Songbird loves the 80's: George Michael

So it was the 80's.  Degree in hand, I looked for-- and found -- my first full time job.  And my first apartment.  And a serious romance, one that led to marriage.

And the music...it was so different from what we listened to in the 70's.  Prince.  Madonna.  Cyndi Lauper.  The Bangles.  Hall & Oates. Dire Straights.  Huey Lewis. Duran Duran.

Music that was designed for the hot new medium, the music video.

And no one captured the era more than a British band called Wham!

George Michael's good looks, his dance moves, his fashion sense ... he was made for MTV.

Later he became a champion for HIV/AIDS charities.

He passed away on Christmas Day. 

but the music lives on.
