Pause-and-Playlist: The Essential George Michael and Wham!

We hate it when our pop icons die … especially at a young age.

George Michael, who died Christmas Day at age 53, leaves behind an incredible body of work, from his days leading Wham! to his hugely successful solo career. He was reportedly working with English producer Naughty Boy on a comeback album, hoping to release it in 2017.

We will always have his music … like these infectious, thought-provoking songs.

You have been loved, George.
