He Could Be A Father Figure... If He Adopts!!!
Well, at least this is a marked improvement from his earlier endeavors. This is where his work started to get pretty good, if not his best. This album in particular was a masterpiece at the time, and remains quite a classic today. Men hadn't shown their sexuality as overtly before this. Justin Timberlake probably would have been more of a shock these days if it hadn't been for George Michael. I mean, it's not like he's all naked and dancing around or anything, but even so this is an incredibly sexual video, not to mention the song "I Want Your Sex" is on the same album. Also his fashion and his looks are a world away from his Wham! days.
Isn't it funny how if you're gay all you gotta do is hire a model and make a video with her and suddenly you're a straight sex symbol known the world over. I guess humanity is just like that sometimes, all wrapped up in the image while the reality is something just the opposite. Anyway, isn't the song cool?!?
It's kind of a ballad and as such, a ballad really needs to be special to get me interested. I'm pretty hooked and I have been since I heard the song. The way it starts slow and steady, but hip and slick at the same time, then picks itself up and becomes more upbeat is brilliant. A sample of it has been used in a brilliant song by P.M. Dawn, made when sampling was just starting to pop up in Pop.
