Cover of Ladies & Gentlemen: The Best of George Michael

From Ladies & Gentlemen: The Best of George Michael and 95 other releases

George Michael was 17 when he wrote this. He was taking the bus to his job as an usher at a cinema. That’s where the reference to “The silver screen” comes from in the first verse.

This was Epic Records first million selling single and it was George Michael’s biggest selling single in the UK, either as a solo artist or with Wham! selling 1,365,995 copies.

I feel so unsure
As I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor
As the music dies something in your eyes
Calls to mind a silver screen and all its sad goodbyes
