      • It should be #1! If only everyone thought the same. πŸ™‚

        I will have to check out some of those Cure songs on your list that I don’t know. I just got familiar with “A Forest” b/c Bats for Lashes did a remake and it sounds great. Youtube it if you haven’t heard it. πŸ™‚

  1. Always loved ‘A Forest’, especially the ‘Live In Orange’ performance. I saw them play here in Oz back in the nineties – after Robert Smith had hypnotherapy to deal with his fear of flying. It was one of the best live shows I think I’ve seen. πŸ™‚

  2. All great choices – really, it’s tough to have a wrong answer with the cure! I’d have a tough time not including doing the unstuck, friday I’m in love, mint car, pictures of you, fascination street – but I guess my ‘top 5’ could change daily!

    • It’s funny – as much as I grew up in & love the 80s, I didn’t like The Cure until much more recently. I’d have been a total outcast for liking The Cure in my small metal-loving community in the 80s. πŸ˜‰ Some of the ones you’ve mentioned I don’t know very well.

    • Thank you! πŸ™‚ Glad to hear from a Cure fan. It’s funny about The Cure – I wasn’t a fan in my teens. It was much later in life that I finally gave The Cure a chance. Still mainly only know the singles but I love these songs like crazy. πŸ™‚

  4. Its funny that you post this because tonight my friend is playing in a Cure Tribute band. I don’t know many of their songs but. I liked that one track they did for The Crow soundtrack.

    • Oh, I almost missed this comment! It’s interesting about The Cure… Here’s my history (if you want it): πŸ˜‰ In high school I was a metalhead so I sure as shit didn’t listen to The Cure. I only got into them, hmm…. probably in my early 30s? I still need to explore the albums as I only really know the singles (I miss the days of buying actual albums & listening to them as a whole!). But GOD I love those singles. They’re possibly my most played songs on my phone & I never get sick of them. Okay – I’ve decided I really need to explore the album tracks now too! And I highly recommend you giving some of the songs a try. Start with Lullaby. And then maybe Why Can’t I Be You. And then the rest on my list! πŸ™‚
