I Wanna Cry

in Stray Cats-o-pedia

Written by Lee Rocker and Slim Jim Phantom

“I Wanna Cry” appeared Rock Therapy. Lee sings lead on this composition co-written with Slim Jim. It’s very far from the rockabilly style the band created and sounds as it may been intended to be include on a Phantom, Rocker and Slick album. Actually it is unclear if the guitar part is played by Brian Setzer or not as it really sounds like Earl Slick (who gets a “thank you” in the credits). As the Stray Cats didn’t tour to support the album, it was never played live.
