Spinning the Wheel
George Michael already put out one greatest hits album in 1998, but quite a lot has happened to the U.K.'s biggest pop star in the decade since (not all of it involving public scandal). More importantly, when you've been in the biz for 25 years, you probably warrant more than one retrospective. All the songs you love, including his Wham! hits, are here, remastered for TwentyFive's 2006 U.K. release, plus his recent work (check out "Shoot the Dog," his critique of Tony Blair and the Iraq War) and a handful of new tracks, including a duet of "Heal the Pain" with Paul McCartney.
