Boy George practically invented the music video. Since his debut video clip with Culture Club in 1982 for “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me”, Boy George has penetrated pop music with unforgettable, controversial and iconic music videos. There are enough posts that (rightfully) sing the praises of Culture Club's best music videos, like the heart felt like being at home with the defying “Time (Clock Of The Heart)” and the beautiful “Victims” music video. However, where is the love for Boy George’s solo music videos that aren’t as well-known? These 20 videos, which span 30 years of Boy George’s career, these are just some of his little-hidden gems that deserve applause. Some are funky (“Coming Home”), some are sexy (“Don't Cry”) and some are downright bizarre (“You Are My Heroin”) Let’s feel it, feel it shall we?
# 20 Somebody to Love Me (2012)
The clip basically shows a (simulated) home video depicting Boy George back in the day and the naivety, fun and level of fame he achieved at a young age (he is played by Diane Kruger in the clip). The lyrics to the song are a contrast to that- he is singing about how lonely he is now and how he lost so much due to his fame.
# 19 Generations Of Love (1990)
The video, filmed in and around Soho’s dark porn cinemas and garish amusement arcades, depicted a clutch of post-Taboo club legends at the height of their powers, including George and fashion icon Leigh Bowery as trans hookers and dearly-departed DJ legend Tallulah as a sleazy trick.
#18 Coming Home (2013)
The latest single from Dharma Protocol feat artist Boy George 'Coming Home' - this music video was filmed on the Epping Ongar Railway.

No.7 To Be Reborn (1987)
A beautiful music video by Jean-Baptise Mondino. It opens up like a storybook telling a story about being reborn again.
