Rating the Pop Hits of ’88: George Michael’s “Faith” A-

Entertainment Weekly has an article on the pop hits of 1988.  The page on George Michael’s “Faith” ends with an A- rating. In part, it says:

“I don’t want to give the pipe organ too much credit, but I do enjoy it. And those snappy, biting lyrics are just a blast to sing, and — there! — such lovely but not overwhelming harmonies pop up from time to time. Listen real close now and discover that bass line working overtime. There is so much to hear, and I guess that’s it: Unlike the chucka-chucka sameness of Harrison’s upcoming contribution, everything in ”Faith” just moves around and lights up more, like the inside of a super-fun pinball machine. With a giant round ass shaking on top.”
