The war song - Culture Club

Culture Club released their third album 'Waking up with the house on fire' in 1984. In an attempt to profit from their fame, the record company pushed them to come up with new material as soon as their world tour had ended. The band was a bit tired, and it can be heard in the songs on the album.

The lead single 'The war song' was not very inspired, but ended up being the one hit single from the album. It reached number 2 in the UK singles chart and number 5 in the Dutch Top 40. Subsequent singles were far less successful.

My collection: 7" single no. 2962
Found: February 9, 1998
Cost: 2,5 guilders
