Looking into the free Careless Whisper piano sheets, we see that the instruments included in the song are mainly saxophone riff, backing vocals, bass, drums, keyboards, and electric guitar.
It is important to mention that the song is very well known for the saxophone riff that is exceptional, very important for Michael at that time.
The saxophonist played the part perfectly, but Michael wasn’t pleased with the performance and kept explaining until they got it right.

The song is also about the couple dancing together, mainly because George and one of his girlfriends at that time used to dance very well together.
This is where the lyrics come from, especially
I will never dance again
The way I danced with you
