10:15 on a Saturday night
And the tap drips under the strip light
And I'm sitting in the kitchen sink
And the tap drips

Drip drip drip...

Waiting for the telephone to ring
And I'm wondering where she's been
And I'm crying for yesterday
And the tap drips

Drip drip drip...

It's always the same

I love songs where I think I could play the instruments...
This song is SO low tech, and I LOVE it.
hmm, was it "Disarm"? Same in Feb 19'

Who would've thought a song with these lyrics would be a nice "recovery" from that Smashing Pumpkins song we just grimaced through, BUT IT IS!

Do not mix up with "The Cure : Boys Don't Cry", even though that album features many songs from this album, it is considered a different album.
The Cure's debut album, originally released in 1979. It was later released in the United States, with a slightly different song line-up, as "Boys Don't Cry".
The nearest thing to the blues that The Cure does.

Turned a  drip inside out to see
       that it's inside.

Really used to love this song.  Takes me back to walking around Mpls. in the middle of winter (Feb. 1980), freezing my "you-know-whats" off!


goth juice
Reminds me of 1015 Folsom
 
"Boys Don't Cry" what a great album from 1980. It was on heavy rotation in our dorm rooms and apartments. 
Ah yes, great stuff. Back in the days before Robert Smith became a parody of himself.
Excellent song for a rainy night. Drip drip drip drip 
This was song made in context along with Killing An Arab - sort of an Albert Camus retrospective.   Cool.

Absolutely OK that you don't connect with it... I think its brilliant but thats how I feel.
Am always perplexed why so many feel compelled to knock a song or artist.
Is it the theraputic release served by an outburst of angry criticism ... the search for like minded critics the pleasure of being angry together.
But sad to thrive on negative emotion rather than the warm glow of shared praise.

An absolute classic.  Robert Smith before he realized how cute he was.  I <3 a lot of The Cure's earlier works.  Great stuff.
If "The Forrest" comes up next, I go with cardiac death-
{#Drummer} Very big YES
YESSSSS!! {#Drummer}

This is one of/my favorite Cure song but I'd still rather have Wire.
OH HELL YEAH!
I never dreamt I would hear this song on a radio station.  Very impressive.

From one listen? This is a Cure classic - raw and untainted by the years. Full of disappointment and angst - beautifully written. Love the early stuff.
AWESOME!!!  A Cure classic - one of my favorites.  VERY nice to hear it here. Many a memory to this fine tune in the early 80's...

Cure is definitely an interesting band. Everything from sugary pop to dark stuff like this. I have a lot of respect for what they do.

Wow, this takes me back. Listening to Barry Jenkin on Radio Hauraki on a weeknight when I'm supposed to be sleeping before school the next day. Those were the days...
I thought this might be Wire for a minute . . .

Get the hell out of here!  You don't like the Cure!  And this is the Cure song that you like!  This is the only Cure song on RP I don't know by heart.
as good as I remember, and it's been awhile.

Agreed—same set today.  This was back when the Cure was a great band—after 1987, it was hit/miss, with more miss than hit.
 

Yea, I think that is an accurate assesment.{#Yes}
Great song off of a great album!{#Clap}

You!! Put down that pipe and do something useful! {#Beat} I generally like the Cure, but this is not them, this is the Cause.

Dreadful.

Uh oh!  A Cure tune for which I have some respect.  Rats!
One of my all-time favorite Cure songs.

This was my first CD ever...am I dating myself?

EARLY CURE!!!! WHEN ROBERT SEEMS LIKE A LITTLE DARK ANGEL, BUT NOT IN THE VOICE....SO THIN AND SO CLEAR (NOW AT 46 STILL IS INCREDIBLY LOUD...HOW CAN YOU DO IT ROBERT??)I USE TO LOVE THEIR MUSIC, BEST IN THE LATE 80'S, THEY SAVED MY LIFE IN A SENSE....AND THEY LIGHTED THE WAY FOR MANY MANY ARTISTS YEARS AFTER WITH THEIR EARLY THINGS.... LOVE TO THE CURE!
Well, Exciter, you are loud too... :lol: :lol: It's true The Cure were a standout in the thin 80'S.
For anyone who dislikes mid- and late-Cure, this should dispel any lingering hope that they were ever any good.
the start sounds like an igniter trying unsuccessfully to start a burner on a stovetop.
I must admit , all that I liked was the photography (album cover) This man has seen ALOT.  The photo brings to my mind an old fellow from Greece that I knew when I was a kid.  His name was Manoli (not sure of the spelling)..anyway I used to watch him walking along ever so slowly.. cane in hand..I knew that he didn't have many steps left here on earth..he'd look at me with that worn out face and smile.  I felt his warm heart shinning out at me..God rest your soul Mr. Manoli

That jagged guitar solo in this always reminds me of another band from this era called Scars...

drip ... drip ... drip ... tedious
This is off the Three Imaginary Boys album. And it is as good as I remember it. It's a materpiece. And I'm not a Cure fanatic.

Waiting and waiting. May be the best song they ever wrote!

Well, I don't agree on the Cure bashing...but I appreciate the wit.
This is the first Cure song I ever heard (in the mid-80s, live on the 'King Biscuit Flower Hour'). Love their older stuff.

Makes me want to be killing an Arab. Ok, no, not really, but hearing it, anyway. Great tune.

"And I'm sitting in the kitchen sink." :ask: Great, great song.
I loved the cure in the 80's, they were great. Make that a black sweatshirt, and the cloves were the second thing you smoked... 8-<
Never ever ever liked the Cure. My roommate had this CD in college and played "Jumping Someone Else's Train" until I was ready to maim him.
Loveloveloveloveloveit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
:clap:
Awesome. Thanks for the old Cure.
Wow, I haven't heard this song in ages. I used to be a huge Cure fan in the 80's. They got kind of stuck, though. But their early stuff was really progressive. Gosh, it makes me want to don a ripped sweatshirt and smoke a clove. Thanks for the memory, Bill.
