Best Songs From The Cure


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Primary

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.

42 One Hundred Years

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.

Should be much more higher

Awesome song

43 The Last Day of Summer

The definitive The Cure song, my favourite. Gives me chills every time, the lead guitar over the meandering rhythm guitar works wonders with Smith's heartfelt lyrics here. - Bicyclerepairman

Awesome should be top 20

The rhythm of the song, it's calm, the instruments are so well conected to each other, it's a boom of relaxation or sth

44 Bloodflowers

This song has everything!

45 Cut
46 The Baby Screams
47 Jumping Someone Else's Train

Should definitely in the top ten!

50 Homesick

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.

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.

52 The Figurehead
53 Open

This should be number one. Never in the history of music have I head a song so ominous and distressing. Masterfully crafted and fear inducing.

Overlooked twisted Cure progressive masterpiece. Perfect for opening every Cure show ever

One of my favorite songs by the Cure. Second only to, you guessed it, just like heaven

Just. Grrreat.

One of the Best Songs!

55 The Drowning Man
56 If Only Tonight We Could Sleep

The MTV Unplugged version is a masterpiece. Just listen it. No other The Cure's song beat that

57 Let's Go to Bed

This song must be higher for sure!

58 Siamese Twins

This song is epic, I don't mind that its this low, you guys are the fans, so I won't argue

I never expected this song to be this low on the list!
It deserves a higher position for sure.

59 The 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.

60 This Twilight Garden

This song! Can't believe it's not top ten! 75? Seriously
