Simple new challenge: name your favorite song of the year, by any artist. Letís be flexible. The song may be from the year it appeared on an album, or the year it was released as a single.

My very obvious pick: UTEOTW - U2

Freedom 90 George Michael

Was this not 90?

It charted big in early 1991, released mid December 1990 in the US as a single.

But technically, yes, itís a 1990 song.

As I said, this is all in good fun and we should be flexible. Charts are indeed a factor. Freedom 90 was actually a big success in 1991, as you correctly mention.
