George you are so fabulous!!
Did Sony break George Michael?......
where is the George Michael that wrote these songs. Dead?
"it's hard to love...but so much to hate"
I had completely forgotten about this song. I think I hadn't heard it since 1990 at least. I used to sing it along with the lyrics sleeve... it still gives me bumps.
"These are the days of the open hand..." , Because they are unemployed...ran out of money...and hope. "The Rich declare themselves poor.."... Sounds like he foresaw the current economic war of the rich on the poor. Gifted.
sensual voice! rrrrrrrhhhhhh!
I will never ever get tired of hearing this Megamasterpiece; it shall haunt me to the grave, and I won't have it any other way. Its opening acoustics symbolizes that kingdom has come!
never fails, whenever i hear this song,I get so emotional
@radisc11 utterly brilliant !
@Scooby125152 that will be his undoing !
this song is wonderful...... i love george micheal you re in my mind and my heart... its number one
Requiescat in pace.
Notice the frame at 3:08. Priceless!
@wiseandclear - here here! they are lunatics brainwashed from an early age!
Now, with this video, the song has been perverted, like church is perverting everything.
@Scooby125152 could you please do the preaching in church? If I want to hear fairytales I'll go see a Disney-movie, lunatic.
this one really mekes me ponder
Jesus - He is effing brilliant. I heard this for the first time 20 years ago, but i'm listening to it now and i'm crying. OK - i am feeling a bit emotional!!!, but what a song...seeing him in October this year - can't wait, and i'm not even a wolly woofter!!
Seeing President Obama in this Megamasterpiece video praying is simply magnificient!
Stand in line, pick a number, my number is infinity +1!
If I ever meet Sir Lord George Michael, I would ask Him," What the hell makes a man write a song like this with the human race in the crosshair?"
Can someone help me out with a song?
I'm quite sure the song is by George Micheal, not sure of the title, but i no some of the words/melody.
Its a slow song, quiet atmospheric.
And one of the lyrics are; "Waiting for the day, that you'll still be mine". "I will love you". not to sure of the rest! ;/
I want the title of this track for a slide show I'm currently doing, and the songs mood fits the video perfectly!
@ABAisSCIENCE Prayer has not been shown to have any kind of efficacy, outside of helping people cope emotionally. In terms of actually resolving real problems, working towards a solution, as opposed to praying about it, is always the best strategy.
@slimbugger yeah i wish music was this good nowadays.
This is a beautiful song, but what I think it does express is not the need to pray, but actually how futile prayer is. Despite how much we pray, children die of starvation, rape occurs every minute, someone is murdered, people lose their jobs, and people are perpetually succumbing to disease. Ultimately we must resolve our own problems instead of sheepishly whining to an imaginary friend. As the saying goes "Two hands working are worth more than a thousand clasped in prayer."
This song is very deep...makes ya think. It's my favorite song by him.
trop belle chansson et trop belle homme
Amazing and really stunning song from legendary George Michael. I miss the 80's and early 90's - best era in music industry (George, Madonna, Bryan Adams, Whitney Houston, Belinda Carlisle, Tina Turner, Sandra, Cher, Michael & Janet Jackson, Cyndi Lauper, A-HA, Paula Abdul, Laura Branigan, Depeche Mode, Enigma, Sade and many others). What a good times & memories!
'Praying For Time' is one of my favorites from George Michael
nice video, great song
This is probably his best song on a brilliant album. It's such a deep and honest album, everything else since has been no where near this quality. Been waiting 20 years but it never comes.
@lovley7000 very true..
john lennon would have loved
mais Jesus menos religião... é o que o mundo precisa!
Religion poisons everything.
No! The KEY to this song is the way it plays on the ALBUM- remember those things? or even the CD!
This is the first song- Very hopeless, and desperate. What comes next- "FREEDOM! I won't let you down! I won't Give you up. Gotta have some Faith- it's the one Good thing that I GOT!"
See right there- I know the only one to Save us through FAITH could be Jesus- The whole album is a concept album- step back and analyze it from His perspective- PEACE!
God Bless George and All people!
....that will fight the evil Mr G W Bush is and promotes, and we will fight it to the very end of time. Remember that, you servants of the dark side!!
...(not the satanic masonic light) and seek true forgiveness for his abominable crimes, but I doubt it.
Once born a snake, always a snake. However, do not despair, there are others that exist in this world....
...forced by wider social expectations and convention to participate in something Godly - against his wishes or will!
I truly hope this pathetic man can turn from the dark side and see the true light ..
Sorry but George Bush ain't no Christian. Take a real closer look at 3.32. This man (if you can call him that!) is mimicking what he thinks he should look like piety in this situation. Additionally, his face reflects that of a tortured soul...
I just posted the promo single for this song on ebay. Item number 280456926281
I like the concept of everyone praying, it fits the song, which is outstanding of course. I've done my own homage to this song on my page, please check it out.
Agree or not! This song's truly a masterpiece!!! Fantastic!!!!
Carrie underwood sang it better... the music is louder than the voice here so 4 me it's hard 2 appreciate the meaning of the song bcuz the music is way 2 distracting.
-sryy george fans
Yes, this song does bring us back so much memories!!
