16 years of News, rumors, minutiae about The Cure
Wow, a pretty eclectic list! Nice to see some love for Harold and Joe, but...I didn't see Burn anywhere? The list is a lie!
I didn't see anything from the last two albums. So no Underneath the Stars? Fuck this list.
Songs from the last two albums in Cure's Top 50? Are you kidding? The Cure have so much beautiful songs, but they are definitely not on the last two albums! UTS is good, but not Top 50. I like the list.
I'm not kidding. Yes, The Cure have many beautiful songs, and I believe several of those can be found in their last two albums.
My list: 01. Underneath the stars 02. Watching me fall 03. From the edge of the deep green sea 04. The Same Deep Water As You 05. Want 06. Pictures Of You 07. The Kiss 08. Bloodflowers 09. Disintegration 10. Plainsong 11. Burn 12. A Forest 13. The Figurehead 14. A Strange Day 15. End 16. Your God Is Fear17. The Hungry Ghost 18. Fascination Street 19. The Snakepit 20. A Chain of Flowers 21. It Used To Be Me 22. The Last Day Of Summer 23. The Hanging Garden 24. A Letter To Elise 25. The Big Hand 26. Primary 27. If only tonight we could sleep 28. Untitled 29. Adonais 30. Charlotte Sometimes 31. Apart 32. It's Over 33. The Promise 34. Going Nowhere 35. A Boy I Never Knew 37. Wrong Number 38. There is no if... 39. Just Like Heaven 40. Club America 41.

Cloudberry Not the most popular list probably, but in the end more easy for me than I thought. ;)
We have similar likes!
no '2 late' or 'a chain of flowers' equals totally subjective list that i don't agree with.
That list would almost be not laughable if it went backwards... even then, to quote namepa "useless"

A Forest would be at the top of my list followed by Just Like Heaven and Pictures Of You. Kinda ridiculous to put Harold and Joe ahead of Just Like Heaven.

Except for "The Big Hand" and "Lament", no Cure b-side, no matter how good, deserves to be in the top 50. Similarly, nothing from "Wild Mood Swings" or "Three Imaginary Boys' (except "Boys Don't Cry" or the title track) does, either.That said, it's very cool a publication is devoting itself to such thorough fandom. Interesting list, even if I disagree.
Ridiculous. The Cure is one of the best b-side bands I've ever known. "This Twilight Garden" outright owns.
Nothing post-"Wish" is in the Top 50, basically.
