Lovesong (from Dis­in­te­gra­tion, 1989)

“It’s a time­less song. Billie Hol­i­day could have sung Lovesong in her day, yet it’s The Cure’s song. It’s amaz­ing, con­sid­er­ing how it’s pro­duced, it could ac­tu­ally be decades older than it is, so it re­ally stands out to me. I love how Robert Smith used his artis­tic li­cence to create this oth­er­worldly thing, but un­der­neath he’s made sure he’s writ­ten a bril­liant song, which I think all pop artists should do. When I heard the Adele cover of that song it made me re­alise what a great song it truly is. Her’s is a nice in­ter­pre­ta­tion, too.”
