“I Wanna Be A Cowboy” is a 1985 single by British duo Boys Don’t Cry. A novelty song with deadpan humour and kitschy references, the song has been described as the perfect musical realization of a spaghetti western movie. It hit #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #13 on the Hot Dance Music/Maxi Singles Sales chart in 1986-1987, and was R&R #8. “I Wanna Be A Cowboy” was also a top 10 hit in Australia and South Africa. The video featured a cameo appearance by Lemmy Kilmister of Motörhead.

Boys Don’t Cry – Cities On Fire (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 12th January 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

Boys Don’t Cry are a British new wave band known for the hit single “I Wanna Be a Cowboy” released in 1986.

The follow-up single to “I Wanna Be a Cowboy” was (necessarily perhaps) a complete departure; “Cities On Fire”, an energetic rush of synth-rock which was released in 7″ and 12″ remix form, received early attention from MTV but failed to connect with fans of the novelty hit and didn’t receive enough airplay to create a new fanbase.

Cities On Fire (US Mix) 6:00

SIDE B:
Cities On Fire (Instrumental) 5:26
