Your #1 is my least favourite song from 25
, but it's still decent, even if it's not quite the sound that Adele excels with.
I checked out your #2, and it was pleasant enough. I'll definitely have to give it a second spin. The only other song I know from Culture Club is "Karma Chameleon"; this one is quite different.
Great to see "Hello" (among the Top 5 songs for me from last year), as well as "Total Eclipse of the Heart", which is just one of the best power ballads of all-time.
