But there maybe those out there that aren't as fanatical and may not know how great this band is. This single is soooooo goooood. The A-Side is one of the great Cure singles. It is a perfect pop song. For me it also brings up great memories of my youth being at the Chicago Blowout skateboard competition where Tony Hawk skated to this song. The B-side "The Exploding Boy", though is also great. I don't mean great for a B-side, it is just great. This is one of those times where you shake your head asking how this cut didn't make it onto an album. Why is this a B-side? As you get into The Cure you find that this actually happens a lot with them. They just write great songs. They write too many great songs and so they have to put some songs on singles. There are only a few bands in my opinion that can do this consistently and The Cure is at the top of my list. Hence the reason I buy all their singles and why I recommend that "Connect The Dots" boxset. And to drive the point home even further I have to say that this song is probably one of my favourite songs. That list of course is pretty good, but that is the nature of making a favourites list by The Cure.
