Char­lotte Some­times (from Con­cert: The Cure Live, 1984)

Q (UK) - - Cure -

“Part of the sound­track of grade 10 was Con­cert: The Cure Live;

their first live al­bum from 1984. I lis­tened to it re­lent­lessly with my best friend, who was a goth, while I was a punk. The Cure was her mu­sic and Bad Brains was mine but we had a lot of cross­over and this al­bum was en­joyed by both of us. Smith’s pop sensibility cut through the gloom of the band with the haunted melody of Char­lotte Some­times. I can still see her dyed black hair swing­ing to new wave dance-y bassline of A For­est.”
