INTRODUCING YOU TO BANDS YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW, BUT TOTALLY SHOULD.
Clearly this is not a week where I’m introducing a band you’ve never heard of. After a career spanning 40 years (yup…. 40!, you’re so very very old), they are clearly artists that you have at the very least heard of. Perhaps you’re a huge fan as I am and can sing along to just about every song, or maybe you’re only really familiar with their mainstream successes of “Friday I’m in Love” and “High”. No matter what, you know of Robert Smith and his ever changing bandmates. But do you really know them?
Well I’m here to bring them back to the forefront of your playlists, because they have a collection of music that never quite gained the popularity of the excellent (and personal favorite for personal reasons) “Just Like Heaven”, or “Close to Me” that you should get into. Some of these songs are utter perfection and can complement the right moment or mood for a person. Smith’s voice is an instrument that not only elevates, but challenges everything else in the band’s arsenal, and melodies that shouldn’t work, do thanks to him. So these are songs you should acquaint yourself with. Plus, Just Like Heaven, because…… Just Like Heaven.
