BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987
“Keep Me In Mind” was the second single released from the 1987 album Sold recorded by Boy George. Radio 1 did not support this single nor did America. This single reached the UK Top 30 at No.29 also scored No.3 in Italy and No.55 in Germany and No.21 in Ireland.
George claims this song as his “most American sounding” and geared it for an American audience with its glamour video and all. Ironically, Virgin America refused to release it in the US, due to its poor chart performance overseas as well as the lack of success with “Everything I Own” in the US charts.
The b-side contains two non album tracks produced by Roy Hay. “I Pray” was originally released on the Culture Club album From Luxury To Heartache but has been remixed for this single.
