Great British Band: The Cure

The Cure, Boys Don’t Cry

The Cure looked like a gang of Edward Scissorhands impersonators making records, and that’s just one of the reasons that we think they’re great. Above is their most popular song, which is also a bit of a fib. Some boys cry all the damn time.

One Response to Great British Band: The Cure

    The look of the character Edward Scissorhands was based on The Cure’s singer Robert Smith. The movie came 10 years later.

    I think that Lovesong is their most popular single (most copies sold / highest chart position), but I’m far less certain about that. It seems that in recent concerts Boys Don’t Cry is less popular, I suspect the irony about displaying emotion, and the straightforward way of mentioning stereotypical male discomfort with being dumped, is lost on at least few people… and Lovesong is a conventional song written to his wife for their wedding. Again, grain of salt, etc., I’ve only seen them in a handful of U.S. venues in one geographic area.
