On this day in music history: February 16, 1985 - “Careless Whisper” by Wham! Featuring George Michael hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 3 weeks, topping the Adult Contemporary chart for 5 weeks on February 9, 1985, and peaking at #8 on the R&B singles chart on March 16, 1985. Written by George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley, it is the second consecutive US chart topper for the British pop music duo from Bushey, Hertsfordshire, UK. The initial idea for the song comes to George Michael while riding the bus to his job as a movie theater usher, with the signature saxophone riff coming to him first. Michael shows his friend Andrew Ridgeley what he has come up with, and together write the main chord progression. Michael finishes up the song by writing the lyrics, about a man feeling guilty about an affair he’s having with another woman. The duo rent a four track Tascam Portastudio, and is one of the first demos that they record. Of all of the songs on their original demo tape, “Careless Whisper” is instrumental in Wham! being signed to CBS UK label Innervision Records in 1982. Two versions of the song are recorded, the first with veteran R&B producer Jerry Wexler, with George traveling to Muscle Shoals, AL to record it. When he is not satisfied with the results, he re-records it after returning to the UK. The second version of “Whisper” is recorded in Studio Two at Sarm West Studios in Notting Hill, North London. The track features members of the duo’s band including Deon Estus (bass), Hugh Burns (guitars), Chris Parren (keyboards), Trevor Morrell (drums), Danny Cummings (percussion), and Steve Gregory (saxophone). Initially released as a solo single by George Michael in the UK (and other territories) on July 24, 1984, “Careless Whisper” reaches number one there on August 18, 1984 spending three weeks at the top. It tops the chart in twenty five countries, selling over six million copies worldwide, and becomes the first million selling single for the UK division of Epic Records. Also included on Wham’s second album “Make It Big”, “Whisper” is released in the US in late November 1984, right on the heels of their first chart topper “Wake Me Up Before You Go Go”, becoming an immediate smash. Entering the Hot 100 at #37 on December 22, 1984, it climbs to the top of the chart eight weeks later. The single also becomes a major airplay favorite on R&B radio stations in the US, establishing a fan base with that audience that is instrumental in the major R&B crossover success George Michael has with “Faith” in 1987. “Careless Whisper” is certified Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

@racefortheironthrone was discussing the Reyne-Tarbeck Rebellion earlier today, and the discussion touched on who might have supported the Reynes. RFTIT’s asker was specifically discussing support from other regions of Westeros, but the ask reminded me about my thoughts on House Parren. 

(I honestly can’t remember if I’ve talked about this before, or if one of my friends around here has already talked about this, but I can’t find it on @asoiafuniversity or my personal blog, I cant find it on Butterfly’s blog, I can’t find SLAL talking about it, I can’t find it on google, etc, so idk where this idea came from, I don’t even know if this idea is original to me or if I got it from someone else, but ANYWAYS)

House Parren was a noble house from the Westerlands which participated in the Ashford Tourney in 209, but which went extinct sometime before 298. Their arms are divided into four, with two black lions on a golden field, and red and white stripes. 

The Reynes were First Men who originally spoke the Old Tongue, and I don’t know how the Old Tongue works precisely, but if the evolution of Parren was something like (”Per Reyne” –> “per”=“by means of” –> “per”≈”par” –> “parreyne” –> “parren”) you could easily get Parren derived from Reyne, the way Karstark has its roots in Stark. 

If the first Parren was a second son or (legitimized?) bastard of House Reyne that founded the House centuries or millennia ago, it would make a lot of sense to me if House Parren was sworn to House Reyne. 

(The black lion on the Parren arms might represent an origin story surrounding a long-ago black sheep of House Reyne, the way Brynden Tully is the black sheep of House Tully.) 

The Westerlands rough draft says: “Lord Reyne had sent forth ravens to his own friends, allies, and vassals, but few had turned up”.

So A FEW Reyne vassals turned up. Not many, but some. If Parren answered the call, Tywin must have exterminated them along with House Reyne. So that’s how I think House Parren went extinct.
