“Michael” is a song by Franz Ferdinand and was the fourth single released from their debut self-titled album. The song was notable for its homoerotic lyrics such as “stubble on my sticky lips” and “beautiful boys on a beautiful dancefloor”.
The singer, Alex Kapranos, stated in an interview to the UK magazine Boyz that the song was written about two friends of his — “It was one night when me and the band were out with friends from Glasgow, and we went to this warehouse dance party thing called Disco X. It was a very debauched night and these two friends got it together in a very sexy way.”[1] The song was released as a single in the UK on August 16, 2004.
