    1. The Cure never had a number 1 hit in the Netherlands, the highest was Lullaby that reached nr. 9.

    2. Or had ever a number one hit in the world. The best one was Love song that was number 2 in the billboard 100. The biggest (chart) hit till this day.

    4. He mentioned that sometimes but really A Forest made it to number 31 in the dutch Top 40 it stayed in the charts for 4 weeks. Not a very big hit.
