The Cure Survivor - The Top

Please vote for your THREE FAVORITE SONGS!

Sorry for the delay, I had a lot of stuff going on today.

Anyways, ONWARDS!

It almost looked like there was going to be a six-way tie for Pornography, but even with all of the write-in votes, there were four obvious winners:

Moving on to the Tier 1 survivor:
One Hundred Years - 9 Votes
The Hanging Garden - 9 Votes
A Strange Day - 9 Votes
The Figurehead - 8 Votes

Now we arrive one of my five favorite albums, The Top. However, I'm in the minority opinion there, this being the last album to make the tier 2 cut

I know it's confusing, guys, but please vote for your THREE FAVORITE SONGS!

There, maybe that will help

Might as well have titled this one The Caterpillar + Friends.

I voted for Dressing Up and The Top as well, because they actually know what they want to be. The former is catchy and the latter is a pretty good Pornography leftover.

I'm so torn on this one, I really like this album.

I can't chose between The Caterpillar, Dressing Up, The Top and The Empty World. The only song I'm sure about is Wailing Wall. That's one of my favorites songs by The Cure, period.

(apologies for the typo on The Caterpillar in the poll)

Absolutely none of them.

I actually tend to agree, but I wasn't just going to vote for The Caterpillar and leave it at that, though it's the only song here I really love.

Meanwhile, narrowing down Head on the Door to just four excellent tracks will be nigh on impossible.

Yes, actually!

Nannerfishbones, Birdmad Girl (which is just beautiful), and...maybe Give Me It? Yeah, let's do that.

Geesh, I had no idea how unpopular this album was .


Anyways, ended up going with Wailing Wall, The Caterpillar and The Empty World.

I think another problem is that this album was just not played live that much; only Shake Dog Shake really exists in the recent repertoire, and about half the album didn't survive The Top era lineup.

Then again, The Caterpillar, Dressing Up and NANNERFISHBONES have been played in 2012, so maybe it's coming back into vogue?

The Top does bare similarities to what The Cure are doing now, so I'm not shocked that they're playing more of it.

I'm amused that the wiki page for the album used to have that little factoid on it (about them pretty much abandoning the album live after the era ended), but obviously it's gone now.

Speaking of The Cure live, I went to go look at the setlist for The Cure in Orange and it reminded me...I totally left Japanese Whispers out of this competition. However, being a "compilation" album, it would not have been in the original poll anyways. I think I'll have enough room in the tier 2 or 3 survivor to throw two tracks from it in, so at the end of this, when we're wrapping everything up, we'll have a poll for that one as well.
