Brit Face Off: Depeche Mode vs. the Cure

The Austin Chronicle matches up Depeche Mode and The Cure in an epic ACL Festival battle. Silly, yet fun article, but one huge mistake....
"Song they (The Cure) shouldn't play: "Give Me It"."
The writer completely misspelled Wrong Number. ;)
(Thanks Dana and @kafdancer)


  1. Love it!

    (and I don't mind Wrong Number....)

  2. LOL. Totally agree on Wrong Number. I don't hate the song, but I've always felt it gets played much more often in concert than it deserves to.

  3. well it's the only song reeves was involved in making so i think it's pretty obvious that they play it now that he is in the band. i like it! the hungry ghost should be dropped from the set completely. and the end of the world.

  4. Oh but I would die to hear Give Me It live!

  5. Yep...wrong number is defo a wrong number to be playing but is a handy track to have in the setlist so you can go to the toilet :)
    Correct me if im wrong but I think Robert said before that they cant play Give me it without Porl due to the saxophone!

  6. Give Me It is one of the few songs I've never heard live that I desperately want to. That and Cut. Wrong Number is the perfect time to take a leak and get another beer during a Cure show.

  7. I am still waiting for 2 late!

  8. I am still waiting for 2 late!

  9. Depeche Mode and The Cure.

    Chalk and Cheese.

    Shit and Sugar.
