The Cure - The Perfect Boy
Another 13th of the month and another Cure single is released. I've heard this one on some live recordings and videos, and I was looking forward to it. "The Perfect Boy" was going to compliment "The Perfect Girl", I hoped. The Perfect Girl is one of my Top 25 Cure Songs (could there be less?)! It's in no way a pop song the way A Perfect Girl is....bummer. A single? I dunno. The B-sides have been more exciting of late, but don't let that comment lead you to believe that I think Smith is anything less than the genius he is. The 90's were a low point for The Cure. They are back now and this is a pinnacle.
