Faith

This song hails from George Michaels debut album and was not originally going to be released as a single mainly because the original recording had no guitar solo and was too short. So once George Michael realized the song would likely do well as a single, a guitar solo was added to the track.

The song reached #1 in the US, Canada, Australia and #2 in the UK.
