335 – George Michael – Fastlove (1996)
Written by George Michael
Produced by George Michael & Jon Douglas
Label – Virgin/Dreamworks
A sumptuous bass groove, insistent mid tempo rhythm and Michael’s intelligent use of vocal harmonics make this one of Michael’s most memorable songs. The sampled snatch of Patrice Rushen’s “Forget Me Nots” is a masterstroke and he and producer Jon Douglas weave the two songs into one with an immaculate mixing job that leaves room for every musical element to be heard clearly and occupy its own distinct space.
