REQUEST

“I’ll Tumble 4 Ya” was a hit single from Culture Club’s Platinum-plus debut album Kissing to Be Clever.

The 7″ single was released only in North America, peaking at #9 in both the U.S. and #5 in Canada. In Australia, it was released in September 1983 as a Double A-side single with Karma Chameleon, peaking at #1 and receiving substantial airplay. With this single, in America, Culture Club was the first band to have three Top 10 singles from a debut album since The Beatles. Much like the group’s two prior American hits, this song was aided by a hugely popular MTV music video.

    Love! Love! Love! this version. Interestingly enough I seem to be remember that the mash medley of I’ll Tumble 4 Ya and Miss Me Blind seemed to have been a bigger hit than this one back in the day. But this is one gem of a mix. Thank you Dj PaulT!
