What’s your favourite Cure song? Where does the memory take you? We asked some of their illustrious fans and the Q readership for their most cherished Cure memories.

James Dean Bradfield

Push (from The Head On The Door, 1985)

“The intro goes on for about two and a half minutes, I used to go mad to it, jumping around. Push has amazing drums, almost like a sports programme intro. A massive leap in production, on their way to being one of the biggest bands in the world. Amazing. That was the start of my air-drumming career.”

Nicky Wire

Their hair...

“I just liked the hair, really. I liked them but I could never get past those fucking trainers he [Robert Smith] wore. Big white Reeboks. But we’re doing Meltdown [at London’s Southbank Centre in June, curated by Smith] with them now, so I love ’em!”

Sean Moore

A Forest (from Concert: The Cure Live, 1984)

“Remember the live album, Concert? That’s the version I liked. It’s just a bit more… live! A bit more meat on it, the bass, the atmosphere. I first saw it on TV on one of those Whistle Test specials. One of my first introductions to goth and the idea of goth.”
