My Music Monday
I'd say that was my most favourite part of the Cure's song "Disintegration", but as I listed to all eight and one-half minutes (yes folks, another long tune), I keep changing my mind about which part of the song really makes it a stand-out.
The group has been around forever it seems - at least 30 years - and for me they have release no better song, no better album than Disintegration. Yeah, I don't care if I ever hear "Lovesong" again, but the disk is stellar, especially the title song.
Don't let the eight plus minutes fool you - it doesn't seem that long and it never bores me.
When I break down my liking of the Cure, I can't quite pinpoint it. Yes, they're down - which I like, but some of their stuff you can dance too (oh Morty, Jon & Co will remember Wednesday's at Wall St.),. It'd be tough to dance to this selection, but never say never.
I think I like this song because of the passion and desperation that Robert Smith conveys - it never seems forced or fake, but pulled from pure emotion. Or he's a really good actor.
Consider the album came out in 1989 (?) both song and album hold up extremely well. I hope you sit through all 8:25, but I get it is not for everyone.
