A List of the Best Gothic Songs by The Cure


What are the top 10 Gothic songs by The Cure? These are the very best Gothic songs. The answer is open to much debate. The Cure have no shortage of darkly atmospheric and brooding songs, just as Edgar Allan Poe had no shortage of Goth poems. The band captures the essence of Gothic like no other and their back catalogue continues to grow with an entirely new album to be launched this year. In no particular order, here are my picks for the band's top Gothic songs and their associated Cure videos.

1. A Forest - Seventeen Seconds - "Running to What's Nothing . . .."




2. The Hanging Garden - Pornography - "Creatures kissing in the rain . . .."




3. The Figurehead - Pornography - "And sleeping less every night . . .."



4. Fear of Ghosts - Disintegration (Deluxe) - "The further I get from the things that I care about, the less I care about how much further away I get . . .."



5. Fascination Street - Disintegration - "To kick the last nail in . . .."



6. Charlotte Sometimes - Faith (Deluxe) - "All the face, all the voices blur . . .."



7. The Wailing Wall - The Top - "And I circle, like a vulture . . .."



8. Prayers for Rain - Disintegration - "I deteriorate, live in dirt . . .."



9. Edge of the Deep Green Sea - Wish - "Watched the sun come up from the edge of the deep green sea . . .."



10. The Same Deep Water as You - Disintegration - "Kiss me goodbye . . .."
