George Michael – Monkey (12″)

monkeyvidFrom 1987 and a US Number 1 from George Michael in 12″ form. So not particularly rare or sort after but nice to revisit. Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis provided the polished production and remix on a song all about drug addiction (The Monkey) Big, olde late 80’s drum sounds and sampled vocals make each track a good insight into what was cutting edge technology for the time.



A Monkey (Extended Version) 8:06
B1 Monkey (Acappella) 3:40
B2 Monkey (Extra Beats) 3:30

  1. If you feel like looking for a RE-UP to take your mind off missing the US after you return from holiday, I heartily recommend this one. Another legend sadly gone too soon, and tragically this song probably has a lot to do with that. But I’d still love to hear the remix skills of Jam & Lewis applied to this classic.
