為什麼"無憂無慮的私語"是由喬治·邁克爾(George Michael)所發行的單曲,儘管兩者都是由"錘子"撰寫的!成員?

在1984年Wham上發行了" Careless Whisper"!專輯" Make It Big",與其他大多數Wham不同!當時的歌曲也由喬治·邁克爾(George Michael)和安德魯·里奇利(Andrew Ridgeley)共同創作。那麼為什麼單曲發行會吹噓它是喬治·邁克爾的獨奏唱片,或者甚至是陌生的《以喬治·邁克爾為特色的錘子》?

這背後的原因是什麼?這是要推動最終的個人事業嗎?

The song was written before Wham even had a name, way back in '81. George took over the writing by the time the band were recording, so everything after that tends to only have his name attached to it.

The one thing you have to bear in mind above all else is that George's ego was the biggest thing in Wham. Bigger than Andrew, bigger than the name, bigger than their earlier, 'cheaper' hits.

By 84/85 George was almost embarrassed by the earlier material. He thought he was better than that & deserved better recognition. Meeting him in person, you'd think he owned any theatre he was playing at.

I had the misfortune to meet him once at the Lyceum in London, right as this record was being plugged, before it was a hit. He took the stage alone, dissociating himself from the earlier Wham incarnation. [The video had intercuts of another recording from there, idk whether that was recorded before or after this event.] George, even at the time, treated anyone else even performing the same stage as inferior. He was constantly surrounded by bodyguards [totally for show, as we were all in a secure, non-public area], & wouldn't speak to anyone. I spent the day instead with most of Culture Club & other lesser-known acts on that day. We all ignored George's ego & antics.
I did have the pleasure of working on another project with the guitarist & sax player from Careless Whisper, Robert Ahwai & Steve Gregory. Lovely chaps, great players.

George wanted adoration above all else.

That's why it's listed as being George Michael… ego.

See Wikipedia Careless Whisper for something closer to the 'official' story.
