George Michael’s ‘Careless Whisper’ voted No.1 song of all time
The late George Michael’s single ‘Careless Whisper’ has been voted the number one song of all time by Smooth Radio’s listeners.
The music legend tragically died in December last year aged 53, but his debut solo track, which was released in 1984, is still top of the charts, whilst ‘A Different Corner’ has landed in second place.
And the former Wham! band member has been praised as “one of the biggest talents” in the world, as he still continues to be “in the nation’s heart” even more now after his death.
Speaking about the musician and the nation’s favourite tunes, group executive director and director of broadcasting at Global, Richard Park, said:
“George Michael was one of the biggest talents the world has ever seen and the results of Smooth’s All Time Top 500 confirm that he remains in the nation’s heart now more than ever. Together with Smooth’s 5.4 million listeners across the UK, our countdown over the Bank Holiday weekend has been the perfect way to celebrate the life and music of this great man.”
