    Good morning John & Owen. My best gal Sylvia turns 11 today. She’s listened to KEXP nearly every day of those 11years. She’s often the first one to turn on KEXP in the morning. Music is a special language we share as a family. Could you please play one of her favorites, Freedom 90 by George Micheal. With gratitude!! Sarah & Sylvia === George Michael was trying to free himself from the shackles of Sony, which was his record label at the time. They created an image for him to promote his Faith album, and Michael was now trying to distance himself from it. In the video, all the Faith trademarks explode: the jacket, the jukebox, the guitar. Michael was the victim of a Saturday Night Live skit mocking the video.: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=diYAc7gB-0A

    "I just hope you understand Sometimes the clothes do not make the man..." "All we have to see Is that I don't belong to you and you don't belong to me..." -- George Michael was trying to free himself from the shackles of Sony, which was his record label at the time.

    Michael didn't want his image used to promote his 1990 album Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1, but his record label still wanted music videos for MTV. After spotting the January 1990 cover of British Vogue, which featured five of the era's top models — Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, and Tatjana Patitz — Michael had an inspired solution to this dilemma: instead of him appearing in front of the camera, these supermodels could be in a music video for the song "Freedom! '90." Some wrangling was required — the women were heavily booked, and their fees weren't cheap — but all five eventually agreed to appear in the video. And though models being in a music video wasn't a new phenomenon, in the past women had usually been cast in a "girlfriend" role. Here, instead of being appendages, the models were the focus of the video. They, along with lesser-known male models John Pearson and Mario Sorrenti, were the ones lip-syncing lyrics such as "All we have to see is that I don't belong to you, and you don't belong to me." https://www.biography.com/news/george-michael-freedom-90-song-music-video
