George Michael’s Father Figure was his first solo single that failed to reach the top ten in his home country of the UK, falling in the middle of a seven-song run in which all of those songs performed better in the US than the UK.

The song was originally intended to be a dance track with an uptempo beat, but while Michael was playing with his mix of the song, he turned off the snare drum track and discovered that he like the song better that way. At this point he decided to remix the song into its slower version that we know and love.
