10 Most Awesome Cure Videos
In their golden time The Cure is the most productive bands in making music videos. It is also important to notice that The Cure have been making music videos almost as long as there have been music videos. MTV even played seven of their videos all day at that time. From many of their music video for their 30-year musical career, Michael Gallucci has summarized some of the best of them. Check the video below!
Let’s Go to Bed
‘Let’s Go to Bed,’ from 1982, was one of the Cure’s first hits. It’s also one of the poppier songs to come out of their gloomy early period. Watch Robert Smith jammin’ in his jammies!
In Between Days
Super-big hair, motion-sickness-causing point-of-view cameras and random blasts of neon make up this 1985 video for one of our all-time favorite Cure songs
Why Can’t I Be You?
We’re really not sure what’s going on in the video for this 1987 modern-rock hit. One dude has fangs and a cape, another is sporting blackface and Robert Smith is dancing around in a furry costume.
Just Like Heaven
The video for the band’s all-time best song is fittingly ghostly at times. But Robert Smith’s cliff-side performance in this 1987 video is subtly pained.
This 1989 video creeps us out. The song is eerie enough, but the video’s haunted-house setting seals the scary deal. And don’t even get us started on that spider.
Friday I’m in Love
Smith is in a playful mood in this cheery 1992 hit. How playful? He busts some serious dance moves and wears a goofy hat on his head. That’s how playful.
Hot Hot Hot!!!
Another song from 1987’s ‘Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me,’ and another cool video. This one is slick, black and white and features Smith at his most rock-star sleek. Dig that haircut!
Leave it to Robert Smith to set the video for his band’s biggest hit (from 1989) in a suffocating cave. Think he’s trying to tell us something about love here?
This 1983 single features one of the Cure’s greatest riffs. The video is pretty conventional until near the end, when magic tricks and a demonic-looking baby doll join the action.
Robert Smith had normal-looking hair in one of the Cure’s first videos, from 1980. He’s also wielding an instrument, which he rarely did in videos. Nothing flashy here — just an early look at the group.
