 It has to be Disintegration  :o Genius song and I love all the layers and the fact Robert speaks at the begining and a little bit through the song but you have to really turn it up to catch it! I love all that secret bits and the formation of the song....and after all these years I can't get bored of playing it! :)  :smth020
Flowers in your mouth and the same dry song
The routine from laughter land


I voted for Pictures of You but it's so bloody hard to make my mind up. Plainsong? Untitled? the title track? Lullaby?
Misjudged your limits
Pushed you too far
Took you for granted
I thought that you needed me more
'Boys Don't Cry' is my favourite Cure song but it doesn't mean I'm not a hardcore fan. Disintegration is my favourite LP! The Cure are my favourite band!


Last dance. I think it's a classy composition and is a perfect balance between pop Cure and morose Cure obviously it's more the latter than the former.

in bed amongst the stones

This was hard, but Plainsong, followed closely by Lovesong, Pictures of You, Closedown, and Last Dance.
Pushing her white face into the mirror...


The title track; unrelenting in its instrumentation and despair. My all-time favorite Cure song


01 Pictures Of You (it makes me smile and cry at the same time... just simply amazing. Show version even better)
02 Fascination Street (hard, drifting sound, and the lyrics is... trip to the wonderland).
03 Plainsong (great, monumental music, and scared and wounded lyrics... absolutely fantastic. What a great opener.)


The pinnacle album...

01 The title track (the words, the keyboard, the noise of a smashing object, a masterpiece)
02 Prayers For Rain (a good concert opener, not only for bad weather)  ;)
03 Untitled (a rare live track, shame)
Il y a, en Russie, une unité d'aspiration sans ana-
logue en Europe, cette force invincible du peuple
jeune, en croissance, qui lui assure la prochaine
hégémonie: mais le caractère russe, plus ingénu
qu'aucun autre, n'a point de défense contre les poi-
sons de la philosophie allemande. (J. Péladan)


Only 2 votes for Closedown? It's like the essence of The Cure. And the obsession with SDWAY I don't get--it's beautiful and appropriate in the context of the record, but on its own it's not an interesting or impressive song.


01 Homesick
02 Fascination Street
03 Prayers For Rain/The Same Deep Water As You
04 Lovesong/Last Dance


Fascination Street
Pictures Of You


Not sure if I ever mentioned this, but the first time I heard 'Lullaby' (didn't know it was The Cure) I thought it was some woman singing the song...
