When "I Want Your Sex" was released as a single in 1987, the world was forced to recognize what fans had known all along—George Michael had it. Despite attempts to ban the record in both Britain and the U.S., it skyrocketed to #1 on virtually all of the charts (pop, soul, adult contemporary) and sold more than 1.5 million copies, making it one of the few gold singles of the year.
