    I've never heard this version, I only know the live version from the "Music From The Edge Of Heaven" album. It reminds me of the song "Tonight Is The Night" by Betty Wright in that I didn't even know there was a studio version until years later. I had only heard the live version of Betty's song. In the case of "Blue", I didn't know the song was this early, the "Edge Of Heaven" came out in 1986. This must be a b-side or something, because it's not on any of their albums.

    I stumbled upon this clip about a week ago, first time ever I've ever heard the studio version with the verses included

    Blue was the B-side to Club Tropicana back in 82-83, Wham!'s 4th single - it is included on the vinyl version of "The Final" too - thing is thou, the studio version is pretty much a Dub version (no verses, just the back vocals and it ends off with the chorus repeated until fade out).

    George has done this track live thou several times, one of my favorite tracks

    "The Final" wasn't released in the USA. There was a VHS tape called "The Final" that had a few music videos on it though, but not an album.

    Too bad it wasn't released, not that anyone was missing out thou - it was basiclly a compilation of their 12" mixes, including the tracks from "Music from the Edge of Heaven"..

    This is the version on the "Edge Of Heaven" album, but on the album he says "This is a song that's very personal to me. It's called Blue" at the beginning.
