Cure are Boy George's fave band of all time

"Boy George names The Cure as his favourite band of all time on BBC Radio 2's 'Tracks of My Years' (starts at 2:16:05). "I've always been a Cure fan since their punk days, they make really cool pop. They make edgy gothic pop with wonky lipstick, which is always the best kind of pop". Track chosen 'Boys Don't Cry'. "
