This message is for all George Michael fans – a call to action. If you read this, please send them along here – this is the link:
It’s been a while since a George Michael single has done well in the charts. In fact, he hasn’t had a decent hit (as judge by chart position) since Amazing in 2002, and really by George’s standards even that wasn’t errr… amazing. In reality, the last single that George would probably regard as a success in terms of chart position achieved was Outside in 1998.
There are a few reasons why – some of them down to George, some of them down to others. But that doesn’t matter now. George is reputed to have some songs that are potentially monster hit new songs on his hard drive. With the release of True Faith, George is putting his toe in the water of the charts again, and trying something different in terms of how the record is marketed. He really needs the support of his fans now, to make the record a success – that means YOU!
So, if you’re one of the George Michael fans (and I know there are lots) that:
- In 2010 didn’t buy December Song, because you didn’t like it/already had it
- In 2009 didn’t buy December Song, because you didn’t like it/already had it
- In 2006 didn’t buy This Is Not Real Love because you didn’t like it
- In 2006 didn’t buy An Easier Affair because you didn’t like it
- In 2005 didn’t buy John and Elvis Are Dead because you already had it on an album
- In 2004 didn’t buy Round Here because you already had it on an album
Then, please, please please PLEASE go out and buy a copy of True Faith when it’s released – either on CD or on download (or both). It’s a great song, so it’s likely George’s version will be pretty great; and, of course, the proceeds are going to a really great cause. Please tell all your friends to go and get a copy to support the charity, too.
If you can help make George’s version of True Faith a big hit, it will motivate: George to invest more time, effort and money in the promotion of his new music; the people at his new record company to work harder to make George’s music a success all over the world; and also convince the powers that be at more radio stations that George Michael music is relevant to a wide audience.
If you plan on buying True Faith, please leave a message in the comments. Please tell your friends to come here and join the campaign, and leave a message in the comments saying where others can find your links – tell people in forums, tell them on Facebook, tell them on Twitter, tell them in IM chats, tell them in e-mails, tell them in texts!
