I caught the music video for George Michael's "Monkey" this evening. It was v. entertaining, and interestingly I was struck with its similarity to Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "Relax" as far as having "do it" rhyme with "to it," even using the same melodic bit for those phrases. Anyone else notice this?

80's

I used to sing "Monkey" to annoy my brother. Also, whenever I see the video I sort of wonder how, back in the 80's, we had no idea George was gay. My mother says the same thing about the Village People. Oh well!

Hahah, omg you're right as well, never really thought about it tbh! George Michael is such a FGTH scenester it is frankly quite disgraceful.
