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.
I just found out George Michael died, at home, at age 53, of an undisclosed illness.
He’s one in a long line of musical icons that 2016 took away from us: first David Bowie, then Prince, then Leonard Cohen, and now George Michael.
What a sad year this has been for the music world and for these musicians’ fans.
