The Cure – just like Heaven (album: kiss me kiss me kiss me 1987)

This song is by the cure. My love for the cure started when I was about 12 years old. There was a music TV show that presented bands and showed a few of their video clips, it was a one hour show dedicated to a band. when the cure was on, my brother recorded it. I couldn’t stop watching this tape. I remember thinking that Robert Smith was the coolest guy ever. His voice, hair, make-up, shoes and of course music, I’ve absorbed everything! Thanks to him I don’t mind spiders at all... I still think he is one of the coolest guys alive.
This song is one of their most magical songs! Quite a masterpiece.

What’s this song about?According to Smith, "The song is about hyperventilating—kissing and fainting to the floor." The lyrics were inspired by a trip with his then-girlfriend (and later wife) Mary Poole to Beachy Head in southern England. Smith said the opening line of the song ("Show me, show me, show me how you do that trick") refers to his childhood memories of mastering magic tricks, but added "on another [level], it's about a seduction trick, from much later in my life”(Wikipedia – Just Like Heaven)
