George Michael: OK, originally Robbie Williams was supposed to nab this number 5 spot. But what is Robbie, if not a younger, brattier, less successful version of George? And Mr. Careless Whisper, who's often landed in the tabloids for his cannabis-smoking, car-wrecking ways, could use some redemption. He's not reuniting Wham!; he has retired from touring. And he's an exceptionally erudite, frank, and funny guy.
