'Just Like Heaven' #69 on CoS Top 100 Songs

'Just Like Heaven' comes in at #69 on Consequence of Sound's Top 100 Songs Ever list. Here's what they say: “Just Like Heaven” sounds like Samantha Baker and Jake Ryan. It sounds like first kisses and milkshakes with two straws. It’s the tune frontman Robert Smith considers to be The Cure’s best pop song, and the biggest from 1987’s Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me. It was inspired by a day on the sea shore with Smith’s wife, which, with lyrics like “Spinning on the dizzy edge/ I kissed her face and kissed her head/ And dreamed of all the ways I had to make her glow,” makes her one lucky lady. The song was recorded at a vineyard in the south of France, and the descending guitar riff dancing with the ‘80s keys and jumping drums make it sound just as happy as the title suggests. -Amanda Koellner (Thanks @JodieSometimes)


  1. #69 ?! Come on... And only one Cure song among 100 ?!!!

  2. ...and found myself alone alone
    alone above a raging sea
    that stole the only girl i loved
    and drowned her deep inside of me...

  3. Only for the lyrics, it deserved to be higher.
