VIDEO OF THE WEEK: GEORGE MICHAEL – ‘FAITH’

September 23, 2019

Arguably the video that cemented the image of the post-Wham! George Michael.

The ‘Faith’ promo was directed by Andy Morahan who’d previously helmed the videos for ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go’, ‘Everything She Wants’, and ‘Last Christmas’.

Here we find George stubbled and grown-up, in the moment he properly crossed over into the realm of adult desires.

This was largely achieved thanks to a look that owes to the classic biker image of aviator sunglasses, Levis jeans, cowboy boots and leather jacket.

Combine that with one of his best-loved songs and the effect transcends the years.
