According to Wikipedia Karma Chameleon is defined as, and I quote
“KARMA CHAMELEION is a classic hit song by British New Wave band Culture Club, featured on the group’s 1983 album Colour by Numbers. The single spent three weeks at #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in early 1984, becoming the group’s biggest hit and only US #1 among their many Top 10 hits. “Karma Chameleon” was also a huge global hit, hitting #1 in sixteen countries worldwide, and the Top 10 in several more.

In the group’s home country of the United Kingdom, it became the second Culture Club single to reach the top of the UK Singles Chart (after “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me“), where it stayed for six weeks in September and October 1983, and became the UK’s biggest-selling single of the year 1983. Worldwide, “Karma Chameleon” went on to sell over 5 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling singles of all time. It is widely regarded as Culture Club’s signature song.
In an interview, Culture Club frontman Boy George explained: “The song is about the terrible fear of alienation that people have, the fear of standing up for one thing. It’s about trying to suck up to everybody. Basically, if you aren’t true, if you don’t act like you feel, then you get Karma-justice, that’s nature’s way of paying you back.”
It inadvertently always reminds me of Boy George.
