Queen & George Michael – Somebody to love

Vanochtend las ik de Twitter timeline van George Michael. Er bleken wat mensen verward te zijn over de singel Let her Down Easy. Is die opname nou wel of niet live? George zelf gaf tekst en uitleg. Wat blijkt? De opname is live, maar omdat de Britse radiostations geen opnamen meer uitzenden waarop je enthousiast publiek hoort, is dat publiek eruit gemixt. Hij vindt het raar en is vooral blij dat die ‘regel’ een aantal jaar geleden nog niet gold. “Dat zou me twee nummer 1 hits hebben gekost”, aldus George. Ik heb het mini-album Five Live er meteen weer bij gepakt. Inclusief juichend publiek.

This morning I was reading George Michael’s Twitter timeline. It turned out that some people were confused: is George’s single Let her Down Easy a live recording or not? George clears things up. The British radiostations won’t play any singles with a live audience on it. Let her down easy is indeed a live recording, but the audience was taken off it. George is very happy that the radiostations didn’t have any problem with it years ago. That would have cost him two number one hits. Reason enough for me to listen to Five Live today. Complete with a screaming audience.
