Careless Whisper == Downton Abbey

January 16, 2013



I heard “Careless Whisper” by George Michael / Wham! on Rewind 100.3 today, and for some reason it seemed to perfectly sum up the Mary & Matthew love story from Downton Abbey… I mean, come on, read these lyrics and tell me it’s not a slam dunk?!?!

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 want to say

We could have been so good together
We could have lived this dance forever
But now, who’s gonna dance with me?
Please stay

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

I should have known better than to cheat a friend
And waste a chance that I’d been given
So I’m never gonna dance again
The way I danced with you

What an awesome show.
