K is for Karma Chameleon

It is time for the cheesy portion of A-Z Blog Challenge because I couldn't come up with anything else for K. I got this song stuck in my mind and the only way to get it out is to blog about it and pass it along.

In the 80's (yes some of us will admit to living them) I was quite the fan of bad music. It was exciting to have moved past the 8track and onto cassette tapes. Yes there was good music (anyone saying that Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson were bad should be shot) but there were quite a few clunkers that were possible. Which leads me to Culture Club and Karma Chameleon.

For some reason I liked them. I have no idea why. I look back at that and go blech and can't even stand to listen to any of their songs when they come on the radio for 80's weekend. But this one has a story. You see when Dan and I got married in 1988 he went through my cassettes and said he couldn't marry me if I still owned Culture Club. It was just that bad. Of course he said it jokingly (he would have still married me). So before we got married, I threw it out. Yup, I caved into the pressure of marriage and got rid of that tape. And I've never regretted it. :)

So thanks Dan for helping me rid myself of junk. Now just step back from the ABC.


  1. I loved them, too. It was all just part of the times.

  2. LOL OMG I now have that song in my head!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Oh my gosh now that song is going around in my head. I love Culture Club. Perfect K post.

  4. I like Karma Chameleon. I can't say that I know any other songs by Culture Club though.

    Have fun with a-z. :)
