Robert Smith was the David Bowie (Ziggy-era) for young women of the 1980's.
His band The Cure cut across so many, dare I say tragically hip, elements of youth culture at that time. Moreover, their influence persists, long after the Goth fad that deified them.
They make the cut. You are a keystroke away from seeing the video of The Cure's iconic "Just Like Heaven". This band, because of Robert Smith, will still matter in 30 years and as usual, it is the timeless nature of their best music that sustains their importance.
If you are over 45, hitting the video link below is something important. For those who want to relive this moment, follow this video link and check it out.
Not only is it just like heaven, but "Every Little Thing ..." The Cure do here "... Is Magic".
