This post features yours truly playing the song, Careless Whisper by George Michael. This song has always been a favorite of mine. Incidentally, I had done a Careless Whisper piano cover on December 22 and posted it on YouTube. The response to this cover was very good. Little did I know that only three days after, George Michael would have died at only 53 years of age.
On Christmas night, I played piano at the hotel as usual and ended with the song, Careless Whisper. Actually, this wasn’t even supposed to be my final song. It ended being my last song because of a mix-up in the time. The band had to come on and I ended 15 minutes earlier than usual.
George Michael Careless Whisper Piano Cover – Instrumental by Mantius Cazaubon
When I arrived home that night and went on Facebook, I got the shocking news of George Michael’s death. I just found it so amazing that it was so much about George the past few days, with the YouTube video and Careless Whisper being my final song, and now he is dead. I guess there are some things we just don’t understand, but they definitely make you think.
I decided to replace the previous George Michael Careless Whisper piano cover with the one embedded here. In other words, I played the song over. I wanted to give it a fresh treatment. In the previous one, I was showing my hands only, but in this one, I show my face. I think I need to do more of these type of piano covers where I show my face so that I can connect better with my audience/viewers.
Anyway this is yours truly playing Careless Whisper by the late (sad to say) George Michael. May he rest in peace. Thank you for all the great songs including Faith, Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, Last Christmas, and of course, Careless Whisper (featured here). You made a tremendous contribution to the world and your music will live on forever.
I hope you love it. Thank you for watching/listening.
“I’m never gonna dance again
Guilty feet have got no rhythm
Though it’s easy to pretend
I know you’re not a fool
I should’ve known better than to cheat a friend
And waste a chance that I’ve been given
So I’m never gonna dance again
The way I danced with you”
