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

The victims we know so well
They shine in your eyes
When they kiss and tell
Strange places we never see
But you're always there
Like a ghost in my dream
And I keep on telling you
Please don't do the things you do
When you do those things
Pull my puppet strings
I have the strangest void for you

We love and we never tell
What places our hearts in the wishing well
Love leads us into the stream
And it's sink or swim
Like it's always been
And I keep on loving you
It's the only thing to do
When the angel sings
There are greater things
Can I give them all to you

Pull the strings of emotion
Take a ride into unknown pleasure
Feel like a child
On a dark night
Wishing there was some kind of heaven
I could be warm with you smiling
Hold out your hand for a while
The victims
We know them so well
So well

The victims we know so well
They shine in your eyes
When they kiss and tell
Strange places we never see
But you're always there
Like a ghost in my dream
And I keep on telling you
Please don't do the things you do
When you do those things
Pull my puppet strings
I have the strangest void for you

Show my heart some devotion
Push aside those that whisper never
Feel like a child
On a dark night
Wishing we could spend it together
I could be warm with you smiling
Hold out your hand for a while
The victims
We know the so well
