Curespotting

Lady Gaga liked to snort coke and listen to Never Enough.
(Thanks to everyone who sent this in)

"Just Like Heaven was in this week's episode of Warehouse 13. Very clear and about half the song." (Thanks thistle)

"I have just watched the 10th episode, season 5, of the tv show L-Word, called Lifecycle. During a scene of love between two women, they play Just Like Heaven entirely. This makes two things rare on tv! First, a song being played from beginning to end in a TV show, second, a man singing voice on L-Word." (Thanks Claudio)

A list of songs about books includes Killing An Arab. (Thanks Kate)

Is Robert Pattinson the new Robert Smith? Um, fuck no! Robert doesn't sparkle! : P (Thanks Kate)

(Thanks Jörg)

Diciembre Girls compared to The Cure. (Thanks Heron)

  3. In a Sacramento Examiner article about a local charity event, the music reviewer does not "drop the Cure reference lightly".

  18. There was me thinking that Gaga's coochie must be a little on the ugly side only to learn that in fact it's rather pretty.

    Not that there's anything wrong with ones genitalia being aesthetically unappealing.

    Mine is deformed ie EXTRA LARGE but I can live with it :-)
