Essential Albums of the 80's: Culture Club's "Colour by Numbers"
Culture Club was one of the most iconic new wave bands of the 80’s. Led by androgynous lead singer Boy George, the group spent a good portion of the decade at the top of the charts. After finding successes with such songs as “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me” and “Time”, off of their 1982 debut album, “Kissing to Be Clever”, the band really made waves with their sophomore effort, 1983’s “Colour by Numbers.”
Producing such memorable 80’s hits as “Church of the Poison Mind” and Karma Chameleon,” “Colour by Numbers” was an international success and earned a spot as one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s “100 Best Albums of the 80’s.” The album is full of great tunes that’ll still get people up and moving.
