You will recall that I questioned what all this work on
YM would do to my grades a while back? Last year's
GPA -- before YM -- was 2.7 (68%). And with YM?
3.6 (78%). Mom has stopped griping about you guys

Hi Amanda and Everyone!
Here's some news from jolly old England! George made
a surprise LIVE appearance on this week's Top Of The
Pops - his first time in their studios for 11 years!! He
chatted briefly to Geri Spice about the Ivor Novellos,
and then introduced the video for Waltz Away Dreaming,
saying that it was a new singer, a new song, a new
record label (which just happened to be his own) and a
video that he thought was as beautiful as the lady it was
written for - "my Mum". He looked fantastic, dressed all
in black, with dark glasses and a tiny AIDS pin in his

The charts have just been announced. Waltz Away
Dreaming has entered the Network Chart at No.10. Well
done AEgean!!

Love, Beverley.

Did someone ask for the lyrics for Star People '97. If so,
I have them. Email me and I'll get them for you. Also, if
anyone is loking for Star People '97, the Older EP, or
JTAC, there's a place around here (Dallas) where I can
get it.

By the way, has anyone heard Prince's version of I Can't
Make You Love Me. I searched everywhere for GM's
version, but I hate to say I think Prince's is better. But
that's okay because I wll always love anything that GM

"..I'm going down, and I pray to be forgiven.."

By the way, great job Amanda. I truly thought I was the
only one.

Isn't it awesome to think that GM actually reads what we
say about him. He must know then how much he's
missed in the United States. George, if you're reading,
I NEED you to tour. We all do!!! I know I have backup for

Hey you Europeans,

does anyone know where to get "Waltz away Dreaming" if
you are living outside the UK, as it does not look like it's
going to be released in (the rest of) Europe?

Help! Excuse my computer ignorance but, I'm having
trouble accessing the Aegean Site. I get nothing but
GM's picture and the original message that was posted
when they first came on line. Am I missing something?
Also, I only have internet access from work, and
unfortunately this computer does not have a soundcard.
So I've tried downloading vids and other files and trying
them out on my home computer. Can't make it work
though. Where should I be to open these files? I'd
really appreciate anyone's advice. I'm missing out on
so much!! Thanks!!

Hey I have an idea; let's start a Yogmael CHAT ROOM
where we would meet every so often, certain days of
the week at certain times. Then we could talk about
George and invite him to chat with us. Since he reads
our mail I am sure he would love to get online with us.
That would be the best!!!! Let's hope!!!!

(Well, up until the last few months, there used to be
regular AOL chats, and I know there's a YM IRC channel
that meets -- or used to -- Sunday afternoons EST. We
have been meaning to restart -- since Dan stopped --
the AOL chats though. AG)

Yogmael #175 was so great to read. We all want to
have an opportunity to talk with George the way Jonathan
did. Well since this ad said George reads our Yogmael, I
thought I would send George a poem in hopes that he
reads this too:

After All These Years
** A poem for George Michael from Sherah**

No one could have told me yesterday
That I would one day feel this way
Such stars had never made my day
No one's made me want to say


Careless Whisper lit the spark
Although Freedom left it's mark
Bad Boys surely turned me around
If You Were There had the sweetest sound

Credit Card Baby had me singin
Heart Beat only left mine ringin
I turned a Different Corner only to find
The original Freedom still on my mind

Since the 80's have brought about
A man called "George Michael" I have no doubt
Faith has kept me a fan thus far
And now Yog knows just who we are

As long as music fills the air
As long as people everywhere
Want to hear a heartwarming sound
Forever, I want to see George stay around

You REALLY made my day!. I had my e-mail on,
because I was expecting a message from my son
who has flown to England. When I got your
message about talking to GM my heart went up
into my throat. I HOPE, since he reads YM, he'll
see just how many of us in the USA are very
frustrated because we cannot buy what all of you
from the UK are buying. I just hope my son brings
me bunches of GM stuff from England.

Definitely OLDER,

Definitely gives me hope.

To All,

I am a little confused. Is there another version of SP
'97 besides the "hidden track"? What else is on the

(I currently have only the SP'97 UK import, what I
think Josh said was that the DreamWorks version
differed from the Virgin release. You see, when
DreamWorks released SP here, there was no SP'97,
and so now as the '97 version is released in the UK,
they are scrambling to add it to the second pressing
of the single. AG)

If so, could you please forward me the last night's one,

Also, for the interest of us, GM's Latin American fan's
MTV Latino is re-airing the Unplugged show Wedenesday

Congratulations Jonathan !!!
I was so happy to read "your interview"...

Just a little question (as I'm not speaking english perfectly):
What does "Yeah, it's a cosher one!" mean ?

(Depending on how accepting he is of his minute Judaism,
and for as mildly aware of mine as I am, kosher basically
means right or OK -- as in the Hebrew for right, "kasher".
Dictionary definitions are along the lines of pure and clean
according to Jewish ordinances. So I guess, in a sense,
we've been blessed. AG)

Thanks for helping me.

God, that hurts. Congrats on all people who live beyond

I just found this article in the June 1st Daily Mirror and
thought everyone might be interested.


GEORGE Michael has undergone an interesting change -
his night time habits have altered. For those of us on the
nightbeat, George was one who could invariably be relied
upon to put in an appearance at least once a week in
some of the noisier discos doing what most men do in
such places. But of late Mr Michael has been conspicuous
by his absence, and I find myself in a position to disclose
why - he prefers these days to go to Crockford's, a gaming
establishment where music is banned. Generous to a fault,
the star hands envelopes bulging with cash to his mates
and then sits back to gamble by proxy.

Hi Amanda-

I know you've heard this a million times, but you are doing
a great job!

(It's not that hard when you've got the greatest artist in the
world as your subject and consequently, the greatest fans
in the world to contribute. AG)

I just wanted to tell Jonathan Flowers that he is the luckiest
guy. I was so excited to hear that GM actually reads
YOGMAEL. I told all my friends about Jonathan and how
he got to talk to GM. It made me feel like I was actually
linked in some way to meeting him. Anyway- too bad he
didn't except the offer for coffee. Oh well! :)

Thanks for all you hard work,

Week 22, 02 June 97

Toby Bourke with George Michael
Hi Everyone!!!!

Just thought that I would let out a little steam. Tonight I
was GM surfing through the net and thought that I would
tour the Aegean site. And You know what? You cannot
do anything there. Why tease us like that? Oh well. I
suppose I will wait, I mean what else can I do? But I do
enjoy visiting all of the other sites, as usual they are
great. At first I thought that I was doing something

wrong, but after several tries and successes with the
Netscape with other sites, I figured out it was not me :-)

Anyway, is there anyone out there who can help Aegean
get there site off and running properly?

(There are times when I can't connect either. Hopefully
all will come together soon... AG)

Best wishes to all of you and I will see you in July.
Getting ready to buy my tickets!!!!
