Radio 73, side B, track 3: “Close To Me” by The Cure

The Cure - Close To MeOh, The Cure, I hadn’t recorded many of your songs as a kid, but what I did record I sure liked.  I was always a little scared of you, but I still really liked you.  Before I recorded this one off of BOB, I don’t think I’d ever heard it before.  It’s downright upbeat for y’all.  I love that simple tinkling piano in the background.  It’s almost child-like.  But then the vocals kick down that door, and we’re back to the wtf that is your brilliance, The Cure.  I hope this isn’t the last we hear from you on here.  I can’t stay in your mind for extended periods of time, but I really enjoy the time I do spend.  Not that “enjoy” is probably a word you understand, The Cure.
