Burning The Ground: DjPaulT's 80's and 90's Remixes

80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

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.
