Originally posted May 4th, 2011

“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.
