The Gossip - Careless Whisper

"Shoulda known better than to cheat a friend"

If you haven’t heard about it yet, the UK’s Radio One is celebrating forty years on the air in a really cool way: by releasing a cd where current artists cover 40 hits from the past, one from each year of the channel’s existence. The quality of these covers varies, of course, but some are really great. One of my early standouts is the Gossip’s cover of Wham’s Careless Whisper. I’ve never been the biggest fan of the Gossip (other than the singles), even though they’re from the town that I was born in. But, I’m a sucker for covers of well known songs that play around with the originals to an extent that completely changes them. On this track, the band speeds up the original and gives it their trademark soulful punk sound. It could easily be a radio hit for these guys despite being a part of the Radio One project.
