The Cure is a British rock band formed in Crawley, West Sussex, in 1976. The group members include Robert Smith (vocals, guitar), Simon Gallup (bass), Jason Cooper (drums), and Roger O'Donnell (keyboards). Since the band's formation, the makeup of the members has changed many times, however, the only constant member has been Robert Smith. The Cure were a part of the new wave and post-punk movement that was sweeping across the United Kingdom during the 70s. By the time The Cure had released their second album they were a formidable force and already were asserting strong influence on the direction of the new gothic rock and alternative rock movement. It wasn't until their fourth album that the band's style transitioned into more of a pop sensibility, and this is probably how most listeners know The Cure today. But make no mistake, their earlier music was dark, tormented and beautiful and helped in mobilising the gothic movement. The Cure's music is characterised by Robert Smith's melancholic and droning voice, which is often backed by reverbed guitars and atmospheric keyboards. The band's songs often deal with themes of love, loss, loneliness, despair, and death. However, the band has also been known to write more upbeat songs about hope and happiness. The Cure is considered to be one of the most influential rock bands of the 20th century, and they have inspired many other artists across a wide range of genres. Some of the best cure songs are "Boy's Don't Cry", "Just Like Heaven", "Friday I'm in Love", and "Plainsong". Their music has spanned decades and multiple genres, and because of this, everyone has their own favourite cure song. This makes them one of the popular bands of all time. The band's debut album, "Three Imaginary Boys" was released in 1979 and reached number 46 on the UK Albums Chart. The singles "Boys Don't Cry" and "Jumping Someone Else's Train" were also released from the album. The Cure's second album, "Seventeen Seconds", was released in 1980 and reached number 20 on the UK Albums Chart. The singles "A Forest" and "Primary" were released from the album. The Cure's third album, "Faith", was released in 1981 and reached number 14 on the UK Albums Chart. The singles "The Hanging Garden" and "Primary" were released from the album. The Cure's fourth album, "Pornography", was released in 1982 and reached number eight on the UK Albums Chart. The singles "The Walk" and "The Figurehead" were released from the album. The Cure's fifth album, "The Top", was released in 1984 and reached number four on the UK Albums Chart. The singles "Shake Dog Shake" and "Bird Mad Girl" were released from the album. The Cure's sixth album, "The Head on the Door", was released in 1985 and reached number seven on the UK Albums Chart. The singles "In Between Days" and "Close to Me" were released from the album. The Cure's seventh album, "Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me", was released in 1987 and reached number six on the UK Albums Chart. The singles "Why Can't I Be You?", "Catch", and "Just Like Heaven" were released from the album. The Cure's eighth album, "Disintegration", was released in 1989 and reached number three on the UK Albums Chart. The singles "Lovesong", "Pictures of You", and "Fascination Street" were released from the album. The Cure's ninth album, "Wish", was released in 1992 and reached number one on the UK Albums Chart. The singles "High", "Friday I'm in Love", and "A Letter to Elise" were released from the album. The Cure's tenth album, "Wild Mood Swings", was released in 1996 and reached number two on the UK Albums Chart. The singles "Mint Car", "Strange Attraction", and "Bloodflowers" were released from the album. The Cure's eleventh album, "Bloodflowers", was released in 2000 and reached number seven on the UK Albums Chart. The singles "Maybe Someday" and "Out of This World" were released from the album.

Though "Lovesong" was released as a single, it was not written as one. It was originally intended for the Cure's 1989 album Disintegration, but Robert Smith felt that it didn't fit with the dark tone of the record. Instead, he gave it to his wife Mary for her birthday. The song ended up being a huge hit for the Cure, reaching number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US and becoming one of the most popular Cure songs of all time. Despite its success, "Lovesong" is a pretty sad song. It's about unrequited love and the pain that comes with it. Nevertheless, the catchy melody and Robert Smith's e...more

The opener to The Cure’s magnum-opus Disintegration is as grandiose as the album itself. Released in May 1989, its lush, orchestral melodies introduce the album and build to a crescendo for over two and half minutes before Smith eventually adds vocals. Although it's often an afterthought, given its short duration, it still to this day remains as one of the Cures' best songs. Gregorian chants and other Catholic liturgies are referred to as Plainsong. The track has a mystical, almost hypnotic rhythm that is similar to religious music.
