Book: Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides
Song: Karma Chamelon - Culture Club
Why: Middlesex is about a man who is telling the story of his Greek family and his experience being an intersex individual. Karma Chameleon came to mind instantly when I thought of what song I wanted to use for Soundtrack Saturday. It might be more for the androgynous looks of Boy George who, let's face it, has some awesome 80s makeup. I don't know if the song really fits the main character, Calliope/Cal, but for some reason I just felt the song fit! I hope the choice doesn't offend anyone. Look for my review of the book in a few days. I just finished it tonight!
I can't embed the video this week, but it is available on You Tube. Click here to watch the video.
