I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend (2:16)

Cover of Ramones

From Ramones and 22 other releases

“I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend” is an endearing love song that proved to be one of the band’s most enduring compositions. The relatively tender song is seen as a nod to the Ramones’ early rock and roll influences. The studio version somewhat uncharacteristically features a glockenspiel. The song was written by drummer Tommy. According to Dee Dee Ramone’s autobiography Lobotomy, “We could have made a million dollars on it, because the Bay City Rollers wanted to do it.”

    definite Buddy Holly influence. also LCDNewOrder, if you want to here the original tweed band, listen to The Velvet Underground's self-titled album, in particular the song After Hours.

    Good stuff. Almost sounds like it could fit in with late 50s to early 60s songs.
