Hackskeptic’s 500 Greatest Songs: The Cure – Friday I’m In Love

4 T

342 – The Cure – Friday I’m In Love (1992)
Written by The Cure
Produced by David M. Allen and Robert Smith
Label – Fiction/Elektra

“Friday I’m In Love” is an incredible pop song on two counts. It’s the perfectly refreshing antidote to the liberal dashes of doom and gloom Robert Smith regularly dealt out, but more than that it’s an example of his skill in diversity that shines. So many bands and pop artists are shackled by one dimensional song structures, limited melodies and generically stuck in a hole they can’t dig their way out of. Smith proves his craft with Byrds like guitar jangles, a joyous lyric and melody. “Mad Bob” would never sound so happy.
