Ok, since there seems to be a best Of/ worst of frenzy around here, here it goes:


THREE IMAGINARY BOYS
best: 10:15 Saturday Night
worst: Foxy Lady

SEVENTEEN SECONDS
best: A Forest
worst: not applicable (really, "The Final Sound" is great for what it is, just a mood intro, not a real song)

FAITH
best: Faith
worst: not applicable ("Doubt" and "The Funeral Party" are just too good to be labelled "worst" of anything)

PORNOGRAPHY
best: 100 Years
worst: not applicable ("A Short Term Effect" - same argument as above...)

THE TOP
best: The Top
worst: not applicable (yet again!)

THE HEAD ON THE DOOR
best: Close to Me
worst: Screw

KISS ME KISS ME KISS ME
best: The Kiss
worst: Hot Hot Hot! (but it's still fun...)

DISINTEGRATION
best: The Same Deep Water as You
worst: Lullaby (mainly because it sounds somewhat out of place in the album... its still a good song, though)

WISH
best: End
worst: Cut (an awful interpretation of what could have been a massive song)

WILD MOOD SWINGS
best: Want
worst: difficult choice, here  :-D Too many to mention, but maybe "Mint car"

BLOODFLOWERS
best: The Last Day of Summer
worst: Maybe Someday

THE CURE
best: Lost
worst: Never


COMPILATIONS AND LIVE ALBUMS

JAPANESE WHISPERS
best: Lament
worst: it´s all good, really! Ok, maybe "Speak my language" is a little less focused

CONCERT
best: This is a difficult one... maybe " A Forest"
worst: There´s nothing less than good here... maybe "The Walk"

MIXED UP
I don' think I know it all...But I remember "Close to Me" being really well done, whereas "Pictures of You" sounded pointless

ENTREAT
best: Homesick
worst: I can't remember anything here that would deserve to be called "the worst"

SHOW / PARIS
I refuse to vote... Should have never been released this way.

GALORE
No one really needs it, except completists.

GREATEST HITS
I am a serious Cure fan, dammit!

JOIN THE DOTS
best: could be "10:15"... or "Splintered in her head"... or "Lament"... or a few others
worst: mixes/remixes aside, it could be "Stop Dead"... "Do the Hansa" is horrible, but is also to be taken as a joke, so I dont count it

i like your answer - although i do like 'harold and joe'...

FAITH
worst: All Cats Are Grey (great lyrics, but boring)

true!

WISH
worst: I'm not going to pick Wendy Time because I like that song.

i have to agree again - it's simply not a bad song, song-writing wise.
(poor wendy, it's became just a habit to slag it off, one of the things that every cure fan repeats twenty times every morning they wake up: "wendy time sucks, wendy time..." :-D)


BLOODFLOWERS
worst: Maybe Someday (only because whenever I sing it I always seem to get a lyric wrong... haha. It's confusing, but a good song nonetheless!

:smth017 :lol:

i guess i should hate 'open' for the same reason: i seem to be totally unable to get the lyrics right, even after all these years... (but my excuse is that i mostly listen to live versions and so i can blame it on robert who always sings them more or less totally wrong live!)

I was wondering : What is the WORST song from an album ? Does it mean that you rather skip it than listen to it???  :roll:

Not necessarily. I never skip A Short-Term Effect, for instance, but Kiss Me ends with Shiver and Shake as far as I'm concerned. It's all in relation to the other songs on the album.
