Between The Walk and Charlotte Sometimes....(scratches head, tosses coin)The Walk, just

ExplicitMoment

Charlotte Sometimes for me, although that said, I do prefer the B-side Splintered In Her Head, it's just so much more menacing and nods at the material on Pornography. However, that just makes it a great single because the two sides are so different in style and mood, which I know is something Robert Smith likes to try and do with the singles.

Charlotte Sometimes - re-kindled on the 4Tour!

I´d say A Forest. How could You not include that single?

Charlotte Sometimes, as I have said before, is one of the top definitive Cure songs for me.

Also, I chose "Let's Go To Bed" because it's a great tune and it's B-side is a worthy companion.

i suppose just because it's included on 'seventeen seconds'. the poll name "stand alone singles" meant single releases which aren't included as standard album tracks.

I couldn't help voting for The Walk. It's a brilliant pop-piece!  :smth020 :smth023
My favorite song to dance to! (I was tempted to give my voice to Charlotte Sometimes though - it's a real masterpiece, but I know that almost everyone would vote for it, so I decided to support the outsider) =)
How time will heal, make me forget?!
YOU PROMISED ME!!!

Oh yes of course. I didn´t respond on that statement. Guess my english kinda sucks when it comes to everyday expressions.

Ok, then my vote went down the alley of "Let´s Go to Bed". Mainly, sorry to say, for the b-side.

I called you after midnight
Then run until my heart burst
I passed the howling woman
And stood outside your door


A Walk! Stunning..For me, its the best single ever..plus with some sentimental value   there for me. 8)



Yes...Only lately have I come to appreciate the genius of this song. Its crept into my Cure top 10 and I used to not like it very much. Great surreal lyrics and an amazine melody.
a smile to hide the fear away

Trust...

I choose Charlotte Sometimes, for sure!

I voted for Charlotte Sometimes. I really love listening to it, and it made me read the book (which is also really good and can see why he based a song around it)
Its Just Like a Dream...:)

Charlotte Sometimes is my choice too. In my opinion is one of the top Cure songs ever
I went away alone with nothing left but faith
