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.

In some ways they taught me about myself. This blog is about all that. Not all my articles will be about NPD, BPD or other personality disorders or mental conditions. I pretty much write about whatever's on my mind at the moment. So there's something for everyone here. Blogging about stuff is crack for my soul. It's self therapy, and hopefully my insights and observations may help others too.

      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.

    Such a shock to lose another musical talent. I grew up listening to all of his hits back in the 80’s & 90’s.

  8. So many places today were playing George Michael songs in our local shopping centre. When I was in our supermarket they were playing his version of “Don’t let the sun go down on me”. So sad!
