Our 10 favorite Cure songs
After more than two decades of black hair, pale skin, and melancholy music, things are looking — dare we say it? — bright for the Cure this summer. ?The End of the World,? the first single from the goth vets? self-titled album (released June 29), is quickly climbing modern rock charts.

But before the summer heat melts Robert Smith?s carefully applied makeup, we look at 10 Cure songs that make us happy to be sad.
