    But I'm not saying that they don't get any love :)

    The fact that Greatest Hits is the album with most listeners shows that no album gets as much love as they should

    It's always unfair to rank songs, especially from a band like the Cure. But yeah, it's interesting looking at these little lists :)

    Nice lists! The same deep water as you, Cold and Untitled are definitely among the best.

    Yeah because a generic "Best band ever!! ♥" comment is much better than people actually talking about the music and showing love for specific songs, right? The Top 3 is a pleasant change in discussion.
