Happy 25th Birthday Kissing To Be Clever.

Since the demise of the Epic Records edition, Culture Club's debut album Kissing to Be Clever has been available without Waist High favorite "Time (Clock of the Heart)," and with a black-and-white photo instead of the original colour photo.

The original release of Kissing to be Clever in October of 1982 was anchored by "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?," which went to #1 in the UK.

In 1996 Kissing to be Clever was reissued by Disky Communications, this time returning the colour photo, but still missing "Time (Clock of the Heart)." The remastered 2003 CD version contains additional tracks (including "Time") plus the restoration of the original colour cover.

"Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?" reached #2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in March 1983, and went to #1 in Australia and in more than twenty countries worldwide. "Time (Clock of the Heart)" went to #3 in the UK and #2 in the US.

Kissing to be Clever "will take you back to the early 1980s when British artists were making some of the best music ever invented."
