Not really a big Cure fan, but their "radio" song 'Friday I'm In Love' (I think that's the title) is pretty good. It's a hard song to get out of my head when I hear it.

"Friday I'm in love" drives me nuts.....it's one of my least favorites....."Facsination Steet" is my favorite...I also like "Love Song".

Both off Disentagration.

Her name is Lyn Z and she is the bassist for an awesome band called Mindless Self Indulgence. She rocks and she is pretty fine too if you check some of her pics out at their site. MSI (http://www.mindlessselfindulgence.com)

Nope.
Anyway my alma-mata(Cal Poly) has a home game at the same time against Montana St(Kraig Kilbourne's alma-mata.
I am not much of fan of Robert Smith. He always looks and sounds depressed. I kind of sense also when Johnny Depp played Edward Sciorhands that he based his performance off of Robert Smith.
On a historical note I believe that the Cure was only the third act to perfom a concert in Dodger Stadium. The prior two were the Beatles(1966) and Elton John(1975). The Dodgers were having a really awful year in 1992, going 63-99 a year after winning over 90 games, and the Dodger brass wanted to make some extra revenue. So since Robert Smith expressed a preference to perform once in a area in a large venue, instead of for 5 to 7 times in a week in a smaller one(6.200 capicity Universal Amaphethatre) that most acts playing in LA did, the Dodgers agreed to let the Cure play there.

interesting facts mf52..thanks!

The Cure's music has gone through many moods...some our depressing, some of the earlier ones are rebellious, and more recent ones are half happy and half depressing....all depends on ehat you like I guess:)

Your thread is like your band, CW... keeps coming back thru it all. Funny how a band whose music often gets tagged as "depressing" can have such staying power, but I get it. The same can be said of stuff by someone quite different from Robert Smith in style: James Taylor. Maybe it has something to do with having a bland, standard-issue name.:)

My hopes for a reunion of my all time fave band, The Clash, kinda took a blow about a year ago.:(

Did you ever hear Joe Strummer and the Mezcaleros??? I loved them, their album Global a Go Go is one of the best I have ever heard. And a few months after releasing it, they where playing a concert in MExico City.... I went crazy man, I bought a ticket for me, for my girlfriend at the time, for my best friend, I was the most excited man ever... Then they canceled it, apparently not enough people bought tickets... I cried, I really honestly cried.. that bad it was for me.. I was going to see Joe Strummer (a personal hero) and then months later, he died... I was in shock, utter shock... Damn, it brings tears in my eyes just to remember that.

What a great band to have a thread about! I can't believe I just found this.

I've had Just Like Heaven as my ringtone off and on for the last 2 years. So many really great songs from Smith and gang...Close to Me; Love Song; Never Enough (which EMF soooo ripped off); High; Wrong Number; Lullaby; Pictures of You, of course.

And Homesick got me through my first year in Seattle.

That's a good one...the whole "Top" album was trippy. Got so many I like

The Lovecats
2 Late(the b-side of Lovesong)
Just Like Heaven
Charlotte Sometimes
A Night Like This, Push, Six Different Ways, pretty much the whole "Head On the Door" album.
One Hundred Years
The Exploding Boy (another b-side favorite)
A Forest
Plainsong
Closedown
Mint Car (one of the relatively newer ones...great song)
Primary

and many many more...

man, the cure is my second favorite band (after the misfits). my favorites are (in no particular order):


100 years
fascination street
jumping someone else's train
killing an arab (its about a book, dont get upset anyone)
lovesong (played this one as our wedding recessional)
play for today
seventeen seconds
three imaginary boys
from the edge of the deep green sea
close to me
just like heaven
jupiter crash
there is no if

ok, i guess thats enough from me...i would love to see them live, and the song off the crow soundtrack is burn.

Favorite album is Pornography and one of my favorite songs in "The Hanging Garden"

I've seen them live twice. Once for the Disintegration tour and recently for the Bloodflowers tour. The Bloodflowers tour was very mellow and slow, which was good since I had seen Nine Inch Nails the same week. So it was a great contrast to make it a last memory.

The Disintegration tour was simply amazing and happened during such a great time in my life. It always brings back such great memories.
