Weirdest song

Which one is The Cure's weirdest song and why? Please justify your choice :)
Strangers passing in the street, by chance two separate glances meet and I am you and what I see is me...

Forever is one of them. Many different versions and many different lyrics. Besides, it's the only title that features twice on Deluxes so far: Faith and The Top.

Pirate Ships on the deluxe Disintegration album. I love it, but its an anomaly.
All this frustration
I can’t meet all my desires
Strange conversation
Self-control has just expired
All an illusion
Only in my head you don’t exist

Just Say Yes, Foxy Lady (Cover), Lullaby. 
Let's play Twister, let's play Risk (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
See you heaven if you make the list (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Tough question! The Cure have so many "weird" songs, starting with "Meathook" and not ending with "Stop Dead"...  :roll:

At the moment I'd choose "Like Cockatoos". What does it mean? And what's the weird sound at the beginning and at the end? Cockatoos?

She walked out of her house
And looked around
At all the gardens that looked
Back at her house
but memory's not life... and it's not love.

To me it's Gone!, there are so many weird things about this song, not to mention the music video  :roll:
...I think you come from another world...

For me it's New Day. I remember that I played that song very often and loud (as a teenager)
and my parents didn't complain a single time, surprisingly. This song is so scary...but musically
perfect.  :smth023

A mall inside my mouth. The lyricss are hilarious and that weird sound pretending like nausea or vomiting is great :)

Also bananafishbones is great, it looks like a mess of a song, almost impossible to find a tune and rythm, without sense, but it is almost a perfect imperfection
