UK Music Charts -- George Michael On Top
George Michael is having a grand time. After repeated arrests for being slumped in his car high on pot or fiddling with strange men in wooded areas and the such, Michael is back to doing what he does best: performing. He claims to feel recording new music seems unlikely but that he'll keep doing concerts for the rest of his life. His UK tour is selling like hotcakes and his new greatest hits compilation is #1 on the album charts. That's even more impressive since his LAST greatest hits compilation -- "Ladies and Gentlemen: The Best Of George Michael" was a MASSIVE career-peak for him. Another hits package was the last thing the UK needed but Michael delivered anyway. On the singles chart, (mostly) reunited boy band Take That debut at #4 with their new single. It's a pity Robbie Williams won't join them for a show or two. He doesn't need them but it would have been a friendly gesture.
