Online Auction Description

Artist Name: GEORGE MICHAEL
Title: ''I WANT YOUR SEX'' with orig Full Color pic sleeve
In 1987,George Michael was said to be the biggest superstar on Earth & he caused one
of the biggest controversies ever,simply by using one word that's practically common
place in today's music.
Along with 1982's ''Sexual Healing,'' by Marvin Gaye,George's ''I WANT YOUR
SEX'',marks one of the first times a song with the word ''SEX'' became a chart topper.
By now you all know it as a catchy little 80's pop song,with lyrics that are practically
child-like compared to some of today's songs.Even at a time when stars like Madonna
were getting famous singing ''Like A Virgin,'' radio was not quite ready for a song with
the word 'SEX'' in it.

Controversy exploded worldwide when the BBC banned the song from play in 1987.
Some US radio stations refused to play the song until 9 p.m., or opted to play a
toned-down version,using the word ''love'' instead of ''SEX.'' Legendary radio
personality & host of American Top 40 Casey Kasem refused to say the name of the
song during his show,calling it ''the new George Michael single.''

You have to keep in mind,this song was released at a time when the entertainment
community & the media were talking a lot about AIDS.Some critics accused Michael
of carelessly promoting casual sex.

Michael countered claiming the song was not about casual sex at all,but about one
commitment,love and passion.He released an official statement during the height of
the controversy.

''The media has divided love and sex incredibly.The emphasis of the AIDS campaign
has been on safe sex,but the campaign has missed relationships.It's missed
emotions.It's missed monogamy.'I Want Your Sex' is about attaching lust to love,not
just to strangers.''

Michael back then,in his leather jacket and
signature 5 o'clock shadow made all the rounds on the talking head shows of the day,
defending the so-called controversial lyrics.He even made a safe-sex ''PSA'' that MTV
required to be played before the video.

Eventually the controversy gave way to the sheer popularity of the song (or perhaps
the controversy fueled the success of the song),which went on to become one of the
biggest hits of the 80's.It peaked at # 2 on the U.S. charts and #3 on British charts,
clearing the way for a flurry of singles off of 'Faith'. It sold more the 10 million
copies,and to this date has sold nearly 30 million copies worldwide.

Some credit the song with opening the airwaves up to broader spectrum of lyrical
material.A few years later Color me Badd's ''I
Wanna Sex You Up'' hit the airwaves with little or no real controversy.In addition
Prince,who had often been forced to relegate some of his racier song material to
b-sides,wound up charting big with sexually laced songs.

And by the standards of today,the song seems tame & kind of silly,if you think about it.
Seriously,if Eminem busted out lyrics like ''I want your sex,come Oon,'' people would
probably just giggle.

But the bottom line is,it's a great song.

If you have a regular turntable,you will need the plastic
accessory that sits in the middle of the single to play this.
The picture sleeve and 45 record pictured in the listing are the ones you will receive.
NOTE! There may be wear on the record that does not show well in the picture.
