You know how Robert once said that he likes The Figurehead better than Lovecats, though the latter has a better melody? Well I don't   :D
   
Btw listened to Screw now: not half bad, a fun little bass-driven number. It has a hint of the "deliberately ugly" aesthetic he explored on parts of The Top, and it just comes together nicely. Certainly better than (what to me is) lazy, unfocused, atmospheric rubbish like Push.

...which reminds me to note that 'disliking a song' from The Cure doesn't mean, at
least from my point of view, 'uninteresting in general'. It's important to keep this apart. ;)

There's more than one way to dislike a song, that's for sure!

Most of their stuff between 1979 and 1989 is interesting in one way or another, whether a particular track works for me as a piece of music or not. Recordings by great artists in their pomp tend to be fascinating even if not every single cut is a masterpiece (e.g. Disintegration's title track). AND I tend to discover new songs I've never noticed are good, the latest being Happy The Man (wow!) and Screw (not bad).

Nor can I think of many songs from that period I find grating or annoying or in bad taste etc.

I'd say that from 1990 onward it's a different paradigm, and leave it at that.

The Cure is my fav band of all time. I recently made a list of my fav 300 songs ever and The Cure is on it 19 times, more than any other.

That being said, I can't pretend to love all of their songs. Some of them even grate on my nerves quite hard.

List of Cure songs I dislike the most (not including 'Curiosity', demos, Cult Hero, etc). I have a hard time listening to these ones:

TIB/BDC:
Subway Song, Foxy Lady, Meathook, So What, World War, Do The Hansa

17S:
Secrets, In Your House, Three

Faith/Charlotte:
The Funeral Party, Descent, Splintered In Her Head

Pornography:
Pornography, Lament (Flexipop)

JW:
(none)

Faith:
Dressing Up

THOTD:
(none)

KMKMKM:
Icing Sugar

Disintegration:
(none)

MU:
Primary (Red Mix)

Wish:
(none)

WMS:
Gone

BF:
(none)

S/T:
Never

413D:
Scream
The way she pulls me in sucks my breath away

The 13th, Mint Car, Lullaby... etc.

so... all songs from Greatest Hits (except A Forest 'n' Lovesong) are worst ones, I guess.


Song I can't believe other fans dislike:

Homesick!

"Coming Up" (bonus track on some of the "Bloodflowers" versions) is one I never really warmed to.
but memory's not life... and it's not love.

Screw

Ok it is a few months later since I have stated that I dislike 'In between days' but I have come to like it now and every time I hear it I think about this comment that I once wrote here not liking this song..
So I am taking it back. I like 'In between days'!

Some time ago I have read an analysis of 'Let's go to bed' on this site and I am listening to this song in a different way since then..and it now is growing on me too.

No changes yet as far as 'Screw' is concerned though.
