Kissing to Be Clever

Kissing to Be Clever is the breakthrough album by New Wave band Culture Club, released in 1982 (see 1982 in music). Anchored by the international hit "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?", with its sunny reggae tones and neo-torch song[?] vocals, remains one of Culture Club's signature songs.

Since the demise of Epic Records[?], Kissing to Be Clever has been available only without the song "Time" and with the black-and-white photo pictured here, instead of the original color photo.
