So, er, yeah. Which one?

My favorite is 2 Late, closely followed by The Exploding Boy.

"No-one will ever take your place...."

How this song didn't make it on to Wish when a song like Wendy Time did is a mystery for the ages.

Fear of Ghosts should have been on Disintegration in Lovesong's place (while Lovesong should have been a non-album single, maybe Lullaby should have been too), and 2 Late should have been a single.

I really like It Used To Be Me too... and A Chain of Flowers... and Scared As You... and Ocean... and Adonais... and Harold and Joe... and The Big Hand... and Fear of Ghosts... and --

God.

I would kill for a Join the Dots Tour.
Another Curefan for The Dark Christmas album.

'This Twilight Garden' narrowly edges out 'I'm Cold'.  Both are two of my favorites.

Yeah, This Twilight Garden kicks all kind of ass. And 2 Late is totally one of the great "lost" Cure singles.

And I would also be all for a Join the Dots tour - but I think they could skip Do The Hansa, New Day, Mr. Pink Eye, Stop Dead and the like...and Dredd Song. Especially Dredd Song.

Too hard to pick, but I'm on an "Exploding Boy" kick right now so that's my vote.
Big fan of "A Few Hours After This" as well.
"This Twilight Garden" is the most perfect of all the Bsides... EVER.

I'm partial to The Big Hand right now.  This should have been on Wish too but I guess Robert wasn't a big fan of it.

This is a point of you, and this is... yours. But i can't agree when you imagine a Join The Dots Tour without Mr Pink Eyes & Stop Dead.

And just a thing : Lovesong is just... a perfect love pop song.

Well, as long as they wouldn't do Dredd Song.  :-D
