Today marks the 35th Anniversary of George Michael’s classic hit Careless Whisper.
The music is memorable, especially the saxophone in both versions. When you hear that sound, you know immediately it’s Careless Whisper. The slow beat suits the mood of the song, which is regret about a man cheating on his partner. George Michael voice is the music at times. That’s impressive! The beat increases right before he says: “Tonight the music seems so loud…”
George Michael’s voice was incredible and full of emotion. He knew how to makes sympathize with him or feel empathy for him, despite his mistake.
The lyrics are well-written. There’s magnificent poetry to Careless Whisper. The words of this song are structured and full of emotion.
