Culture Club's, "Victims"
Misheard Lyrics:
When you do those things for my puppet strings
And the stranger's void for you

When you do those things, pull my puppet strings
I have the strangest void for you
The song is about Boy George's then publicly unknown relationship with drummer Jon Moss. Perhaps Boy George is gay?
