BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982
I am going to see Culture Club live tonight at The Joint located at the Hard Rock Hotel/Casino here in Tulsa. It’s the original band line up with Boy George, Jon Moss, Michael Craig and Roy Hay. Their current tour has been getting great reviews so I am excited to see them live for the first time.
“Mystery Boy” was a single only released in Japan in 1982. The mix on this single, and the Japanese album “Kissing To Be Clever” is an alternate version than what appeared in the US and UK where the song was a b-side. This alternate mix includes a piano break which was removed from the US and UK releases. The song was also used in a Japanese TV ad for Suntori brand whiskey with “Hot Whiskey” lyrics.
