Good morning and Happy Friday!  Since Friday is my favorite day of the week, I've saved my favorite George Michael song for today's post.  Freedom 90 (for those of you who may have wondered, the 90 in the song was thrown into the title so as to distinguish this song from a previous Wham! song also called Freedom) is Michael's only bona fide anthem, with a chorus that you just can't help but belt out when you take a listen.

The music video for Freedom 90 is uniquely iconic, as well.  At the time, George was said to be struggling with his own fame and preferred not to make an appearance in it, opting for several top models of the day to appear instead, lip-syncing the tune.  Throughout the video we see supermodels Naomi Cambell, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Tatjana Patitz, Christy Turlington, John Pearson, Mario Sorrenti, Scott Benoit, Todo Segalla, and Peter Formby striking poses and singing along in what you could imagine is a visually stunning six minutes.  The concept worked, as the vid to this song is one of George's most memorable ever.  So without further adieu, check out the inspirational Freedom 90...
