Now That's What I Call Music Selected Track #2 - The Cure - The Love Cats

The Cure are probably one of Breaking More Waves favourite all time bands. From the dark despair and decay of Pornography and the morbid grandeur of Disintegration to some of their perfectly twisted sugar coated pop songs such as Friday I’m In Love, In Between Days and Close To Me, The Cure’s back catalogue must be the envy of many other bands.

Often seen as gloomy outsiders, this has never stopped The Cure embracing the mainstream singles charts, and hence when the cartoon jazz of The Love Cats reached their highest chart position to that date in the UK at Number 7 it felt like the freaks and weirdo’s had been let in through the back door. Still played at indie clubs around the country, The Love Cats is a bona fide classic pop tune and is one of the highlights of the first Now That's What I Call Music Vol 1 album.
