Culture Club - Colour by Numbers (1983) Part
After a brief break, Brian and Sarah are back and ready to finish their discussion of "Colour By Numbers." The first two episodes were rather lengthy, so the challenge they face is whether they can discuss the entire second side of the album in a respectable amount of time, especially given the fact that there are three more singles and videos to talk about!
Part 3: Track by Track, Continued
Side Two of "Colour By Numbers" starts off with the first single released for the album, and a video Brian reveals-- much to Sarah's surprise-- he had never seen before, until doing research for the podcast. Two other videos are discussed during this episode, one which our hosts deem excellent, and one which they both agree is of more questionable quality, much to Brian's dismay and discomfort. Sarah announces she has many examples of misheard lyrics to share, and in one instance, Brian says he misheard the same wrong word. Sarah corrupts Brian (so he claims) by telling him the meaning of a phrase in one of the songs, and Brian attempts to be cool by using new slang terms like "totes adorbs" and "cray cray." It's up to the listeners to decide whether he pulls it off. Sarah, however, remains stuck in the past with her repeated use of the word "dude." And will these two ever agree on which members of the Barron family directed the Culture Club videos?

Part 4: Final Review and Rating
Finally, after literally hours of discussion, the time comes for Brian and Sarah to give their reviews and record adapter ratings of this classic album. Sarah asks to go first and gives a somewhat lengthy, but thoughtful review and rating. Brian is up next and explains that because he has such a deep personal history with this album, he decides to rate it twice-- first from the perspective of knowing and loving the album for almost 35 years, and then from the perspective of someone just discovering the album today. How do those three ratings compare? Listen to find out!
