Katrina Halili’s “Careless Whisper” in song (yes it’s a song, not a dance!) – why she should have listened to the lyrics too, not just dance to it

oh come on, don’t tell me you do not now associate “careless whisper” with katrina halili’s quintessential dance?!!  

by now, i do not think there is a pinoy who associates careless whisper as a song, to all of us it is now a dance.

we do not hear music and lyrics, we see katrina in this sexy dance. we hear the way she sways, the slow motion  hip movements and the those long, deep bends! yeah that is what careless whisper is to us now.

to many young people, they did not even know the song was originally from the 80’s hit group WHAM!, the most infamous member of it being george michael.

so for your information and aditional knowledge, we were putting here the original video of the song with george michael performing in it. it is obviously an 80’s video with the storyline, the hair (oh my goodness, the hair!), the cinematography and yes, the dance moves! no, not at all like katrina’s.

the other thing you will notice here, that is if you can remove katrina from your mind just for a few seconds, is this – damn, george michael is so GAY! hahaha. well, at that time we did not know that yet. he outed himself after WHAM! but look at his moves and poses and he was gay then as he is now.

oh, for your information, careless whisper actually has lyrics to it, it’s not just music and katrina’s ohhhhhh dance moves.

we are posting here the complete lyris and highlithing what we think katrina should have paid attention to.

there are many parts of the lyrics which we think is quite ironic as the words do apply to katrina’s life and troubles now. the lyrics by themselves are actually very well written, very poetic.

it is ironic that those same poetic lyrics may exact some perverted (pun intended) poetic justice on katrina’s life. had she listened to those lyrics carefully, she would have not told herself now that “Should’ve known better”. after this whole episode in the life of katrina, will she say to the careless whisper song :” so I’m never gonna dance again the way I danced with you”.

postscript: in all seriousness, i think katrina should do a dance video of the song. a DVD and it will be a hit! i for one will buy a dozen of it if she does one. i like to have a copy at hand everywhere i go!

CARELESS WHISPER

Time can never mend the careless whispers of a good friend
To the heart and mind, ignorance is kind
there’s no comfort in the truth
pain is all you’ll find

Should’ve known better

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 the silver screen
and all its sad good-byes

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

Should’ve known better than to cheat a friend
and waste the chance that I’ve been given
so I’m never gonna dance again
the way I danced with you

Time can never mend
the careless whispers of a good friend
to the heart and mind
ignorance is 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

Should’ve known better than to cheat a friend
and waste this chance that I’ve been given
so I’m never gonna dance again
the way I danced with you

Never without your love

Tonight the music seems so loud
I wish that we could lose this crowd
Maybe it’s better this way
We’d hurt each other with the things we’d want to say

We could have been so good together
We could have lived this dance forever
But noone’s gonna dance with me

Please stay

And 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

Should’ve known better than to cheat a friend
and waste the chance that I’ve been given
so I’m never gonna dance again
the way I danced with you

(Now that you’re gone) Now that you’re gone
(Now that you’re gone) What I did’s so wrong
that you had to leave me alone
