Tru Faith

George Michael covers New Order

George Michael covers New Order

The above video is George Michael‘s odd yet infectious new single. It is a cover of the classic New Order techno-pop gem “True Faith,” a song released in 1987. “True Faith’s” always been my favorite New Order song. It’s aged well and it’s lyrics are dark and moody. The song in my eyes always summed up what it was like being gay as a kid. New Order’s video for the song was modern and Bauhaus inspired. It fused primary colored cartoon characters with ballet. The characters fought one another too.
