It says on Wikipedia:
During the writing process, Robert Smith became convinced that he had inadvertently stolen the chord progression from somewhere, and this led him to a state of paranoia where he called everyone he could think of and played the song for them, asking if they heard the song before. None of them had, and Robert realized that the melody was indeed his.
I wonder what made him paranoid?...
The Video for 'Friday I'm in Love' won MTV's European Viewer's Choice for Best Music Video in the same year it was released. You can watch the video and listen to the song here
I'm not crazy about The Cure, but I do like this song. My favourite is 'Close To Me'.
For some reason when I was younger, I remember the video for this scared me, it was always on MTV too. Am I being silly?
Do you like The Cure and can you think of any other songs with 'Friday in the title?
Have a lovely weekend!
