Since we’re talking Boy George today, I thought I’d put up my personal favorite, Mistake Number Three, from 1984’s Waking Up With The House On Fire. Rumor at the time was that “mistake number three” was the girl that Jon Moss was then pursuing. Mistakes one and two were the two times that Moss and George had been boyfriends. So the folklore went, in 1984 at least. This track really showcases the Boy’s gorgeous Smokey Robinson-like sound. Hey, remember beautiful, elaborate, memorable music videos?
Mistake Number Three reached #33 on the Billboard singles chart.
