He’s a performer. It’s his job.

BOY GEORGE: If you told me 10 years ago, 20 years ago, that I could actually change the way I think about things, I would have laughed at you. I would of gone, “Yeah, no, I’m definitely stubborn and opinionated.” And, you know, it’s quite nice to discover you’re wrong.

Good on Boy George and collaborating with Teddy Riley on a New Jack Swing jam was bold and I applaud him for that.

He did a good stint as DJ when I was in Uni in the Toon, NE of England. Glad to see he is still doing stuff.

Because it is where BG lived for many years but now plans to live in the US.

BG was a neighbor and part of the local scene around Hampstead and Camden.

He’s had a very good career. Can’t say I was a fan but Karma Chameleon is a superb pop song.

I definitely was a fan back in the day rhythmically one of the better groups of that decade, and gave me a lot of inspiration as a musician, not just that, but fashion as well, glad that he’s still around doing music. Most definitely gave a lot to the contribution of music. Kudos.

Indeed. What ever floats your boat.

Yes, very good songs, or at least what I regard as very good songs, float my boat.

Pretty obvious I thought.

Just to expand on that for the sake of clarity, less good songs don’t tend to float my boat as much.

Cheers.

Yes, very good songs

If you say so.

I didn’t name those songs. You don’t know what the songs I posted about are.

Just off the top of my head - Suspicious Minds, Don’t be Cruel and Jailhouse Rock to name 3.

I’d say quite a few would say so. Not you?

You like Eye of the Tiger?

The Rocky thing? Not bad. A bit cheesy but I suppose it fits the film.

Yes..okay.

I have the compilation 'First 5 Years' Culture Club CD, and the songs are as good now as ever. And there's some other stuff from that period that I never want to hear ever again.

But Culture Club made some good music, much of it inspired by reggae. You can hardly go wrong with reggae.
