Song of the Day - Lovesong




The Cure - Lovesong
Album: Disintegration (1989)




I'm pretty sure you know that 'Lovesong' is one of my favourite tracks. It came in at #2 on It's My Kind of Scene's Top 100 Songs of the 1980s and recently made our list of twenty songs that could be considered our all-time favourites. 'Lovesong' is The Cure at their best; somber, packed full of lyrical gold and dominated by Smith's emotional performance. There have been many covers over the years, but only two come close to matching the impact of the original. The Aching Heart remix of Tori Amos' version is fantastic and Adele's cover on 21 is... well, it's Adele. So it's amazing. For your listening pleasure, we've got all three. Enjoy 'Lovesong!'
