About this deal

The album peaked at number one in the UK Albums Chart, and was certified 4× Platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI). The songs are arranged on two complementing discs: the slower, ballady productions are on the first disc ("for the heart"), and the more dancey, poppy numbers are on the second ("for the feet"). The first CD, titled "For the Heart", predominantly contains ballads; the second CD, "For the Feet", consists mainly of dance tunes.

Models Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Tatjana Patitz, Christy Turlington, and Cindy Crawford lip sync the song in place of Michael, who is absent from the video. Promotional music videos for "Faith", "I Want Your Sex" (uncensored version), "Father Figure", "One More Try", "Monkey" and "Kissing a Fool". Nina Simone’s influence also reappears for Wild Is The Wind, Michael’s version far more restrained than the extravagant David Bowie cover found on Station To Station. I t is testament to what a remarkable artist George Michael was when you realise he pulled out one of the finest live performances of his career with the news that his partner Anselmo had been diagnosed with HIV still ringing in his ears.The album contains songs mainly from Michael's solo career and two new songs: " An Easier Affair" and " This Is Not Real Love" (a duet with Mutya Buena, then a member of the Sugababes, and now a member of Mutya Keisha Siobhan). The compilation also includes three tracks specially recorded for the album, most notably his duet with Mary J Blige on the Stevie Wonder classic "As". You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

The one major surprise here is the inclusion of Miss Sarajevo, the only single released by U2 and Brian Eno side project Passengers, which originally featured a guest vocal from Luciano Pavarotti. It is a departure from George's previous style, so be prepared for a slightly dark and melancholy feel to this album, as it is a tribute to his lover who sadly died too young. Michael cited Blige's record company president for pulling the track after Michael's arrest for committing a lewd act. It also peaked at number one on the US Billboard 200 and was certified Diamond for sales of over 10 million copies. It is certified 7 times platinum in the United Kingdom and multi-platinum in the United States, and is Michael's most commercially successful album in his homeland having sold more than 2.he’d already proved himself as a sophisticated balladeer with Careless Whisper and A Different Corner while a subsequent hook-up with Elton John and an emboldening duet with Aretha Franklin showed that Michael was now elevated to the heights of the music world’s biggest stars. This double album (available in CD only) includes 14 songs "for the heart" and 15 songs "for the feet" and it's the first George Michael compilation that was released to celebrate his career from 1984 to 1998. The selection of tracks was chosen by the singer himself and you'll notice that it includes a lot of his biggest hits but also songs that George considered important in his career like "Desafinado" for example, where he sings in portuguese.
