BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986
“Boys Don’t Cry” was the second single to be released by the Cure, released in June 1979. It was released in the UK as a stand-alone single, and was included as the title track on Boys Don’t Cry, the American equivalent to Three Imaginary Boys.
In April 1986 it was re-released under the title “New Voice · New Mix”, in which the original track was remixed and the vocals re-recorded. The new version has not appeared on any subsequent release by the Cure, but can be heard in the music video for “Boys Don’t Cry”. It was released to promote Standing on a Beach; however, the original version of the song appears on the album.
