Guess who I wanted to be way back when...
Apparently, I wasn't alone in my endeavours with just a few of many Cure tribute albums as proof.
I selected a handful of my particular favourites from three that came out recently:
And finally NME's February 25th CD companion 'Pictures Of You: A Tribute To Godlike Geniuses The Cure' in light of The Cure's recent 'NME Godlike Genius Award'.
I won't say much more and simply let the music speak for itself...
Besides, Robert Smith gives a far superior introduction than I ever could.
Would you expect anything less from a genius?
"I'm smitten, I'm bitten, I'm hooked, I'm cooked, I'm stuck like glue..."
