Cure Tribute Songs...

My favoruite three tracks from this weeks NME free CD "Pictures of You - A Tribute to Godliek Geniuses: The Cure".

1. The Big Pink - Love Song
2. The Dandy Warhols - Primary
3. The Get Up Kids - Close To Me

I'd never heard of The Big Pink before but their version of 'Love Song' is brilliant. So slow and haunting. They're signed to 4AD and I'm now going to have to try and track down some of their stuff.

The Big Pink and Dandy Warhols tracks are up there with two of my other all time favourite Cure cover songs - both of A Forest - one an easy listening version by Nouvelle Vague and the other a goth/thrash version by Creaming Jesus.
