‘Pictures Of You’ by THE CURE – 30 Years Ago

Top singles from the past…

18 April 2020


Pictures Of You is an epic standout single by goth
icons THE CURE from their 1989 album Disintegration.

It was released 30 years ago, on 19 March 1990, 30 years
ago as the 4th single of that mega successful LP, their eight
longplayer. The inspiration for this classic came when a fire
broke loose in Robert Smith‘s home. After that day, Smith
was going through the remains and came across his wallet
which had pictures of his wife, Mary.

The cover of the single is one of the pictures.

Here’s the original clip…
