Best Songs From The Cure


The Contenders: Page 3XW


From the rumbling cello that throbs at the bottom of the mix, the cold, icy synths that drive the song, the simple bass guitar lick to the classic Cure twinkles effects, it's an epic, soothing track that only the Cure could really make.


Disintegration is probably the best album by The Cure. Every song is a complete piece of art, and even though there aren't a lot of people who know this song, I consider it one of the best.

Most Melodious Song of the Cure...I think. It should be no. 1...most people have no taste in music who voted other songs higher. - shanusingh

This song should be in the top 5 at least. It's a great melody that's lets you dream off...

Should be ranked a way higher.

43The Funeral Party

How is this only 89th on the list? Such a haunting song, you can really hear the emotion in Smith's voice.
For me, Faith is the best cure album, and this is my favourite song on that album.


There couldn't possibly be a better introduction to Disintegration than this. It's perfectly emotional and beautiful at the same time, thanks to it's windy synths and breezy guitar. - ArchAces

My fave cure song ever. There's no other song like it. Takes you away with it

Was so happy when they played this in Ant Man.

This song deserve to be in the list. Is a fantastic song.

This is the most incredible song ever written, what's is it doing so far down, it should at least be in the top 5, the cure are divine and this song is their bohemian rhapsody

Amazing their best song isn't even listed until now. Like Friday, Pictures and Elise but Catch is in a class of its own
