Boy George thinks he sounds like he has ''a peg on his nose'' on 'Karma Chameleon' and his voice is too ''nasal'' on the recording.
Boy George thinks he sounds like he has ''a peg on his nose'' on 'Karma Chameleon'.
The former Culture Club singer isn't a fan of the studio recording of his band's 1983 hit because of the way his voice sounds, and he now sings it much lower.
He said: ''That record is very happy isn't it. Now, when I perform it, it's a bit lower and more guttural, [the recording is] very polite and nasal, I sort of sound like I've got a peg on my nose. When I listen to old things I always think I sound a bit nasal.''
George - real name George O'Dowd - also told how he's a fan of finding different versions of the track online and seeing the ways people interpret his most famous song.
He added: ''We've done many different versions - heavy metal, reggae. And recently I was looking online to see if there are any different versions and there's a Pete Doherty Babyshambles version, choirs, Mexican versions, schools, a few foreign ones, a mad Japanese one.''
Despite the song being a huge hit, George maintains the words don't have any great meaning to them.
He added to Radio 2: ''It's not realty about anything in particular, it's a metaphor, karma being action. Its' kind of a metaphor of being true to yourself.''
