"It's a Miracle" is the fifth and final single from new wave band Culture Club's 1983 Colour by Numbers album. The song became the group's sixth top-five hit on the UK Singles Chart, peaking at number four. It reached number thirteen on the Billboard Hot 100. and hit the top five in Canada. It was the band's first US release to miss the Top 10; however, the song still received considerable airplay there during the summer of 1984. Also, the song reached number eight on the U.S. Adult Contemporary chart and number two on the Canadian Adult Contemporary chart.
The B-side of the 7-inch single is a live rendition of "Love Twist", a track from their first album. It was recorded in December 1983. An additional live track, "Melting Pot" (a cover of the song by the group Blue Mink), from the same show was available on the 12-inch single.
The original song was known as "It's America".
The music video features the band playing around on a circular board with various Monopoly spaces placed around the edges. Interspersed with these are clips from previous Culture Club music videos.
