  • Lou from Penna George is the most amazing guy on this earth.
  • Victoria Ana-tolian Semenenko 02.10.1976 from UkraineActually "Amazing" like "American angel" too are about Alexandra's logic as also exposed at the end of the "Pretty woman" story of 1990.
  • Viktoria Semenenko from UkraineThis song was written in 1998 just not long after his beloved mother death. So it is about a hardkiss of his baby means me as his Victory he hoped.
  • Viktoria Semenenko from UkraineIt's completely stupid to say like his music is about gay relations and this song especially not about. Yes, in his interview to MTV in 2004 he really says that wrote a song after beginning a new relationship in his life but it was just about surviving. So lyrics are obviously heterosexual!
  • Viktoria Semenenko from UkraineActually in his interview to MTV in 2004 he said this song was written 1999 and apparently it was about a virtual hard kiss of a girl 1998. He also found this song very positive.
  • Mary from Phoenix, AzHere's a comment...I love George Michael. George...if ya ever wanna NOT be gay...please call me. You are soooo hot!
  • Amy from Dallas, TxI love George Michaels music. Hes so talented
  • Galina from New London, CtThis song is pretty good. Oh, and this section needs more comments.
