カルチャークラブ ’Karma Chameleon’ (1984)

Have you ever heard of the once-popular British pop group ‘Culture Club’? The group is quite popular among Western Pop lovers in Japan in 80s.

The following song reminds me of my university days, and it is very nostalgic: Karma Chameleon’

The more detailed explanation of the above video clip is as follows:

Music video

The “Karma Chameleon” music video is set in Mississippi in 1870, according to caption. It depicts people in colourful costumes, including dancers in “red, gold and green”, waiting on a riverbank. Boy George is dressed in even more colourful and flamboyant costume and is depicted singing the title song. A pickpocket is seen wandering through the crowd. A riverboat, The Chameleon, arrives and people board. A game of cards takes place, with Boy George still singing in the background. The pickpocket is discovered cheating and is forced to walk the plank. Throughout the video, black and white people are depicted singing and dancing together. It was filmed at Despra Island in Weybridge during the summer of 1983.
