The Cure, and English rock band formed Crawley, West Sussex in 1976..Their debut album “Three Imaginary Boys” was released in 1979..
That album had placed them as part of post-punk and New Wave movements in the pioneers of punk rock revolution in the UK..
Their current remaining members are the one and only constant member frontman Robert Smith (guitars), Porl Thompson (guitars, keyboards), Simon Gallup (bass, keyboards), and Jason Cooper (drums, percussion)..
Yes! The rock band is still around rocking the music scene..
The Cure has been tagged somewhat one of the pioneers in gothic rock and even alternative rock, before the latter broken into mainstream..
“Lullaby”, one of the most famous songs from their goth-influenced album “Disintegration” (1989), sounds quite dark and gloomy yet the tune is quite mellow..
From the original music video, it can be seen that the theme is so dark and all, and you can also see the gothic make-up on the band members, looking like Joker ala Heath Ledger..
Although both album and acoustic versions sounds almost alike, personally, I find the acoustic version of “Lullaby” quite addictive and actually nicer than the original album version..
Here’s The Cure‘s Lullaby lyrics and music video of both original MTV and acoustic version..

The Cure – Lullaby
On candystripe legs spiderman comes
Softly through the shadow of the evening sun
Stealing past the windows of the blissfully dead
Looking for the victim shivering in bed
Searching out fear in the gathering gloom and
Suddenly! a movement in the corner of the
Room! and there is nothing i can do when i
Realise with freight that the spiderman is having
Me for dinner tonight
Quietly he laughs and shaking his head creeps
Closer now closer to the foot of the bed and
Softer than shadow and quicker than flies his
Arms are all around me and his tongue in my
Eyes “be still be calm be quiet now my precious
Boy don’t struggle like that or i will only love
You more for it’s much too late to get away or
