Which guy from Wham? Oh, never mind. If it was George Michael, it'd be Ramabananna. And he's dead.

I was at a wedding where the officiant(*) prompted the vows like, "Do you, ___, take ___. Again." The couple had broken up and reuinited.

(*) I don't remember if he became a priest for a day or what, but marriage and religion were not part of his regular job description.

According to Wiktionary, it's pronounced /ʃivaːn/ in English and /ˈʃʊwaːnˠ/ in Irish. Fark ate some of the phonetic symbols so click the link to see them. "ʃ" is the phonetic spelling of "sh".

Naw, it's like Devon, but stress the second syllable. Or divan with an "o" sound instead of "a".

Shəvon.

Took my mother in for a colonoscopy about 3 years ago.  Venus was on the radio and my mother (75) liked it.  "That's a nice song.  Who are they?"  I said, "they're an eighties group, Bananarama."  She made a face, "that's a strange name.  How'd they come up with that?"

Harry Wagstaff: There was a member of Wham that wasn't gay?


Years ago, I was listening to "Welcome to the Pleasure Dome" and by Irish roommate, about 15 years older than me confided:
"You know, a couple of the blokes in that band are gay!"
"*gasp* I'm so surprised - I though they all were!"
She didn't think that was funny.

I still love that album. My enjoyment of music does not depend on whether I approve of where that musician rubs their genitals - as long as it involves consenting adults.

Just last night at the bar a lady played Michael Jackson's "Beat It" on the jukebox, and the guy next to me started going on and on and on about having to listen to music made by somebody who was gay. I pointed out that Eddie Van Halen played the guitar solo on that track.

"Why did you have to ruin them [Van Halen] for me?" He looked really butt-hurt. Then he started ranting about how Judas Priest was his favorite band growing up, but he found out their lead singer is gay. "Now what am I supposed to do?"

I was about to point out that he should rethink the lyrics to "Hellbent for Leather," "You've Got Another Thing Coming," and "Throbbing ManLove in the GloryHole,"but that would just be kicking him while he was down. Then he started chatting up the ugliest lady in the bar.

Eh, I stress the first syllable in all of those. And Teflon may have an extra half-syllable, or schwa or something in there.

I'm a bit confused by this. Has Bananarama or the other guy from Wham! been relevant since the 80's?

Indeed. "S" before a slender vowel is pronounced as "Sh" and the "bh" is pronounced as a "v".
