The Cure’s Mixed Up was my introduction to them - I think the remix of Lullaby was getting a bit of radio time. Still love those versions (not that this is one of them).
The Smashing Pumpkins - “Nothing and Everything”
(Get ready for some amazing solos)
Soundgarden - "Hands All Over"
Sonic Youth - "Cross the Breeze"
U2 - "Bad"
Metallica - "Master of Puppets"
Kiss Me, Kiss me, Kiss me gets a lot of bad rap from some quarters but the chutzpah of have 3 minute intros to several songs before the singing starts can only be admired, great stuff
As I scrolled down I was thinking Two Tribes would be a good one:
But in terms of non-extended mix songs, how about these rippers by the Church:
And for a bit of gothy gothness:
And who could forget:
Could have added a dozen or more Cure songs, plus a few New Order, plus How Soon Is Now? though I figure these (and the ones I’ve already posted are not what you’re looking for.
How about some Simple Minds instead:
Defo going to start my semi-annual Simple Minds binge tomorrow now.
Ah, How Soon Is Now, a Smiths track for people who don’t really like the Smiths!
I still really like Real Life…
easily their best song (I don’t really like the Smiths*)
*Well, I don’t adore them. They’re alright. I rate Hatful of Hollow and Rank over any of the albums proper.
Someone playlist this
I would but I’m not on spotify…
