FASTLOVE by George Michael

September 19, 2022

Not many songs make the Billboard charts, and few manage to get played worldwide. “Fastlove” by George Michael is one of those songs that made the artist successful, selling over 450,000 records. The song topped the UK’s single list as his seventh single to ever top the list in that country.

“Fastlove” is a mix of visual effects, hypnotizing beats, and a bold back story, given its release period.

“Fastlove” is a sample of Patrice Rushen’s “Forget Me Nots,” whose back story portrays sex without commitment subtly. It has topped the charts in six countries and peaked at number 8 on the Billboard charts. “Fastlove” received a gold certificate for selling over 450,000 copies in Britain.

Lyrics 

Gotta get up to get down

Gotta get up to get (gotta get up)

Gotta get up to get down

Gotta get up to get down

Gotta get up to get down

Gotta get up to get (gotta get up)

Gotta get up to get down

Gotta get up to get down

Ooh-ooh, baby, baby

Ooh-ooh, baby, baby

Oh, yeah

Ooh-ooh, baby, baby

Ooh-ooh, baby, baby

Looking for some education

Made my way into the night

All that bullshit conversation

Baby, can’t you read the signs?

I won’t bore you with the details, baby

I don’t even wanna waste your time

Let’s just say that maybe

You could help to ease my mind

Baby, I ain’t Mr. Right

But if you’re looking for fastlove

If that’s love in your eyes

It’s more than enough

Had some bad love

So fast love is all that I’ve got on my mind

Ooh-ooh, baby, baby

Ooh, yeah, yeah

Ooh-ooh, baby, baby

What’s there to think about, baby?

Ooh-ooh, baby, baby

Hey, baby, oh yeah

Ooh-ooh, baby, baby

Looking for some affirmation

Made my way into the sun

My friends got their ladies

They’re all having babies

But I just wanna have some fun

I won’t bore you with the details, baby

Gonna get there in your own sweet time

Let’s just say that maybe

You could help to ease my mind

Baby, I ain’t Mr. Right

But if you’re looking for fastlove

That’s love in your eyes

It’s more than enough

Had some bad love

So fast love is all that I’ve got on my mind

Ooh-ooh, baby, baby

Ooh, yeah, yeah

Ooh-ooh, baby, baby

Yeah, what’s there to think about, baby?

Ooh-ooh, baby, baby

Get yourself some lessons in love

Ooh-ooh, baby, baby

Gotta get up to get down

Gotta get up to get down

So close

Gotta get up to get down

Gotta get up to get down

Taste it now, baby

Gotta get up to get down

Gotta get up to get down

So close

Gotta get up to get down

Gotta get up to get down

In the absence of security

I made my way into the night

Stupid Cupid keeps on calling me (stupid Cupid keeps on calling me)

But I see loving in his eyes

I miss my baby (oh yeah)

I miss my baby (tonight)

So why don’t we make a little room in my BMW, babe?

Searching for some peace of mind

Hey, I’ll help you find it

I do believe that we are practicing the same religion

Oh, you really oughta get up now

That’s right (that’s right)

Oh, you really oughta get up

Gotta get up to get down

Gotta get up to get down

Oh yeah

Gotta get up to get down

Gotta get up to get down

Oh yeah

Gotta get up to get down

Gotta get up to get down

Oh yeah

Gotta get up to get down

Gotta get up to get down

Looking for some affirmation

Gotta get up, get down

Gotta get up, get down

Gotta get up, get down

Gotta get up, get down

Gotta get up, get down

Gotta get up, get down
