What's  so special about the Cure ?
Well to begin with the amazing songs and Lyrics and Musicianship of the current band
They are playing at such an amazing level
The Front man Robert Smith is iconic
As  is the bass player Simon Gallup
They also have virtuoso guitarist Reeves Gabrels as well as brilliant drummer Jason  cooper keyboards by Roger O' Donnell
And the very popular  Perry Bamonte reecently returned
Their Shows in the past have been legendary lasting in excess of three hours
Although on this current tour are averaging 2hours 30 minutes
And what is special apart from all this that they make the fan  identify  with something in them I know a lot of friends who have at times been isolated Cure fans and are not understood by people in general why they would want to go and see them more than once and travel to different countries
The reason for this is not only are the band special but so are the fans
And they love meeting like minded people over the last 32 years since I done my first international trip to see the  in Belgium
I have met lots and lots of very friendly people from all over the world that are part of my cure family
After the 2016 tour and the three nights at Wembley areana there were about 2-300 people going back to pub socialising and singing and we were high on seeing the cure
My cousin whom I sent a video said he had never heard of fans of bands doing this
I said well they are not cure fans it's who we are
This year I turned 60 no big party for me my treat to my self is seeing the CURE as much as I can
Although sometimes life can make me feel confused there's one thing  I'm Not Mixed up about
Is no matter how many Times I get to see the Cure
It really is Never enough


It's so hard to describe why the cure are so special to me.
Whenever I listen to their music I feel like I'm in another world.
Everything about their music is perfect, you can feel their emotions, their thoughts, it makes you feel closer to them and feel a kind of connection.
I feel understood and less alone.
There's a song that captures every way i might feel.
They don't play FOR you but WITH you.
There are so many things I can say about them, but i think that their music speaks for itself.


Several things make The Cure special. First you have to name the music. Not many artists have a light-hearted and dark side that comes through in equal measure. Then there is the atmosphere at the concerts, which can be described as family. And then there's the fact that, from a financial point of view, The Cure don't need to record new albums or go on tour. I think Robert sees the big picture. That also makes him special. Last but not least, all current and former members of The Cure have remained human, with their strengths and weaknesses. So they're not 'taken off', which many people can identify with. All of this seen over the course of decades makes The Cure truly exceptional artists.
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)

I thought you were going to announce the finalists at 22:00?


The contest closed 20:00 CET and results were going to be published by 22:00 CET but I had time to do it sooner. Apologies if this was not clear. However It's exactly 22:00 and likes are unchanged - 6 votes each so first post still makes it to the final.You cannot view this attachment.
