The Cure Survivor - Tier 3 Round 8

Well, I forgot to vote in my own damn survivor last round

Looks like it didn't matter, though, someone made the choice I didn't want to and did "Let's Go To Bed" in. Along with "Halo", two songs bite the dust. 12 songs left. 6 Move on. This is getting exciting now.

I'm just now realizing what an incredibly random assortment of songs this is.

I gotta ask; are people voting for songs without actually listening to them? Because 2 Late is one of the most beautiful songs in The Cure's repetoire, a far better song than say, 10:15 or Want. I mean, if you sincerely don't like it, that's cool, but if you're just voting for it without actually listening to it (which I suspect people do, as is the pattern with these sorts of competitions) that sort of goes against the spirit of the whole competition.

(for what it's worth I think that there are at least...a dozen? B-sides that could easily replace half of this list and make it a stronger round, but hey.)

I'm going to stop voting. All the songs left, I either really really like or don't know, and I'm currently immersed in catching up on 2012 listening. Sorry. Looking forward to tier 2.

I don't get the appeal of Want at all.

Well, I voted for 2 Late, and I can say that I have listened to Join the Dots all the way through several times.

It's probably on par with Want for me, but it is nowhere in the league of 10:15, which is a minimalist post-punk standard. Honestly 10:15 is likely one of my all-time favorite tracks from the band.

The fact that Mofo voted for "2 Late" last round as well is giving me a very sad feeling right now.

Okay, cool

I just know that voting for whatever song will save the one song you DO know is rife in these tournaments; a person need not be a hardcore fan (although it's nice!) but at least listen to the songs.

(I like 10:15 too, I just don't think it's better than some of the songs that have been voted off. It's definitely not my least favourite left in this round, though. :P )

Great atmospheric intro and a memorable, catchy melody backed up by some really cool guitar playing.

The Lovecats or The Walk for me now, either way.
