A Song for Friday

Just heard this on the radio, and realised this is one of my favourite falling in love songs, so I should probably use it, if not in this book, but one day. In the meantime, here's a song for Friday. I defy it not to cheer you up. Which is a bit
of an odd concept I know, with the Cure (I still think one of the funniest things on the Mary Whitehouse Experience was their pisstake of miserable Cure songs), but this really is fab.

This song always makes me think of elder daughter; it was in heavy rotation (along with "One" by U2 and "Walking on Broken Glass" by Annie Lennox) when we brought her home from hospital.

My wife always comments about any new Cure song "Oh, this is a bit upbeat for The Cure." The Cure have in fact mostly been upbeat since about 1995, when Robert Smith got tired of being miserable and started to have fun gardening roses with his girlfriend. It's just most people's concept of The Cure stems from before 1993 and Wish.

"Friday, I'm in Love" is, incidentally, my ringtone.

Persephone, for me it's a memory of the early days of my marriage, and coming home from work on Fridays (-: I think it's lovely.

Rob I was probably mainly listening to the Cure in the mid 80s when they were still miserable. Not that I minded the misery tho, I love Boys Don't Cry and Charlotte Sometimes (only discovered a couple of years ago that it was based on the fab book by Penelope Farmer which was my favourite book aged 9 - Penelope wrote a brilliant blog post about going to see the Cure playing it!).
The misery song I could never stand was the Smiths' Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now. Yes, Morrisey, so am I ever time I hear it...
