It's one of the most enduring ballads of all time, but prepare to hear George Michael's 'Careless Whisper' as you've never heard it before ...
Someone has isolated the legendary singer's vocals on the song - and it is four minutes of pure power.
With the iconic saxophone and other instruments stripped away, the song is carried purely by the natural magic of his voice.
'Careless Whisper' was Michael's first solo single, but he actually co-wrote it with his former Wham! bandmate Andrew Ridgeley.
The single was released in August 1984, and unsurprisingly it reached number one in the UK and stayed there for three weeks.
It also topped the charts in 25 other countries and was later named Billboard's number-one song of 1985.
