Tags: boy george, Culture Club, she was never he
I've always been a fan of Boy George. Mind you, I kinda missed the Culture Club boat by a few years, but looking back I do like his music quite a bit.

Gosh, that brought tears to my eyes.
I have to admit that was a great song. I was never a big Culture Club fan when they were around. I was still deep in the closet and into punk when they were popular. Besides, the radio played "Karma Chameleon" ad nauseum for so long when it was popular that I eventually learned to hate them just because I was sick of that song.
This was the first thing I'd ever heard from Boy George as a solo artist and it was great. Completely unlike what I expected. I think perhaps some research is in order here.
Jerame is a huge fan of Culture Club. Me? Not so much.
When I got my Commodore 64, one of it's features was that it could play Karma Chameleon in some software or another. I always remember that song because of the tinny computer version it would play.
I didn't know about this song by the Boy until you posted this video. I did a search on the song and it's from a 2002 album I knew nothing about until now.
Here's some information from wikipedia:
I hope George has better days in the near future and that he'll return to music and performance.
PS: I like his solo stuff better than CC.
Wow, I have heard the song before but didn't listen to the text. Thanks for the reminder--
