Music - Rediscovery, my retro taste grows!


With my music of late -I'm going back to very happy time in my life, my teenage years in 80's... (Not so long ago really!)

I just bought the Cure's Greatest Hits. Track nine is one of favourites - I can listen to it over and over and over again. Melodic guitar working in arpegios down and up, lengthy solos of electric keyboard, bass and drums, simply constructed songs, catchy tunes, but edgy not mainstream.

Sure they dressed like Goths and I was never into that, but the music is deep, it has a brooding power much like that of Roxy Music, but it has a far quicker rock beat....

Remember this one?

Just Like Heaven

"Show me how you do that trick
The one that makes me scream" she said
"The one that makes me laugh" she said
And threw her arms around my neck
"Show me how you do it
And I promise you I promise that
I'll run away with you
I'll run away with you"

Spinning on that dizzy edge
I kissed her face and kissed her head
And dreamed of all the different ways I had
To make her glow
"Why are you so far away?" she said
"Why won't you ever know that I'm in love with you
That I'm in love with you"

You
Soft and only
You
Lost and lonely
You
Strange as angels
Dancing in the deepest oceans
Twisting in the water
You're just like a dream

Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe her name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone alone
Alone above a raging sea
That stole the only girl I loved
And drowned her deep inside of me

You
Soft and only
You
Lost and lonely
You
Just like heaven .


I drive along in a dream thinking of a special someone ...... who puts me in a daze

I loved the Smiths, the Cure... in fact any of those slightly heady groups with a soulful anxt.

and as you pointed out... the lyrics are actually really good.

Dazed and confused mush!

More cure for you!

You're so gorgeous I'll do anything
I'll kiss you from your feet
To where your head begins
You're so perfect you're so right as rain
You make me
Make me hungry again

Everything you do is irresistable
Everything you do is simply kissable
Why can't I be you?

I'll run around in circles
Til I run out of breath
I'll eat you all up
Or I'll just hug you to death
You're so wonderful
Too good to be true
You make me
Make me hungry for you

Everything you do is simply delicate
Everything you do is quite angelicate
Why can't I be you?

You turn my head when you turn around
You turn the whole world upside down
I'm smitten I'm bitten I'm hooked I'm cooked
I'm stuck like glue
You make me
Make me hungry for you

Everything you do is simply dreamy
Everything you do is quite delicious
Why can't I be you?
Why can't I be you?
Why can't I be you?
