Careless Whisper and 80s Love of the Saxophone

You'll probably recognize George Michael's 1984 hit song "Careless Whisper" as soon as you hear it.

The song is unintentionally hilarious with its lyrics and signature saxophone riff.  It cracks me up every time.

Watching the 80s cheesy video only makes it better.  I didn't think "Careless Whisper" could get any funnier until I saw this prank involving the saxophone riff from the song.

The best part is the look on the guy's face in biology class.  He's trying to resist, but clearly he's seduced by the riff.

At some point in the 1980s, people decided that the saxophone was cool and sexy.

Nothing quite encapsulates this phenomenon more than Rob Lowe's ridiculous saxophone scene leading a rock band in "St. Elmo's Fire."

Coke and the saxophone must really go well together.  That's my best explanation.  But this's my favorite scene involving a saxophone.
