Songfacts®:

  • "Let Somebody Love You" is the lead single from Life, Culture Club's first album of new material in 19 years. The brassy, reggae-infused jam finds Boy George choosing to ignore the possible consequences and let love feed the hunger in his heart.

    "You always seem to be attracted to people who are trouble, you know, 'You are fire, I am water' but ultimately you've got to take the risk," he told Sara Cox on BBC Radio 2. "It's always a risk you're going to get your heart broken."
