"Robert Smith has been making music with The Cure
since the goth-rock band formed in 1976 – and in 41 years' time, his
group has given us quite an extensive body of work (including 13 albums,
4 EPs and numerous compilations). His classic songs and his eccentric
image have captivated audiences on both sides of the Atlantic, making
The Cure one of the most internationally successful acts in alternative
Over the course of his illustrious four-decade career, Smith has performed with his idol David Bowie, appeared as a superhero version of himself in an episode of South Park, and reportedly even inspired the look of Tim Burton’s 1990 cult classic Edward Scissorhands. His favorite cover of a Cure song is Dinosaur Jr.’s “Just Like Heaven."
Today (April 21), we’re celebrating Smith’s 58th birthday by revisiting 15 classic tracks by The Cure."
