The Cure

OMG no Cure thread?

The Cure is a ROCK band from England. Ive been a fan since im was like 12. Every album has a diferent a refreshing sound. Robert Smith's vocals and lyrics have influenced tons. Porl Thompson's guitar riffs are juts delightful, Boris William's ( now Jason Cooper) drums were very simple yet technical. Simon's bass lines just brings the music together. If you've never heard of The Cure i'd recommend you to try them, try songs like : Just Like Heaven, A Forest, Lovesong. They've been around for some time now (lets say 1979) They have 12 studio albums and 34 singles. The Cure is sometimes classified as goth (wich is wrong) they may dress goth but their music isnt (except for Pornography).

Well lets talk about The Cure.

Who else is a big fan?

i really like the lovecats, close to me and boys don't cry. i have their standing on the beach cassette. side a is very nice and catchy. the b sides are kinda horrible, true cure fans might appreciate it though.

I have their Greatest Hits and I just bought Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me recently. Pretty good music, for the most part.

Yeah the Cure are pretty much the best.



Close to Me is easily one of the greatest songs of all time.

Yes. A lot of b-sides are better than the a side, halo is the b side from friday and halo is a much better song.

Mixed Cure playlists are great!!! Fantastic pop songs like Boys Don't Cry, In Between Days, Letter to Elise etc mixed in with their more adventurous and artistic material like Lullaby, Love Song and A Forest.

Can often turn out better than the albums (but thats somewhat a given).

Yeah, great, great band.

^Nope. Like when you take your favourites off of each and make a playlist, and stick it on a CD/Tape/mp3 player/whatever.

Because The Cure covered many different styles, those sort of playlists are always great.

Technically there more of an Alternative/Goth/Pop/Rock band

I have Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me and Greatest Hits atm but my friend has a lot more.

There roots however are in more Goth-y stuff.

Im with Abe, I can tolerate listening to a mix cd but very rarely reach out to put a full album on.

They're good but overrated IMO. I only have Boys Don't Cry and Pornography though.
