I decided to listen The Top, The Head On The Door and Kiss Me Kiss me Kiss me. Did all the two first albums in the last day of 2014 but finished the last one already in 2015. The first song I listened this year was "Icing Sugar". I didn't listen to this for quite a while so it was very interesting to re-discover it :smth020

Well done, and the song fitted my mood.
Can't you see I try? Swimming the same deep water as you is hard...


Lets my memory be perverted to the uses    
Of lying and oppression.    
My lovers and their children must not be dispossessed of me;
I would be the untarnished possession forever
Of those for whom I lived.
(Spoon River Anthology, E.L.M.)

So I was watchin 120 Minutes today (only music vids now but still from 12-2 am once a week on Monday n I always always stay up for it) n they play a lot of great bands (Siouxsie and the Banshees, Radiohead, Morrissey, New Order, Depeche Mode, Beck Hansen, Faith No More, R.E.M., The Cure, n so many more bands). So it was the last few minutes, n Friday I'm In Love came on. I actually started cryin n singin tbh. It was 1:50 or so am, n my first Cure song of the new year. My first song this year was actually Blue Monday by New Order!!

"Pictures Of You" from 'Play Out', the best live ever version of this song IMO:

Au lieu de chercher Dieu dans les œuvres, nous
nous cherchons nous-mêmes. Notre paresse est
telle que nous préférons de basses impressions
aisées, qui nous diminuent, aux grandioses qui
exigent de l'effort.
