George Michael’s Spinning The Wheel is our Song For Sunday this week.
Herbie Hancock’s Watermelon Man has been sampled countless times by the likes of J Dilla, LL Cool J and even Shaq and Madonna. But the artist we’ve selected from that illustrious crowd to feature on our Song For Sunday this week is George Michael with his track Spinning The Wheel. The track was Michael’s third single off his comeback album Older and recounts a lover and their concerns after finding out of their partner’s promiscuity during the AIDS outbreak in the 80s. The Watermelon Man sample can be heard at the start and throughout and the jazzy nature of the song along with the 20s style video echoes the sentiment.
