Inquiring minds want to know...

...a question that occurred to us when George Michael's "Careless Whisper" came on the radio:

Why, exactly, were his feet guilty?

Or do we really want to know?

It's an interesting example of a prescient song as role play, in which he's managing to channel David Mellor from eight years in the future...

A friend of mine was remarked that this was veiled reference to "toe sex" - in light of this the song takes on a somewhat odd aspect...

Apparently so!

He should have known better than to cheat a friend.

His feet are pretending to be something they aren't (i.e. the dancing-feet of a straight man). Why the rest of him isn't guilty, I don't know. I've seen the way they danced in Wham! They should be guilty from head to foot and locked up for it.

Andrew Ridgeley looks very bad for his age, if that's any consolation.

Maybe because they couldn't hide his lying eyes from a hungry heart.

It's a mis-quote. The first demo of the song was entitled Careless Vespa, and it relates to a tragic scooter accident when George's foot missed the brake pedal, causing him to accidentally crash down the steps leading into a public convenience. The rest is history.
