Careless whisper - George Michael

Unlike all the singles by Wham!, 'Careless whisper' was written by George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley together. They didn't record it as a Wham! song however, considering it too out of synch with their other work.

The song was finally recorded as a solo single by George Michael, although he was still a member of Wham! at the time. It was recorded twice, once with legendary producer Jerry Wexler. George Michael wasn't happy with this version, so he re-recorded it with himself producing. The original version did appear on the UK 12" single of 'Careless whisper', but alas, this is the European version which only contains the extended and instrumental version of the song.

My collection: 12" single no. 506
Found: Songs for sale, Rotterdam, July 31, 2009
