Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you

Fly me to the moon

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you

When a song reminds one of how love between two people was expressed and felt, well you give it a 9, besides it paraphrased Sinatra's "Fly me to the moon".
Great love song.  The words are perfect.
An album like this comes once in a decade...
Classic (ha!) beauty. His voice is melty and their soundscape always transports me...  <3  
Haunting  sound  from The Cure , love it....
The song title is very honest
Love these lyrics, simple but meaningful...

This entire album is perfect.

This album came out when I was 15 and I got it on tape for my 16th birthday and spent 2 weeks trekking the Dolomites listening to it near continuously. It brings back so many memories.

The sleeve notes report "This album was engineered to be played loud, turn it up!". What fantastic advice.
 
Try The Head on the Door album.

I wore that cassette out! Didn't get all of those songs on CD until the "Join The Dots" box set came out in the 2000s.
Just watched the Cure's induction (& performance) into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on YouTube.  40 + years later, they still sound great. And Robert's Smith's voice sounds  unchanged. (how that's possible, I have no idea)

I love the Love Song by The Cure, it just has one of the those melodies that stick in your head!

After years of listening, I say that Pink Floyd is his favorite band....

I love this Cure song.

Love, a very powerfull verb.  
....and so many Cure tunes to choose from, Bill.  Not a bad one to have your favorite.
This is actually curing me on a day I need it so badly... thanks Bill.  Happy Hump Day!
Very,very nice! 
Love the lyrics in this song.  Everyone should have a partner who makes them feel this way.  "You make me feel like I'm home again".  Just moved from 9 to 10.
Good choice, Bill.

What a great song this is.
Eleven, no hesitation. A 12 for the video of it.
I just saw them live and MY god, if such exists, they are good.
I bumped them to a solid fat 10 now...

I was 18 when this album came out and The Cure kind of passed me by at the time. Thanks RP for allowing me to discover them this time round.....so many great tracks!
Great band, great song.
Love the song and Adele's cover is right up there with the best of them.
Bill's daily Cure fix! What a gem! 
Keep them coming.

I dedicate the song to the mother of the awesome Poacher-Mom, cause....without her, no happyness
for Mr. Poacher today! 

Your comment, to me, is equivalent to those guys who go on their knees in public (with a preference to TV-shows) to ask their future wifes to marry them! I dunno....

Such a time and place tune.

I have said it here at RP a few times....UK is the ultimate culture for music over the past 50 years....so many amazing artists.... UK should be very proud of this fact 
Never tire of this ............
Usually The Cure is not my cup of tea, but I must confess: this one is a timeless masterpiece
Love this song - inspired me to register and tell you so

The Cure, Billy Idol, Romeo Void, Gino Vanelli - lots of great dance/club music enhanced by strobe lights.

A song with Adele on the vocals, followed by Love Song. I see what you did there, Bill!
The Cure
I had to kill the volume....annoying....really annoying...noh realized it was tat poor imataion of a real band.....

Growing for sure, since 1989, and new generations of singers agree, like Adele, 23 y, born 5 May 1988, English singerplays the song Love Song (by The Cure), theme included  in their recent Albúm, a very personal and interesting version, I must say.......beautiful!.

spot. on.

For as much as I like The Cure this song has never been a favourite of mine.  Perhaps it's just because it was overplayed on radio when it came out....
"Whenever I'm alone with you
I feel particularly flatulent."

...ah, true love...
still a great song!
Adele covered this on her new album. She sounds even better live.
Nice!
I will always love you...
when I first heard this song it reminded me of one person
and I still love the song
but not the person
Enjoyed it this morning. {#Music}

It is my everlasting regret that I never saw this band live. Good excuse to paint my fingernails black and wear heavy eye make-up to boot! {#Propeller}
The Cure following Bowie.... just like they always have.

Coolest thing about Bowie's 50th birthday bash was he invited his followers + Lou Reed.

Mr. Smith, Frank Black, Billy Corgan, etc.

Great show if you can get it.

Maybe it seems weaker because it's more widely heard, but I think it's wonderful.  Simple, yet meaningful lyrics.  (Well to me, anyhow)

I love The Cure, but it seems like they are getting a lot of air time lately. Grumble.

This song always belongs in a set with 'Could You Be Loved'.
like the song much

i think "saturday night" and "killing an arab" are punk-songs, disintegration is "black-pop". i like "disintegration" more, and sometimes i like "pornography" more.

It seems to be for most people here, and for many rock critics. But my favorite is the more poppy upbeat Wish. The cool thing about the Cure is their music has had enough different phases, lineups and sound configurations that many people can have different favorite Cure albums, a mark of a more interesting band exploring its own creativity, changing and growing.

I will always associate this with the breakup from my first real love back in 1990. {#Cry}

Wonderful song though.



Indeed their best album with various jewels,
but still...
dislike the CURE,
strange - isn´t it?

Such as bargain! A cure song every hour and thirty-three minutes or every 22nd song! (maybe someone should upload some of the Peel Sessions so Bill can span the years a little more)

You got a bargain. This album sounds so lush. It's the Cure's best, IMHO.
Yeah, I'd agree. There are quite a few standouts on this album.
Bill playing Nitin Sawhney two nights in a row put me in such a good mood, I promoted Love Song from nine to ten.
I'm a cheap bastard, so when I came across this CD at a yard sale for $3, I was "Cure"-ious.....(up yours, spell check!). One of my better finds on a Saturday morning.
I love this song, but I would love to hear the reggae version better ...

No. And 10.15 Saturday Night and Killing An Arab are cooler songs. This song now just painfully lingers like intense bleach fumes burning in your nostrils. Ok, maybe not that, but it's just been played so many freakin' times.
I guess this song transends for some, to me it just blends into every other Cure, same beat, same vocal intonations.

wonderful harmonies
Tremendous album.
A++++
There have been some pretty good covers, but the original still stands out as the clear winner.
Overplayed . . . but I don't care this song is beautiful :good-vibes: :music:
