    History[edit]

    "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me" was the third single released in Europe by Culture Club and their debut release in the United States and Canada. The song was picked up by BBC Radio 2 and became a UK No. 1 single for three weeks in October 1982. It entered the American Pop chart the week ending 4 December 1982, hit No. 1 in magazine, and held at No. 2 for three weeks on the Hot 100 chart in March and April 1983 (kept from the No. 1 spot by the massive success of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean"). The single hit No. 1 in Canada.[1] It was also number one in Australia.

    This was Culture Club's first major success, after their first two releases, "White Boy" and "I'm Afraid of Me", charted lower in the UK at No. 114 and No. 100 respectively. According to Boy George, it was their last chance to get an album deal.

    The song rose rapidly in the UK charts after the group's first appearance on , which resulted in George's androgynous style of dress and sexual ambiguity making newspaper headlines. The group were only asked to appear on the night before the show, after Shakin' Stevens pulled out.[2]

    In a retrospective review, Allmusic journalist Jose F. Promis described "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me" as "a simple masterpiece, resonating with an ache that harked back to the classic torch songs of yesteryear."[3]

    In 2007, Boy George said that the song was "not just about Culture Club's drummer Jon Moss, my boyfriend at the time. It was about all the guys I dated at that time in my life."[2]

    The B-side was a dub version featuring Pappa Weasel in many countries and "You Know I'm Not Crazy" on the US release. On the 12" version of the record, the track "Love Is Cold (You Were Never No Good)" was also included.

    Remixes[edit]

    The song was remixed by DJs Quivver and Kinky Roland in 1998 for a Culture Club compilation called and the single "I Just Wanna Be Loved". It was also remixed and presented on Culture Club's 2002 box set along with the original demo version.

    Re-released as a reggaeton remix in France, it was again a top 20 hit in the summer of 2005.

    Music video[edit]

    The video for the song, directed by Julien Temple, featured lead singer Boy George on trial in a courtroom (filmed in Islington Town Hall Council Chamber), with flashbacks to the Gargoyle Club, Soho in 1936 and the Dolphin Square Health Club, Pimlico in 1957 (actually filmed at the now disused Hornsey Road swimming baths in Islington). The jury was in blackface making jazz hands gestures. One band member, Mikey Craig, was not in the video, and was replaced by his brother Greg.[]

    Boy George wears a shirt with the Hebrew writing "Tarbut Agudda" (תַּרְבּוּת אֲגֻדָּה), a literal translation of the individual words "culture" and "association" in a grammatically incorrect order.

    Do You Really Want to Hurt Me Lyrics

    [Verse 1]

    Give me time to realise my crime

    Let me love and steal

    I have danced inside your eyes

    How can I be real? [Chorus]

    Do you really want to hurt me?

    Do you really want to make me cry?

    Precious kisses, words that burn me

    Lovers never ask you why

    [Verse 2]

    In my heart the fire's burning

    Choose my colour, find a star

    Precious people always tell me

    That's a step, a step too far

    mynameisntjmack 'TUCKER' (Live Performance) | Open Mic

    [Chorus]

    Do you really want to hurt me?

    Do you really want to make me cry?

    Do you really want to hurt me?

    Do you really want to make me cry?

    [Verse 3]

    Words are few I have spoken

    I could waste a thousand years

    Wrapped in sorrow, words are token

    Come inside and catch my tears

    You've been talking but believe me

    If it's true you do not know

    This boy loves without a reason

    I'm prepared to let you go

    [Bridge]

    If it's love you want from me

    Then take it away

    Everything's not what you see

    It's over again [Chorus]

    Do you really want to hurt me?

    Do you really want to make me cry?

    Do you really want to hurt me?

    Do you really want to make me cry?

    Do you really want to hurt me?

    Do you really want to make me cry?

    Do you really want to hurt me?

    Do you really want to make me cry?

    Do you really want to hurt me?

    Do you really want to make me cry?

    About

    Genius Annotation

    “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me” was the third single from Culture Club’s debut album. Like most songs on it, “Hurt” was written by Boy George primarily about his relationship with drummer Jon Moss. The band had come up with the melody during some spare time while recording for The Peter Powell show on BBC Radio One.

    After the band’s previous two singles made little impact, their label wanted to release “Hurt” as the group’s last chance to find success. George did not want the record label to send it to radio as a single because not only did he feel it was too personal, but “it wasn’t club music” – threatening to leave the band if they did so. The label moved forward anyway, but things continued to look fruitless at first, with an early review in Smash Hits calling the song “weak, watered-down fourth division reggae”.

    After Shakin' Stevens canceled his appearance on the popular UK music show Top Of The Pops, Culture Club was asked to fill in. George’s controversial cross-dressing look filled the newspapers and airwaves the next day with statements like ‘Is it a boy, is it a girl?’ and ‘What is that thing?!’ The massive publicity of the performance helped launch the song up to the #1 spot in the UK for three consecutive weeks.

    “Hurt” also topped the chart in several other countries around the world, and reached #2 in several more – including the US in March 1983 where it was held from the top spot for three weeks by Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean”. Within a few months, the band were international stars.

    Its music video, showing George being not accepted in various scenarios, including a courtroom with a jury in blackface, was in heavy rotation on MTV in the US. Director Julien Temple explained it was:

    …about being gay and being victimized for your sexuality, which George was kind of emblematic of. It seemed appropriate to me that in the video he would be judged by jurors in blackface, to send up bigotry and point out the hypocrisy of the many gay judges and politicians in the UK who’d enacted anti-gay legislation.

    Soon after, their follow-up single “Time” also shot into the top 20 in several countries around the world, and the band would eventually reach the top 5 in the UK seven times before their breakup in 1986.

    George has stated that despite the outward appearance that the song was written about S&M, it was simply about emotional pain. But in an “apparently accidental allusion” to this song, while he was being tried for handcuffing a male escort and hitting him with a chain in 2009, the prosecution asked the jury, “Did he really have to hurt him?”

    Ask us a question about this song

    What have the artists said about this song?

    Genius Answer

    Boy George shared in 2008:

    Our first two singles failed. That single was our last chance. But I threatened to leave if (the label) released it. I didn’t think it was us; it wasn’t club music. It wouldn’t stand up to Spandau Ballet. But I was wrong. It was so personal in a way that our other songs weren’t. It was about Jon. All the songs were about him, but they were more ambiguous.

    In 2007, he shared:

    A lot of people thought ‘Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?’ was about S&M, but it was about Culture Club’s drummer Jon Moss, my boyfriend at the time. Well, not just Jon, it was about all the guys I dated at that time in my life. I always had these awkward relationships, which only became awkward when other people became involved. Jon was fine shagging me until his mum met me. He lived in a posh house in Hampstead and I was invited round for dinner. His mum answered the door and went ‘Oh!’. I ended up having to eat with the servants in the kitchen.
