438 Crying Boys

Boys don’t cry. 


Maybe they should. 

I dunno, but I do know that Boys Don’t Cry (PVC, 1980), along with several other early singles put The Cure in the post-punk and new wave movements that were emerging in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s.  Wiki says that it was an “alternate version of the band’s 1979 debut album, Three Imaginary Boys, with a slightly different track list.” I was a little bummed to not be able to find the entire album on iTunes. I had to youTube it. “Boys Don’t Cry” was the only song on this particular album I was familiar with. I think at the time it was released, my parents were still in control of the radio. Despite my parents best efforts, I strayed from their musical tastes and I enjoy The Cure.
