There was a radio station in town that my mom (and, by extension, my brothers and I) listened to that played a bunch of '80s music at eight every night. For the most I didn't like the songs they played, but when I finally switched radio stations five or six years ago, some songs still got airplay on the new station. I realised that they were only playing the ones that I liked and later discovered that most of them were by The Cure.

The old station played mostly KM - Wish songs (with an emphasis on Lovesong and Friday I'm in Love).

The radio station I listen to now played a number of Cure songs frequently (Boys Don't Cry, Just Like Heaven, Friday I'm in Love, 10.15 Saturday Night, Let's Go To Bed, Close To Me, Lovesong) and, when I finally had some money of my own, I went out and bought Staring at the Sea and Galore.

Things faded for awhile then, about six or eight months ago, I bought Wish and I was back. I've got all of the released Cure albums (no Blue Sunshine though...) and a slew of rarities.

So that's my story.
Another Curefan for The Dark Christmas album.

I was 13
and I saw the name a lot in magazines and stuff, but it was always linked to 'goth', but in that periode I was really into the goth thing. I didn't really listened to it up until a dutch comedi show made a parodi of them with the a forest song, I was quite struck by the song, it was just the normal a forest version luckally, so I decided to listen to them and I started with greatest hits caus I thought that would give a good impression of them after all those years, and of course I was impressed (and luckally forgot about the goth thing too, as I thought it wasn't goth AT ALL).

When I was 12 my neighbor showed me Standing on the Beach and I loved the song Killing an Arab and Boys Don’t Cry… before long I could not stop listening to both side A and the rarities on Side B. I’m now 31 and I’m posting in a Cure forum… it’s been a long love affair.  :rocker

I discovered The Cure very late, just two years ago. A friend of mine, Marian, is a huge fan of The Cure, she has been showing it to me since march of 2004 but I started listening to it at the end of that year(september/october). Now I have everything they have done! it took me a lot to find all the things and I have spent all my money on them, here in Argentina everything costs three times more...I wish I was born before so that I could know them from their begining jaja   :-D

Well, when I first heard The Cure it was in 1988, when I was 11 (I probably had heard some of their songs before then, but this is the earliest that I can clearly remember). The song was Just Like Heaven. A year or so later, I heard Lovesong and Fascination Street on the radio...by the time I started buying albums (around 1992-93, with lunch money) I had been sucked into the whole Seattle thing, and it wasn't until the summer of 1995, that I truly discovered The Cure. It started off when I borrowed the Concert album from a friend of mine, which led to me buying Wish, Seventeen Seconds, Faith, Pornography, Standing On A Beach and Disintegration - all in ONE DAY. And what a glorious day it was! Everything I had been listening to up to that point suddenly felt insignificant. Within two weeks after that, I had the entire Cure back catalogue up to Wish. I was 18. I spent the next year or so learning how to play all of their songs on guitar and bass, and not listening to much else (Radiohead's The Bends was the only other album I would listen to).

So, I suppose I grew up with The Cure...they had always been there, waiting for me to give them the great big hug they deserved.

1989 - east berlin: rias 2 broadcasted lovesong which i loved instantly. same period that i discovered lullaby. wall came down, i moved to west berlin and my schoolmate rebecca ( best friend ever since then) owned 17 seconds, faith, kiss me, head on the door, the top as lp on tape. i recorded them as well on two 90 minutes casette-tapes and listened to them night and day. thats how it started ...
