After fitful reunions over the decades, Boy George and the original lineup of Culture Club got back together and started touring again a few years ago. And while the group are largely focused on reviving such ’80s hits as “Karma Chameleon” and “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me,” they’re about to release a comeback album, Life, with a title song in which the ever-mellifluous Boy George puts on his best soulful croon. The B-52s also would appear to be a largely nostalgic band, but their 2008 album, Funplex, was an underrated collection of memorable songs like “Juliet of the Spirits,” “Love in the Year 3000” and the sarcastic and zippy title track. The Athens, Georgia, group’s triumvirate of singers are as charismatic as ever, with Fred Schneider barking out lyrical non sequiturs against the dreamy, otherworldly harmonies of Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson.
