My music collection is an assortment of love songs, sad songs, pop songs, dance hits, remixes and so on; you name it, you have it here in my jukebox. Among the many sad songs that I have in my favorites, Carefree whispers by WHAM! is the most touching number of all.
This song is one of the biggest hits of the 80s and remains the most loved song by music lovers around the world. The composition of the song is dominated by a fascinating saxophone tune combined with subtle drum beats. Careless Whispers as the title suggests refers to words spoken but not kept by a friend or lover; these are their promises of sincerity and truthfulness. Every time I play this song, I can’t help but listen to it over and over again. Music simply immerses me in deep emotions and passions. The video for the song starring George Michael shows his passionate romantic relationship and then how he cheated on her, which made him quit. The song is then sung in the awareness and the guilt of having lost the trust of a friend or a lover in them. It is a time when the lover or friend is gone and the singer has pain and regret in their voice, yearning for their lost love.
As a child, the music in this song always captivated me and as I grew up understanding the lyrics of the songs, I was able to relate it to emotions. I always wondered what the carefree whispers in the song really meant, but I guess time and age teach us everything. So I learned that too. It is indeed a song that darkens and brings a feeling of loneliness and longing to the heart; a certain nostalgia. This song reminds you of all those heart fractures you’ve ever had, all the times you’ve been lied to or cheated on by friends or loved ones. Careless Whispers is ranked as the most popular romantic and sad songs on the hit lists and you can find the ratings online as well.
This song by WHAM! was one of their biggest hits ever produced by the group although the video for the song only features George Michael. Careless Whispers has also been popular as one of the most listened to instrumental songs and that too for all the right reasons. The music gives a certain relaxation and touches the strings of the heart which associate with pain, pain, love and similar emotions. The more you listen to music, the more aware you are of your feelings and it works best when you are in a depressed mood or feeling depressed. The song really works like therapy so enjoy!
