Monday Melody: Careless Whisper (George Michael)

Since George Michael died today (f*ck you, 2016!) I thought I’d use one of his songs for this week’s Monday Melody.  Careless Whisper (released in 1984) is probably my favorite George Michael tune.   Now it’s touched with sadness for me, but is still a classic.

  1. I was shocked when I heard the news. I’m so sad. Thank you for choosing this song, it’s one of my favourites and it just fits.

    • I was shocked too. I was just reading about George Michael and he wrote this song when he was only 17! He was also only 21 or so in this video. Both his songwriting and demeanor were very mature and adult, about very complex emotions. Now try to imagine Justin Beiber writing a lyric like “guilty feet have got no rhythm” when he was 17. I can’t.
      This wasn’t one of George Michael’s favorite songs. He said he felt like it was shallow and felt sad that so many people can relate to it.
