Culture Club scoort onder leiding van de extravagante zanger Boy George in de jaren 80 grote hits. Do You Really Want To Hurt Me is in 1982 de eerste hit voor de band en bereikt de tweede plaats in de Top 40. In 1983 scoort Culture Club een nummer 1-hit met Karma Chameleon. Verder scoren ze hoog met The War Song, Church Of The Poisoned Mind en Victims. In 1986 houdt de band het voor gezien en kampt de zanger met een drugsverslaving. Hij kickt af en scoort in 1987 een top 3-hit met de single Everything I Own. In 1999 komt de band weer bij elkaar. Hits worden er niet gescoord maar de fans worden op hun wenken bediend.

Songtekst

Dessert loving in your eyes all the way.
If I listen to your lies,
Would you say I'm a man without conviction,
I'm a man who doesn't know
How to sell a contradiction?
You come and go, you come and go.

Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma, chameleon,
You come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colours were like my dreams:
Red, gold, and green, red, gold, and green.

Didn't you hear your wicked words ever'y day.
And you used to be so sweet.
I heard you say that my love was an addiction.
When we cling, our love is strong.
When you go, you're gone forever.
You string along, you string along.

Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma, chameleon,
You come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colours were like my dreams:
Red, gold, and green, red, gold, and green.

Ev'ry day is like survival.
You're my lover, not my rival.

Ev'ry day is like survival.
You're my lover, not my rival.

I'm a man without conviction
I'm a man who doesn't know
How to sale a contradiction?
You come and go, you come and go.

Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma, chameleon,
You come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colours were like my dreams:
Red, gold, and green, red, gold, and green.

Karma, karma, karma, karma, karma, chameleon,
You come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colours were like my dreams:
Red, gold, and green, red, gold, and green.
