    That "Friday I'm In Love isn't that good" speech is getting old. Just saying

    "Friday I'm in Love" isn't even one of their best pop styled songs. I would much rather listen to "The Walk" or even "Let's Go to Bed" before that. Overall, "The Figurehead" and "Charlotte Sometimes" are the best Cure songs IMO.

    Everybody is so goth... And i just got into the cure but my sister LOVES them but i didn't want to like them because she liked them and so i just made fun of them a lot but mostly Simon Gallup but the only two albums i will listen to is Three imaginary boys and The top because Simon is not in them. i'm really mean

    Fascination Street is amazing, guys, kudos for representing the classics. Friday I'm in Love is alright for what it is but yeah, it's honestly one of the very worst good Cure songs
