Despite their post-punk beginnings and their goth visuals, The Cure actually wrote some of the world’s most iconic pop songs. During the eighties, Robert Smith and the band delivered an array of perfect material destined to make the mixtapes of all who heard them.
The track was written in 1987 and released on Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me seeing the band become more popular than ever across the globe. However, the foundations of the track come from a little closer to home and show off just how illustrative a writer Robert Smith is.
‘Just Like Heaven’ was The Cure’s eleventh top 40 hit in the UK, staying n the charts for five weeks during October and November 1987, peaking at number 29.
