The Cure is one of my favourite bands and has been since I was around sixteen. They have a unique, alternative, ever-changing sound that can suit any mood. The band formed in 1976 in the U.K under the name Easy Cure, which was eventually changed to just The Cure. Robert Smith, the front man of the band is the only original member left today.
The Cure has had different band members over the years, but has always managed to have an amazing sound. Their songs have helped me through tough times, but have also given me happiness. Their songs range from upbeat and pop-like to slow and sullen. I believe that part of the reason The Cure has been so successful is because of this versatility. The use of instruments within their songs is inventive and the vocals are unlike anything else, and have the ability to transport you to another time and space.
The Cure has 13 studio albums, along with 37 singles and a career spanning nearly 40 years!
Honestly, I love the majority of their songs. But these are my top picks.
Boys Don’t Cry (1979)
Friday I’m in Love (1992)
Pictures of You (1990)
Charlotte Sometimes (1991)
The Figurehead (1982)
I will always love The Cure, and I highly recommend them.
Next in my music appreciation series will be The Smiths.
Until next time,
