic and snowblind
Romantic and snowblind
She says-his crime belongs
Edith and the Kingpin
Each with charm to sway
Are staring eye to eye
They dare not look away
You know they dare not look away





FOR THE LOVE OF YOU
" Isley Brothers "




Driftin' on a memory
There ain't no place I'd rather be
Than with you, yeah
Lovin' you, well...my baby
Day will make a way for night
All we'll need is candlelight
And a song
Soft and long (soft and long)

Glad to be
Here alone with a lover unlike no other
Sad to see
A new horizon slowly comin' into view

I wanna be livin'
For the love of you, yeah
All that I'm givin'
Is for the love of you

Lovely as a ray of sun
That touches me when the mornin' comes
Feels good to me, yeah yeah
My love and me, well

Smoother than a gentle breeze
Flowin' through my mind with ease
Soft as can be, yeah
My love and me (hmm hmm)

I Love to be
Riding the waves of your love, enchanted with your touch now
And it seems to me
That we could sail together in and out of our mystery

I wanna be living
For the love of you, yeah, yeah
All that I'm giving
Is for the love of you

I wanna be living
Living, yeah

Don't you know that I

Driftin' on a memory





PRAYING FOR TIME
" George Michael "






Do you think we have time?
Do you think we have time?

These are the days of the open hand
They will not be the last
Look around you
These are the days of the beggars and the choosers

This is the year of the hungry man
Whose place is in the past
Hand in hand with ignorance
And legitimate excuses

The rich declare themselves poor
When most of us are not sure
If we have too much
But we'll take our chances
'Cause God's stopped keeping score
I guess that somewhere along the way
He must have let us all how to play
Turned his back and all God's children
Crept out the back door

And it's hard to love, there's so much to hate
Hanging on to hope
When there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above say it's much too much too late
Then maybe we should all be praying for time

Do you think we have time?
Do you think we have time?

These are the days of the empty hand
Oh you hold on to what you can
And charity is a coat you wear twice a year
This is the year of the guilty man
Your television takes a stand
And you find that what was over there is over here

So you scream from behind your door
Say what's mine is mine and not yours
I may have too much but I'll take my chances
'Cause God's stopped keeping score
So now you're laying on the things they sold you
Did you cover your eyes when they told you
That he can't come back
‘Cause he has no children to come back for
It's hard to love there's so much to hate
Hanging on to hope when there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above say it's much too late
So maybe we should all be praying for time

Do you think we have time?
Do you think we have time?
Please give us time
