I’ve been reminiscing about the fabulous 80s — and this song keeps popping into mind (amongst others) that seems to take me back to my childhood.

(Culture Club) – Karma Chameleon

“Desert loving in your eyes all the way

If I listen to your lies would you say

I’m a man without conviction

I’m a man who doesn’t know

How to sell a contradiction

You come and go (2X)

Karma Karma Karma Karma Karma Chameleon

You come and go (2X)

Loving would be easy

If your colours were like my dream

Red, gold and green (2X)

Didn’t hear your wicked words every day

And you used to be so sweet I heard you say

That my love was an addiction

When we cling our love is strong

When you go you’re gone forever

You string along (2X)

Karma Karma Karma Karma Karma Chameleon

You come and go (2X)

Loving would be easy

If your colours were like my dream

Red, gold and green (2X)

Every day is like survival

You’re my lover not my rival

Every day is like survival

You’re my lover not my rival

I’m a man with conviction

I’m a man who doesn’t know

How to sell a contradiction

You come and go (2X)

Karma Karma Karma Karma Karma Chameleon

You come and go (2X)

Loving would be easy

If your colours were like my dream

Red, gold and green (2X)”

According to Lyrics.com, “Karma Chameleon topped the UK Charts for six weeks, and sold more than 1.3 million copies there. It was their first (and only) US chart topper.”

Ack! Now they have a 90s website — can you believe it? I’m getting old *sigh*.
