Title: The Cure Song Election - The Cure
Post by: Whiskers on August 18, 2011, 20:05:12
The election for Bloodflowers is over, and now we move on to The Cure!

Again, the rules:
1. Always vote for the song you like the least.
2. After 1 day (more than 24 hours), the song that got the most votes has to go and will be dismissed.
3. Then vote for a song of the updated list you like the least.
4. This will go on until there is only one song left, and that would be the most popular song of The Cure.
5. In case of a changed vote only edit your original vote post for that particular round do not post a new post saying "I change my vote to so and so" - that makes it really difficult to count rounds.

6. In case of a tie, there will be one more day to vote for the songs with equal votes only. The song that gets most voted during that day will win.


These are the songs on The Cure:

1.) Lost
2.) Labyrinth
3.) Before Three
4.) Truth, Goodness And Beauty
5.) The End Of The World
6.) Anniversary
7.) Us Or Them
8.) alt.end
9.) (I Don't Know What's Going) On...
10.) Taking Off
11.) Never
12.) The Promise
13.) Going Nowhere

My first vote goes to "Us Or Them"

The top three of Bloodflowers (http://curefans.com/albums-and-songs/the-cure-song-election-bloodflowers/msg74037/#msg74037):
1.) Bloodflowers
2.) The Last Day Of Summer
3.) Out Of This World

"(I Don't Know What's Going) On" doesn't know what's going on as it takes the 11th place slot.

These are the remaining songs on The Cure:

"Lost"
"Labyrinth"
"Before Three"
"The End Of The World"
"Anniversary"
"alt.end"
"Taking Off"
"Never"
"The Promise"

My (unpopular) vote goes to "Going Nowhere"

"alt.end" doesn't want to take the 10th place slot... too bad.

"Lost"
"Labyrinth"
"Before Three"
"The End Of The World"
"Anniversary"
"Taking Off"
"Never"
"The Promise"
"Going Nowhere"

My vote remains the same. Weird that two of the three still-played songs from the album got booted off so quickly...

Since it is tied between "The End Of The World" and "Never," people have the next 24 hours to vote only for either of those two songs. My vote goes to "Never."

At the beginning I didn't like this album so much, but lately I have appreciate it much more. Honestly I prefer this one to 4:13 Dream. ;)
Title: Re: The Cure Song Election - The Cure
Post by: dsanchez on August 29, 2011, 12:51:16
Both albums are probably the ones I like the less from The Cure. However, I would prefer "4:13 Dream" mainly because "Underneath The Stars" and "Hungry Ghost".
Title: Re: The Cure Song Election - The Cure
Post by: TheyCallMeP on August 30, 2011, 07:22:10
Even though I like 4:13 more, this album isn't without its good songs. Before Three is maybe favorite song off of the self-titled album. I guess I should probably vote.. my vote goes to Never

"Never" will never be the most popular song on The Cure.

These are the remaining songs on The Cure:

"Lost"

"The Promise" is still waiting in 3rd place.

These are the remaining songs on The Cure:

"Labyrinth"
"Anniversary"

My vote is for "Labyrinth."

As I do with other elections, now is the part where I ask what everyone's opinion is on The Cure? I know that some people like to compare this to 4:13 Dream, but I find this one to be a more overall satisfying album; the only song on it that I genuinely dislike is "Us Or Them," and I think it was a great follow-up to Bloodflowers. It's definitely their most aggressive album, and I love it for that. Also, it's the last album to feature (what I think was) their best line-up, so...

I think a lot of the songs in this album are  kind of "selfdestructive", I love it because of that. I really like to listen to it when I'm feeling really bad. I agree with Whiskers, is "a great follow-up to Bloodflowers".

Nothing is strange about "Labyrinth" taking the 2nd place slot, making "Anniversary" the most popular song on The Cure!

12.) Us Or Them
11.) (I Don't Know What's Going) On...
10.) alt.end
9.) Never
8.) The End Of The World
7.) Taking Off
6.) Going Nowhere
5.) Before Three
4.) Lost
3.) The Promise
2.) Labyrinth
1.) Anniversary

Up next... 4:13 Dream!
