LSS, Wikipedia and the Careless Whisper Scandal

LSS, Wikipedia and the Careless Whisper Scandal

Category: Entertainment


.....

I have been hit by LSS! I dont know why but I always find myself silently singing “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…” Even if I’m typing this now, I’m humming its tune, waaaaahhh!

After watching that Hayden Kho and Katrina Halili’s dance rehearsal, I can’t shake the song “Careless Whisper” off me. It seems to have taken control of me. Help, I’m suffering from Last Song Syndrome! It’s even worse than AH1N1 (swine flu), huhuhu…

The song is an original by George Michael. It’s a song of a man who was sorry of his infidelity and trying to win back his lover. Hmmm… Ironic ba na ito pa ang background music ng dalawa? Because of its famous sensual saxophone riff, it is often played at night clubs with dancers (with or without clothes) gyrating to it.

Before, I just disregard the song since my musical preference is really alternative rock. But after I’ve seen that dirty dancing by Hayden Kho and Katrina Halili, I now find it catchy and cool. Especially since I discovered that Incubus and Seether have done cover versions of it. You might want to listen to them below.

Seether’s version

Incubus’ version

Seether’s rendition is better than the George Michael original. But then again, maybe it’s because I’m an alternative rock guy.

Do you also know that the Careless Whisper Scandal from Hayden Kho’s vault has already been immortalized at Wikipedia? Someone has added this entry for the article Careless Whisper.

In the Philippines, this song gained notoriety after a home-made video, showing celebrities Dr. Hayden Kho and Katrina Halili singing this song and dancing scantily clad, was uploaded to YouTube.

Not really the kind you want your children to read in an encyclopedia eh?
