Careless Whisper

背景

乔治·迈克尔(George Michael,1963年6月25日-2016年12月25日),1963年6月25日出生于英国伦敦北部,英国希腊裔创作歌手。

1981年,与安德鲁·维治利(Andrew Ridgeley)组成威猛乐队(WHAM!)而出道。们的首张专辑《Fantastic》一经推出,很快就在英国的排行榜上名列第一,并连续两周位居榜首。

1985年4月,威猛乐队在北京工人体育馆开唱,成为第一支到中国大陆演出的西方乐队。1986年,威猛乐队解散。此后,乔治·迈克尔于1998年公开出柜,沉醉于酒精与毒品里。

乔治·迈克尔身上具有上世纪八十年代巨星的典型特质:华丽、性感、有自毁倾向;同时能力超强,是表演者也是创作者,还担任自己的制作人与乐队首领。他不变的特长始终是他写出优美旋律的本领。

代表作如《Careless Whisper》和《Last Christmas》。乔治·迈克尔写下《Careless Whisper》时只有17岁。

1980年的一天,在英国芬契列电影院当引座员的乔治·迈克尔在乘坐公共汽车时,脑海里一直盘旋着一个旋律,回到家后,他急忙把它写了下来。歌词描述了一段迟迟不敢表白的暗恋心情。

这首代表1980年代风格的情歌,以萨克斯风作为开头,乔治·迈克尔以性感成熟的嗓音独唱全曲。歌曲写了一个男子同时爱上了三个女孩。别人在谈论这件事情,他的正式女友知道了这个秘密,结果大家心照不宣,跳最后一个舞,可是他是爱她的。他不敢说话,却在心里唱着歌,交织着悔恨、伤感和表白,但一切已是无可挽回了,沉默中感情正在趋向破裂。

歌词

I feel so unsure

As I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor

As the music dies...

Something in your eyes

Calls to mind a silver screen

And all those sad goodbyes

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 have no better than to cheat a friend

And waste the chance that I'd been given

So I'm never gonna dance again

The way I danced with you
wham2

Time can never mend

The careless whispers of a good friend

To the heart and mind

If your answer's kind

There's no comfort in the truth

Pain is all you'll find

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 have no better than to cheat a friend

And waste the chance that I'd been given

So I'm never gonna dance again

The way I danced with you

What am I without your love?

Tonight the music seems so loud

I wish that we could lose the crowd

Maybe it's better this way

We'd hurt each other with the things we want to say

We could have been so good together

We could have made this last forever

But now, who's gonna dance with me?

Please stay

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 have no better than to cheat a friend

And waste the chance that I'd been given

So I'm never gonna dance again

The way I danced with you

Now that you're gone...

Was what I did so wrong?

So wrong that you had to leave me alone?
