The Cure - Boys Don´t Cry (New Voice-New Mix) b/w Pill Box Tales (1986) - single

"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.
Written by Michael Dempsey, Robert Smith, and Lol Tolhurst, the lyrics tells the story of a man who has given up trying to regain the love that he has lost, and tries to disguise his true emotional state by "laughing, hiding the tears in [his] eyes, 'cause boys don't cry".
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 the album “Standing On A Beach”; however, the original version of the song appears on the album.
The B-side "Pillbox Tales” was previously unreleased and original recorded february 1979 and remixed in februari 1986.
