A Let­ter To Elise (from Wish, 1992)

“1993. We played a big hockey game. Af­ter, my mix­tape was play­ing in our rental car. A Let­ter To Elise started. I’m not sure if it’s the long in­tro be­fore Robert sings that evoked the emo­tion, but I started to feel bad about us los­ing the game. Tears built up and one rolled. I never shed tears from hockey. The tone and sound of The Cure did it. Wish was what hooked me into The Cure. There was some­thing about their sound at that time – it puts me in a place still to this day, only no tears are shed. Just a great feel­ing of nostalgia!”
