Best Songs From The Cure

The Top Ten

1 Just Like Heaven Just Like Heaven Cover Art

It's the best song on the whole world! I don't understand why it's number six! I think is the best! number one!

"A past trip to the sea shore. " Robert Smith

This song best exemplifies what is really The Cure. I used to make my high school boring routine homeworks on The Cure and I remember this song would give the last boost to finish them!

Easily the most fun. My best friend got the club DJ to put this on with dry ice everywhere for my 19th birthday before anyone had started to dance, then made me swirl around in it by myself. It was just like heaven.

2 Lovesong Lovesong Cover Art

This song has the best lyrics, and the keyboard is really chilling. I think it is Robert Smith's songwriting at its best. He wrote it as a wedding gift for his wife. This is one of those songs that should never be covered, because no cover is ever going to be close to the original. I love THE CURE!

My mother would sing this to be when I was a baby and was the song she would sing to me to make some fall asleep. This song has so much meaning and the love in this song is true

The lyrics match the rhythm so hard! The instruments and robert's voice combined are the sound of perfection, by far, one of the greatest songs of the cure

Okay, this song has those powerful lyrics that come from the inside and the way it is sang : with melancholy and despair of a broken heart. This song should be the number one.

3 Lullaby Lullaby Cover Art

Fantastic, the dark lyrics and the awersome music it is just the best cure's song of the cure's best album

Best song Base, keyboard and Vocals are super.

Mesmerizing Cure song kinda creepy sounding great crisp sounding production on the song as well

Love this song.. Perfect vocal.. The music is outstanding.. Could'nt asked for more

4 Friday I'm in Love Friday I'm in Love Cover Art

Pure genius! Its one of these songs you never get tired of like smells like teen spirit or wonderwall or all the Beatles stuff

This is a work of genius. The complex layering, musical density and beautiful melody combined with Robert Smith's voice have created an astonishing work of art that makes virtually all other rock and pop offerings sound thin by comparison.

The first cure song I ever heard even before I knew about the cure I constantly heard this song on my computer library and on cd's as a kid while not knowing much about the cure at all! Great song!

One of my favorites songs ever, not just from the cure, it is one of the best songs of all the time

5 Pictures of You Pictures of You Cover Art

One of the most gorgeous songs I've ever heard. Something about it teleports you to another dimension every time without fail. The guitar riffs in the intro (and throughout) are crazy euphoric. The constant rhythm led by the drums drives the song forward relentlessly. Robert Smith is my dad.

I love this song, it makes me cry and smile at the same time. Such a well written son and it's definitely in my top 3 favourites.

Love this song this song was played in an episode of One Tree Hill season 6 Peyton from One Tree Hill Loves The Cure

One of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard

6 A Forest A Forest Cover Art

I know others are more popular, but this song should be in the top 2 or 3 cure songs. It's my favorite cure song by far. The lyrics speak of longing and loss (shocker! ) and the music fits the lyrics perfectly. Really, really great song.

Musically speaking this is one of the best written songs in the last 35 years. The simplicity of the bass, the complexity of the guitar and the lyrics. This song is still very vital today.

I remember first hearing this when the album was released - loved it ever since! Still play it almost every day: on good equipment new details buried in the mix emerge all the time. Remarkable song

Every true "Cure fan" knows that this masterpiece should be considered as their best work ever.

7 Boys Don't Cry Boys Don't Cry Cover Art

We all know this should be number one but... But nothing this is number one!

It's beautiful and amazing. The intro is the best part.

This song is amazing! Can't believe it's not on the list!

A incredible 80s Party Classic,

8 In Between Days In Between Days Cover Art

Definitely one of their best songs so go ahead and move it on up

How is it possible that this song is not in top ten? And Friday I'm in love is 4th? Come on people, wash your ears! Sorry, but I had to say it... wait, was that Tourette syndrome?

Are you serious? This is one of the most beautiful songs ever!

Best song ever ever ever ever... Etc

9 The Lovecats The Lovecats Cover Art

Heard this song on "The History of New Music" for the first time years ago. My favorite by far.

Great song very distinctive reminds me of alley cats.

By far the best cure song

I was addicted to this song for years! I love the lusty verbiage.

10 Close to Me Close to Me Cover Art

What if I prefer close to me than baby screams.

This was my favorite song when it came out, so I'm biased.. but am a huge Cure fan, and am very intimately familiar with their music. I think this should be in place of Friday I'm in Love.

It has a nice, cheery, minimalist vibe. It for some reason gives me nostalgia for the show Adventure Time, because of the synth and that catchy xylophone riff sounds like it came straight from the backround of it

Because I gotta have Faith

The Contenders

11 Disintegration Disintegration Cover Art

Simply the most well constructed song of all time. Arguably of course. Robert goes to the deepest depths of what heartbreak is truly about, in a manner with poetically and painfully woven verses, that will either destroy you with how you might relate, or seduce you with the almost epic, elegant, and somewhat fast paced guitar rhythm. Surely, this is The Cure's most underrated song, and one of the world's most moving pieces that will literally take you back to the scars of your past.

One of the greatest songs of all time, never mind one of the best cure songs. Poetic heartbreaking lyrics, great rhythm section, and incredible guitar textures.

This is just a list of The Cure's most popular songs. If the list was truly their best songs, Disintegration would be very near the top. It's a masterpiece.

Don't know how I missed this song over the years. Been a fan for 40 years. Deeper than a lot of the more poppy songs.

12 Fascination Street Fascination Street Cover Art

This is definitely 1 of their bests. Had to vote this because it deserves to be higher up like at number 6. But the bass is amazing and its all around an amazing songs

I like the energy it has without sounding so poppy like friday I'm in love. Nice guitar and bass lines.

Should at least be in the top ten! It's provocative and the groove is just... WOW.

Should be in the top 5. it's not a hit on the radio but it is one of their best

13 The Caterpillar The Caterpillar Cover Art

Uplifting song with an uplifting video

Fantastic, positive, fun song!

14 Maybe Someday Maybe Someday Cover Art

Awesome song, sadly overlooked

Sad but good song

Love this song

Underrated.

15 Why Can't I Be You? Why Can't I Be You? Cover Art
16 A Letter to Elise A Letter to Elise Cover Art

This song is a poetic masterpiece that portrays the harsh but true message love is sometimes not enough in a melodic way that consumes you entirely

This song is genius, you can really feel the emotions stirring in the song and personally, this is my favorite.

If you only heard one Cure song in your lifetime, this should be that song.

This out of all other songs by The Cure makes me tear up every time, it deserves better than #9

17 10:15 Saturday Night 10:15 Saturday Night Cover Art

Oddly wonderful. Reminds me of one of my favorite poets, William Carlos Williams.

Awesome song on a saturday night! with whiskey in hand

This is one of those 'listen to the notes that aren't played' tunes. so restrained and perfectly eerie, but still rocks out.

18 The Walk The Walk Cover Art

The Walk, 100%. Arguably not Cure's best but it deserves my vote. Pure ecstasy and resembles the post-punk new wave surge through the 80s very well

19 Burn Burn Cover Art

Just the best. Immortal song, as Brandon Lee's talent. Very emotional, I really love that song.

Not even comparable to the rest of their songs. Except maybe A Forest.

Love the atmosphere which has been created by this song

Deserves to be much higher

20 Plainsong Plainsong Cover Art

Was so happy when they played this in Ant Man.

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

Epic melancholic beauty. Takes you to a different place entirely.

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

21 Fire in Cairo Fire in Cairo Cover Art
22 Charlotte Sometimes Charlotte Sometimes Cover Art

The girl who took my virginity gave me the Cure in return and this was the song that Standing On The Beach usually was playing during our... well, enough to say that we used to like to park the car and look at the stars...

Such a sweet song. Beautiful!

This is a beautiful masterpiece that deserves to be way above shake dog shake, I hate that song it's one of the only cure songs I do not like cannot believe it was the 1st song they played at the napa, bottlerock festival concert which was an amazing show.

In the top 5 have to be. Is a tremendous brilliant piece of music,top 5 no doubt

23 Primary Primary Cover Art

The whole album faith is a master piece, the completion of what the band had not been able to do on 17 seconds (due to lack of budget) - it all falls in place - only charlotte sometimes is missing. Primary is a shiny Jewel, and as much as I like the studio version, the versions the band played live between 1982 and 1991 are simply awesome, taking the song to yet another level (unfortunately, the ones I've heard since 2005 are simply bad).

Take the double bass for example. So epic.

24 One Hundred Years One Hundred Years Cover Art

Probably my favorite Cure song. It has a very powerful Post-Punk/Gothic Rock Feel.

Pornography was my first Cure album, and I knew from the first track that I would forever love them.

The best song in the best album.

Deserves to be in top 5 at least.

25 Shake Dog Shake Shake Dog Shake Cover Art

Violent and dirty! rock n roll
