Shuffle Song Of The Day (10/22/22): “Lovesong” By The Cure

“Lovesong” is a song by the British rock band The Cure, and it was 1 of 4 singles from their 8th studio album, Disintegration, which was released in 1989

Despite not being a dad going through his midlife crisis or a goth teenager from 1985, I fucking love The Cure. They emerged in the post-punk era, but eventually changed their sound and image in the early 80s, which is where they really exploded. The Cure found the perfect way to balance punk/gothic rock with great synthesizer work usually reserved for new-wave/pop projects. This lead to a diverse fanbase and international fame and success, and also to them becoming one of the stand out British bands of that time period (And that its really saying something)

This song in particular perfectly exemplifies some of the stand out qualities about The Cure that I mentioned above. Lyrically, it’s a “love song”, yet it has this dark tone to it that only The Cure could pull off, leading me to believe it’s more of an end of relationship situation and a lost love song. The lyrics, the synth, the music video: Just all fucking perfect

Before I go, lets talk about Robert Smith for a second 644870cf127c52ceec3bf455a63a0093.jpg
He looks like absolute shit these days. Seriously, is that Robert Smith, or the crazy neighborhood cat lady that calls the cops when she catches kids in her yard? I honestly can’t tell. Jesus Christ man, I know the makeup was cool back in the 80’s, but you might wanna cut back on it seeing as you’re 63 now. He kinda looks like a dead woman who just got her makeup done at the funeral home, but then resurrected to go complain about expired coupons at the local supermarket. Better yet, the guy kinda looks like the creepy veil lady from the Insidious movies

I can laugh at his appearance all I want, but at the end of the day, he’s rich and famous as fuck and I’m not. If the opportunity came along for me to dress like a dead drag queen for millions of dollars, I’d be putting on makeup and a bikini faster than you can say “gross”. If you say that you wouldn’t, you’re the weirdo, not me

LYRICS

“Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you

(Fly me to the moon)

Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I’m alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you”
