Hi all! With this issue I hope to clear the mailbox of YOGMAEL

Also, I am proud to report that the "problem" I have spoken of lately, is
beginning to remedy itself. I'll keep you all posted.

Remember, the YOGMAEL Honours Ballot will be going out sometime in the next
hours. Voting runs for a week only, so please vote promptly.

Hello Amanda I really have been enjoying my Yogmael this past month , it's
great to have something interesting to read finally . My question is : in
one of the latest issues someone mentioned a video/song for "Shake" . What
album is this song from?

(Shake is the second track on Andrew Ridgeley's solo album "Son of Albert"

Hi! I'm Sabrina (Biby for friends), I'm 25 and italian.
I wanna say that this last cd-single is really soft. It's the first time
George sings in another language, isn't it?

(I think so. AG)

I think this another sign that he's getting "older" and he's getting better
every day. He's very professional and can perform every kind of music.
I like very much "Desafinado" and the wonderful version of "I can't make
you love me".
George is really a great artist, there's no doubt on it.


P.S. My e-mail:
"Older" is in 20th position in Italy after 37 weeks of permanence.

Hi! My name is Rhee Black, and I just recently found Yogmail on the
Internet. I do not have a computer at home, only at work. So I borrow
my brother's on the weekends. Keep up the good work!

Question: I read in an issue of Yogmail that Rob Kahane was no longer
George's manager. Did he fire him? If so, why? I thought they were close.

(It had something to do with the whole Fony court case, and a couple hundred
thousand dollars... I have no more info than that. Anyone else? AG)

I did see him on MTV Unplugged, and I can't wait until the next CD is
but it may be a while, eh??? I have not seen any video, except Fastlove
on MTV, rarely. What is up wit was so pleased.
Funny thing though the dance floor emptied once it finished. One more
thing not one man came up to dance.

(I must admit, every time I have been at a bar and that track comes up, it
fills the floor. I have no idea why... AG)

Another time I went out the DJ played a collection of Wham hits that ran
into together. I think the first one was bad boys then into club
tropicana, last christmas, careless whisper etc. Do you know of this CD? I
asked the guy for the name but after having a few drinks I lost it. Can
you let me know. Ta

(I can indeed, it's called Wham!: Dance to the Beat. It's not the real thing
though. I have a copy, I have listened to it twice, and was in convulsions I
found it so funny...I must give it a listen drunk... AG)

Keep up the good work.

Hi Amanda,

You can find the "Behind The Scenes" footage for the Too Funky video,
as well as the video itself, at the end of the Red Hot and Dance video.
It's by SMV (Sony Music Video Enterprises) catalog # 17V-49140.

Sony Music
Entertainment Inc.
P.O. Box 4450
New York, N.Y. 10101

Hope this helps, I'm sure that you can order it from somewhere.

(I've still seen this in the local shops, I guess I'll just have to pick one
up now... AG)

Don't worry about the new fan club Amanda, Yogmael will never die!!!!!!
(Hey, how do you make that joined AE symbol anyhow?)

(Press ALT while punching in 0198 on the number pad. AG)

Thanks for all the hard work involved with making Yogmael, I and am sure
everyone else REALLY appreciates it!

T H A N K Y O U A M A N D A !!!!!!!!



P.S. Have you given any more thought to the ski trip next winter (a' la
Last Christmas?)

(A bit, but my mind is more on the LA trip right now. But of course I will
be planning a Last Christmas weekend for 1998. AG)

P.P.S. If I send you mail at this address ( i.e. to you personaly) do I
still need to write PERSONAL at the top?

(Nope. You can now get creative. The funnier you are, the faster I likely
respond. AG)

I really tried to bite my tongue on this one..honest I did, but REALLY!
This pisses me off! Give the man a break! If they want to talk about his
music...fine...that's what he's about. But he's not Boy George for God's
sake! He's not trying to sell his music with a "look".........still

Hi, Amanda! This is not for posting in Yogmael, actually, but I read your
note in one of the issues that you had the English lyrics and were
interested in the Portuguese lyrics.

(OK, so made it a posting...hope you don't mind. AG)

Here they are, taken from a posting on the Different Corner page music board:

Se voce disser que eu desafino, amor
Saiba que isto em mim provoca imensa dor
So privilegiados tem ouvido igual ao seu
Eu possuo apenas o que Deus me deu
Se Voce insiste em classificar
Meu comportamento de anti-musical
Eu mesmo mentindo devo argumentar
que isto e bossa nova
que isto e muito natural
O que voce nao sabe
Nem sequer pressente
E que os desafinados tambem tem coracao
Fotografei voce na minha Roloflex
Revelou-se a sua enorme ingrat Like the bossa nova, love should swing

We used to harmonize, two souls in perfect time
Now the song is different and the words don't even rhyme
Cause you forgot the melody our hearts would always croon
So what good's a heart that's slightly out of tune

Tune your heart to mine the way it used to be
Join with me in harmony and sing a song of loving
We've got to get in tune again before too long

There'll be no desafinado
When your heart belongs to me completely
Then you won't be slightly out of tune
You'll sing along with me.

Very jazzy, swingy, and upbeat -- hard to believe it's the same song.

Best regards,

Ann H.

P.S. I found a Patrice Rushen CD at the music store the other day -- It's a
reissue/compilation called Patrice Rushen -- Straight From The Heart, and
it's got two different versions of Forget-Me-Nots on it. Funny hearing it
sung by the original artist after listening to Fastlove for so many times!

them in stock, they will gladly order them for you. Hope you enjoy
the information.
Your fellow YOGGER,

do you know of anyone with a copy of his unplugged?

(My last extra copy is spoken for, and as of now, I am making an effort to
get out of the dubbing business. Someone out there may be able to help you.

Is new address?

(This is my personal address, as is is

By the way, do you know anyone who might have a signed album from GM. I will
pay what ever amount. Plus any other memorabilia, like the gloves from his
Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go video?

(Not sure. Nancy, what have you got in the way of autographs? AG)

Thanks a bunch.

Hi Amanda (and all 500 of you avid Yogmael readers):

Since I am having such a hard time finding some of these CDs I want to make a
deal with ANYONE who may be interested. I happen to have access to some
copies of the George Michael Unplugged on CD and I would be more than happy
to trade one of these for any of the following on CD:

Cover to Cover (yeah right...I'm not holding my breath)
The new interview CD
Older EP

**Anything else cool that is not readily available in the US!

I think this is a pretty fair deal. Just let me know if any of you are
