The Cure Survivor - Tier 1 - Round 2

The first elimination from the top tier was "Friday I'm in Love", closely followed by "Sinking" and "Cut", but not enough to survive!

One of many dull pop songs from that mid-80s era (Let's Go To Bed, The Walk, The Lovecats...). Easily the least interesting aspect of Smith's songwriting for me. Sometimes he does it perfectly though, as in Just Like Heaven, and sometimes it's downright atrocious, as in Friday I'm in Love - Inbetween Days probably won't go just now, but nice to see that the other stinker is out.

It's probably obvious at this point that I gravitate heavily toward the minimalist, shadowy element of The Cure, but Just Like Heaven is one of the most perfectly-orchestrated pop songs I have ever heard.

I have seen a few articles declaring it the most perfect pop song ever recorded

I would definitely argue with you on that one for a while, not that I don't think Hey Ya! is up there.

It must be one if those articles said so.

But the question still lingers - did J Mascis do it better?

I never said that because the article said so it was true, just saying that it's not an uncommon opinion.

One that I hold.

Regardless, don't you go starting that argument again

A well-crafted pop song is a wonderful thing.
