Pictures of You

by The Cure

~ Yes, I have been known to dance ~

I was never a huge fan of the Cure in there earlier years, even though I lived in Europe in the mid-80s when they were building a huge following on the continent. I got to be a fan off of the strength of “Fascination Street”, and it’s still a favorite today.

But this is the one I dance to.

And by “dance” we’re not talking about something from the Step Up movies or anything like that. But when I used to cover late nights or overnights at the radio station, I would slip this one in, crank up the in studio monitors, and spend 5 minutes dancing up and down the hall outside the main booth. It’s just got a good groove for those of us that can’t dance worth a crap to still be able to dance. It’s a nice rolling bassline that lets you keep your feet moving without having to think about it too much, and the guitar doesn’t distract from what you’re trying to get your body to do.

And since I can really only muster about one thing at a time with the body at this point, that’s a very good thing
