"When Boy George was the flavor du jour in the U.K. fronting Culture Club in the early 1980s, he was more of a curiosity in the U.S. than anything else His music career as a solo artist never got off the ground and then one day he was brought in to sing a version of the 1960's song "The Crying Game" in a production by the Pet Shop Boys. The track ended up being the title song for the movie that was the big hush-hush word of mouth hit of the winters of 1992-93 and Boy George's first hit in the U.S. as a solo artist. This CD-Single is not the traditional sort, in that you do not get the "hit" version of the single, but rather a pair of mixes (Digifunky String Mix and Digifunky Diva Dub). There are a pair of mixes for "Let the Music Play" as well, but the last track, "Live For Today" is the best of the bunch. Boy George released a few more solo albums, which were much more personal efforts than his previous ones and avoided doing the sort of covers that were so successful here, along with an autobiography entitled "Take It Like a Man." However, today his singing career has taken a back seat to putting out albums of underground artists heard in clubs. No one can accuse Boy George of not being faithful to his roots."
Don't want no more.

"This is a CD single of Boy George's title song from The Crying Game. Great song, but the two remixes here lose some of the charm of the song. There are remixes of two other songs from The Crying Game Soundtrack (produced by the Pet Shop Boys), "Let the Music Play" by Carroll Thompson and "Live For Today" by Cicero with Sylvia Mason-James. These remixes aren't that great."
