Just Like Heaven

Awful travel day due to an early Nor’Easter.

I’m too whupped to write anything coherent — but I do love Katie Melua’s acoustic cover version of The Cure’s Just Like Heaven

I haven’t checked out the rest of the disc, but this is simply a terrific version of a song that is even prettier than the original.

I was a big Cure fan back in the day — I played Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me to death; Here is the The Cure’s Just Like Heaven and Katie Melua’s album version . . .

    Man, check out the goth garb and dem ‘dos of the Cure on that video.

    Holy 80’s, Batman!

    When this video ends, there are little links to “related videos” or something like that. Click on the one “me singing heaven”.

    You have GOT to be kidding. What kinda “whupped” are you? I love this site and all your market commentary… but get real!

    There is no way this chick holds a candle to the original by The Cure. Don’t get me wrong, I am no huge Cure fan, but come on, Barry… There’s nothing like a big ol’ hair band. Just listen to this:


    De gustibus non disputandem est. You are free to enjoy whatever music you wish, but I have to voice my disagreement.

    Maybe killing defenseless fish all weekend loosened your temporal lobe? Have a great week ahead!

    Sorry, I just don’t see it. She sounds like she’s sucked the life out of this song. Too minimal.

    Sorry, I am a seriously acoustic kinda guy, but what James said.

    She is pretty.

    Alas, there is a way to get my wife to like The Cure! Nice one, Barry.
