Boys don't cry, but I did until I adopted my "two good songs per album" rule

Over twenty years ago, I decided to adopt a rule that I would never buy an album unless I liked at least two songs on the album. (Note that I adopted this rule before iTunes, or even Personics, allowed you to purchase individual songs.)

The sole reason that I adopted this rule was because of an album from the band Boys Don't Cry. I bought it on the strength of the song "I Wanna Be a Cowboy" - then discovered that I hated the rest of the album.

But oh, was that a good song.

im not sure but i think it was Adam Ant.
