  1. Great game although there’re only two songs from The Cure 😦
    It’s addictive. I thought that I could find just “commercial” bands but I was wrong, fortunately.

  2. I´m really glad you liked it, Paco. I also like The Cure.Which is your favourite song by THE CURE?

    • It’s very difficult to answer that. I have a favourite album, ‘Disintegration’ (their 8th album), but just a song…
      ‘A forest’ could be my most listened song. It’s quite simple (the drums, for example) and it really seems that he’s looking for the girl in the forest.
      ‘A letter to Elise’, because of the lyrics, ‘Bloodflowers’, ‘Just like heaven’ or ‘Why can’t I be you?’ are, surely in the top five.
      And yours?

      • It´s difficult for me to choose just one and I wouldn´t like to fall into gender stereotypes but one of my favorites is “BOYS DON´T CRY”. It brings back good memories…….
