Hi all. As you have noticed, I have been including postings to the
Panayiotou family as the lead off posts in the last couple issues, and will continue to
do so, I'm also taking them and copying them to a document I plan to pass onto my
AEgean connection. Anyone who would like to contribute should send in their
message over the next couple days.

Nonetheless, I will certainly add George and his family to my daily

To the Panayiotou Family,
I just wanted to send my love to George and his family. I'm
thinking all day about his Mum and what he is suffering now.
I lost my Mum 5 years ago on 5th March 1992. I loved
her so much and I had to be very strong. I hope, that
your Mum will get better soon.
My love straight from the heart and prayers for your familiy.

Dear all,

I was so sad to hear about George's mom. My mom died from heart disease
almost 2 years ago. Not a day passes without me missing her. My
thoughts and prayers go out to him...if he was half as close to his mom as
I was to mine, he'll need all the prayers he can get to get through the

It's been a sad week since I got to know about Yog's mother and her
pain. I lost my mother because of the cancer two years ago, so I know
how it feels very well. She also had diabetes. I just want George to
know, If he reads this sometime, that his mom is in my prayers and that I
send all my love for him.

I can't help but respond to this very solemn bulletin.

I'm in tears right now. George has brought all of us so much happiness
and joy, and now he is suffering such great pain in losing his beloved
mother at such a young age. We've shared his joy, now we must share his

My most heart-felt condolences go out to George and his family during

Hi Amanda,
I've just get the last Yogmael Bulletin with the sad news about George's
mum, and I hope he could resist this one. I know he's as strong as his
mother was. My thoughts are with him and his family.

Just to say how awful the news of George's mums death is. It's Mothers

something like Mothers Day to tell them how much we love them.

Amanda -

thanks for sending me all the newsletters -- I'm REALLY enjoying catching
up on George !

Is it possible to get a copy of the interview George had with DJ Chris Evans
late in '96 (or early this year)? I noticed on the message board that you
be able to get out a copy. Also, there was an article from Nov.'95 I wanted
read -- are these available somewhere -- I didn't know how to access your
"archives" !

(Both sit in the archives. On AOL, go to keyword and type the URL, it's
The Big Issue was in YM #85, and the Chris Evans interview was a 2 part
YM #74. AG)

There's no hurry, because I know you're busy. Any information would be
appreciated, though.

Thanks again for everything !

Hi Amanda and all Yoggers!

I've recently heared from a director of Sony Music that they plan to release
George Michael's Greatest Hits album later this year. Do you know anything
about that?

(Yup. Lots. George has to deliver three new track to Fony by June. We're
guessing it'll be a Christmas release--meaning October. AG)

Tnx, Al

Fastlove has been picked as the no.1 single in 1996 by a Magazine in

"Who would have thought George could still deliver a classic sounding pop
single after all this time? Fastlove isn't just smooth, slick and memorable,
it feels like it actually brightens up the radio everytime it's played. The
remarkable thing is - it also sounds as if it's effortlessly conceived"

and the Most Underated Album is Older ( what else could it be?)

Last week, a friend of mine bought a CD of Jody Watley. On this CD, there
was a duet with George Michael. The song is called "Learn to say no". It
was recorded in 1987.

(A decent song, but not his best work. AG)

I would like to know if someone has a complete list of George Michael's
Discographie? I've already looked on other G.M. web site but until now I've
found nothing.

(Not sure. AG)

I would like to congratulate you for your weekly contest. It's very funny.

Whoever did the nominations for the (YOGMAEL Honours) awards was mad!
Perhaps that was a little harsh, but hey:

(Then 25 of us are mad! AG)

Where was Wake me Up... in the best Wham track?

(It failed to get even one vote actually. AG)

Where was Fastlove in the best overall song category?

(It got a sole vote--mine. AG)

Why no vid awards - my vote would go to Fastlove!

(For the same reason there is no best B side category, not all people have
access to them. AG)

Maybe the nominators have been eating too much British Beef! But seriously,
I think these awards are a great idea - many thank A!!!

To Wrap it Up:

See ya Monday with issue #112.

See ya Saturday with #111, THE YOGMAEL HONOURS!! I'll accept votes
