I'm the Cure nerd here. *laughs*

Depressing music is uplifting. Ergo, you're both right. Some of the most depressing songs ever make me both depressed and happy.

I mean isn't it sort of happy and accepting opposed to cold and depressing?

Well, it depends on the interpretation. Some could find it sparsely happy while others could find it bleak.

I'm a huge Bowie fan. I've said it before but the next album you should get is Outside. It is amazing.

Haven't heard enough to really say, I've only really heard his hits.

I've been on a huge Bowie kick lately.

Screwtape: Outside is one I'll probably look into after I finish the Berlin Trilogy.

You might be mixing me up with the other musketeers (LemonMelon and LemonMacPhisto). I'm one of the big detractors of Radiohead around here.

I have always felt like it is accepting something. You will always be this way but rejoice in that. So I suppose it is all about interpretation.
