I just made this playlist for Punk Rock Mama, a notorious internet blogger :) And the first video I found was The Cure's A Forest. I remember listening to this song years ago, over and over again. I always imagined the forest being very dense and misty. Like somewhere deep in the Olympia National Forest. I just song the original video for this song tonight and the forest they used in the video is weaksauce :). It's totally not dense and it's not misty.
Anyway, The Cure is one of my all time favorite bands as well, and I might add they are some of the best live performers I have ever seen. As a matter of fact they are the only band that I have seen that actually sounded good in a big stadium. Well, it was the San Jose Sharks arena, but to cover all that space with good sound is usually a hard feat to do, and they pulled it off. I can't say the same for U2 :(
This playlist contains mostly stuff from the 1980s, which I find to be their best stuff. I would also say that their album Disintegration is a great listen to all the way through. I've done some of my best painting listening to that album.
