Having a Good Time (22/10/1982)

Culture Club es una banda británica de new romantic/pop muy popular en los años ochenta, liderada por Boy George (vocalista), quien se destacaba por su estética glam y sexualmente ambigua; Roy Hay (guitarra), Mike Craig (bajo) y Jon Moss (batería). El sonido de la banda se caracteriza por combinar new wave y soul, con otros estilos como el reggae, calypso, salsa o country.

El grupo triunfó en los años ochenta con temas al mismo tiempo sensuales, alegres y creativos, siendo considerados un fenómeno de la música pop. En sus inicios, Boy George creó revuelo en sus apariciones por televisión, por sus maquillajes coloridos, ropa femenina y trenzas con las que se presentaba, mostrando un aspecto inequívocamente travestido. La banda destacó junto a otros grupos de new romantic como Duran Duran o Spandau Ballet.

Culture Club are an English band that were formed in 1981. The band comprised Boy George (lead vocals), Roy Hay (guitar and keyboards), Mikey Craig (bass guitar) and Jon Moss (drums and percussion). Their second album, Colour by Numbers, sold more than 10 million copies worldwide, and the band sold more than 150 million records overall. It has been certified triple platinum in the UK and quadruple platinum in the US. It appeared on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 100 Best Albums of the 1980s and is also included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.

The band had several international hits with songs such as “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me”, “Time (Clock of the Heart)”, “Church of the Poison Mind”, “Karma Chameleon”, “Victims”, “It’s a Miracle”, “The War Song”, “Move Away”, and “I Just Wanna Be Loved”. Boy George’s androgynous style of dressing caught the attention of the public and the media. The group, supporters of the synth pop genre, made numerous forays into reggae and showed a strong propensity for the subgenre of ballads. They are considered one of the most representative and influential groups of the 1980s.

Ten of their singles reached the US Top 40, where they are associated with the Second British Invasion of British new wave groups that became popular in the US due to the cable music channel MTV. Culture Club’s music combines British new wave and American soul with Jamaican reggae and also other styles such as calypso, salsa or country.[1][2]

In 1984, Culture Club won Brit Awards for Best British Group, Best British Single (“Karma Chameleon”), and the Grammy Award for Best New Artist.[3] They were nominated the same year for the Grammy Award for Pop Vocal by Group or Duo but the English rock band The Police won the award. The band were also nominated for a Canadian Juno Award for International Album of the Year. In January 1985, Culture Club were nominated for an American Music Award for Favorite Pop/Rock Band/Duo/Group Video Artist, and in September 1985, they were nominated for two MTV Video Music Awards for Best Special Effects and Best Art Direction for their video “It’s a Miracle”.

In 1987, they received another nomination for an American Music Award for Favorite Pop/Rock Band/Duo/Group Video Artist[4] In the UK they amassed twelve Top 40 hit singles between 1982–1999, including the number ones “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me” and “Karma Chameleon”, the latter being the biggest selling single of 1983, and topped the US Billboard Hot 100 in 1984. “Time (Clock of the Heart)” is included on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s list of 500 songs that shaped rock and roll.
