The movie that gave new meaning to the line "I know all there is to know about the crying game" has a soundtrack that features both Dave Berry's 1964 U.K. hit version of the title track and Boy George's remake, which was a U.S. hit. That track, and a few others, were produced by those gender-benders Pet Shop Boys, while Lyle Lovett sings his version of Tammy Wynette's "Stand By Your Man" and there is some orchestral scoring by Anne Dudley. As a souvenir of the movie, the soundtrack is a success, but otherwise it's miscellaneous.
