Boy George has been active in so many different types of music that it would be difficult to call any specific songs "quintessential Boy George". However, there are some songs from each era of his career which he is best known for, beginning with the most famous of all: Culture Club.
Culture Club's "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me" was a surprise when it was
released. The sound was one which was mellow, progressive, and pop all at
once. Most of all, this song stood out as the one which really introduced
Boy George to the world. No one had ever seen or heard anything quite like
this, and the sound remains unique to this day.
When Boy George started his solo career, he also began what would be one
of many changes in musical style. One of his standout solo hits was "The
Crying Game". With its poignant sound and strong and deep vocals, this
song provided a major boost to not only Boy George's then flagging career,
but also to the movie of the same title.
