  • Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Tatjana Patitz, Christy Turlington and Cindy Crawford appeared on this UK cover of Vogue magazine in the January, 1990 issue. After George Michael saw it, he was determined to get the same five models for his "Freedom '90" video, which he did.

  • Viktoria Semenenko from Ukraine"I've never thought myself as a gay artist"

    But talking about a fantasy George also meant he never felt like it was he in Wham! period especially for "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go" video. But from our destinies point of view I just really didn't belong to him but Alexander Severe so it's obvious why he wanted to stick around.
  • Freedomvelez from Cebu City,mandaue City, PhilippinesMy name is freedom so i must be proud of may name thank you george michael what a incredible song maybe i want to give thanks and give all that i know yes this me .....
  • Heather from Madison, WiI absolutely love this song and video......

    .......very liberating to shake your money-maker too.....
  • Vinman from Casselberry, FlAwesome song and video, but how can you forget
    Cindy Crawford!!!!!in the bath tub no less.
  • Lance from Clinton Corners, UgandaThe best video of all time, and one of the best songs. The German model Tatjana Patiz is so wonderful on both the eyes and her lip synching! I have Listen Without Prejudice and the song is only listed as "Freedom." I have heard that Micheal added "90" to the title so that it would not be confused with the song by Wham! with the same title. Yeah, like that would ever happen!
  • Jon from St. Paul, MnI don't know what it is about this song. But I just love it soooooo much. It is one of those songs where I could listen to it over and over again and not get tired of. I think it is also a fun song to sing along with and it has a great beat. I think George Michael is such a talented and amazing singer :)
  • Mike from Santa Barbara, CaThis song is best remembered by the number of supermodels who lip sync the lyrics. They are Linda Evangilista, Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Tatjana Patitz, and Cindy Crawford.
  • Mjn Seifer from Not Listed For Personal Reason, EnglandThe only thing I don't like about this song is that people keep thinking I mean this when I tell them my favourite Wham! song.
  • Sum Sum from New Delhi, Indiasame here, its one of my fav song and music video as well. George featured all the top chic models in the video. No one can beat him. his every video is very different.
  • Sascha from Stuttgart, GermanyIt's a great song that makes you feel that George had just found to himself both artistically and personally. His whole "Listen Without Prejudice" album (1990) is so wonderfully authentic and reflected George's hunger to free himself from certain stereotypes and from his past. He was just ready to be himself and to find love and happiness.
  • Leon from Waterbury, CtOne of my favorite videos and a fantastic song.
  • Craig from Madison, WiOne of the hottest videos of all time. Makes me stammer just thinking about it.
