[14] The Cure, ‘Just Like Heaven’

Junior’s mum reports that this was a bigger success: it had Junior up and boogie-ing with panda, a handy Robert Smith lookalike. The song reminds me of the summer, and getting a taste of heartbreak, but otherwise I was a bit ambivalent about The Cure while somehow having loads of their records.

It’s a lovely tune – even the Dinosaur Jr version is sweet until he starts roaring – and Smith keeps the yelping in check. I saw Katie Melua performing it on Popworld or something a few weeks back, treating us to an acoustic take which was designed to show the astonished masses that she’d cleverly found a Real Song behind the nasty loud rock noise. Well done, Katie.

Come the revolution…
