What’s so cool is that even acoustically, the Cure is the genesis of alternative. No computers, no sound machines, pure alternative genius. Each day I appreciate this band more, and I listened to the Cure from day one.
the same with me. listened since days one ..they seem not to fade away but to gain
The Cure helped ma a lot...! Thanks Robert
we`ll get you a medal
@mitchell miller uhh...Cure early 80s... Smashing Pumpkins late 80s to early 90s..But your assessment is spot on otherwise.. 2 great bands.. Love them both
Back in the day, when the Cure and the Smashing Pumpkins ruled the world!
This is simply one of the greatest bands of any genre in the history of popular music.
The Cure is the original Radiohead
There is something special...Perhaps the Cure.
A close second to joy division
@Steph I,won't lol
I love everything. Sometimes I imagine the new sounds of their next album they will explore, the new atmosphere they will offer.To me, each time everything comes logically because it is already germinating inside the melodies. The only thing they have to do is to withdraw one of the numerous creative ideas and to emphasise it in order to see in which direction after they can go and how far with it.Their universe is vast. Elevation, spirituality. It is in the air now. They can explore mystery, reach mysticism. In the age of Aquarius. It can be electric, aerial, galactic, a music in a flow of energy. In the four or five dimension. Cristalline bodies. They can play with the invisible we all feel. The white light versus the darkness of space. La matière noire aussi. Belle thématique: les notions quantiques à visiter d’une façon artistique.The energies and the frequencies, vibrations from the elementals. Air, earth, water, fire. Colors and black or white. Clear voices and whispered lyrics. Contrasts and harmonies. Des superpositions d’échos lointains et/ ou rapprochés. Par exemple. Well. I am waiting something around these ideas. 😁😘😘😘🌹
Illuminating, your words!
The production is superb, and Robert's voice, oh my, just magic, it doesn't age.Thank you, thank you, so nice to visit the awesome 80's again.
Yes ! Some sorcery !?
Was thinking the production is great, too! The drums and bass are totally tight and everything else falls into place off them. Everything sitting right where it should. I was never into them at the time, but gaining appreciation now.
keep some of the eighties right up high into future again
@David Macleod Perry and 2 drummers in the cure? (:
@dazlamb haha... well fellow darren lamb and cure fan I'm not actually named Darren Lamb.. but close. I am indeed a Darren (a sure sign of being born in the UK in the 70s) but the Lamb part is only the first half of my surname. Take care.
Boy, this is a masterpiece!!! This band is so versatile!
God I friggin' love The Cure, and the acoustic versions here are outstanding!!
put masterpiece on that my friend
Ça sonne super bien, comme ça, en acoustique, et puis c'est super bien filmé....j'adore! Thanks for sharing!
@Chrisgigi 67 ru-clip.com/video/6SPHtRv0yhQ/video.html
@Vincent Comelli ru-clip.com/video/6SPHtRv0yhQ/video.html
Oui, oui! C'est bonne!
@Greg Kosinski google traduction l'anglais!!!
Speak English, frenchy!
They are amazing. I remember how some of my friends looked at me when they first came out and I said this is one of the best bands ever
I cannot believe his voice hasn't changed after all these years, when absolutely everything else has 😳 They're all just as amazing as when I first heard them, and they strummed that chord on my heart that said 'Yes!'. Thank you for this set, love it!
Bem , eles têm mais de 40. Vale.
This is 20 years old.
Thanks for sharing! The Cure is one of my favorite bands and they sound amazing playing acoustic guitars. 🎸👍
This always takes me back...so hauntingly beautiful, the lyrics puncture my soul, and then envelop me like a warm hug. And then there is a playful side that is bouncy and catchy and happy. They swing like a pendulum. LOVE love the Cure. Thanks for sharing!
@Марина Матвеева 🤣
long live Rock'n'Roll 2021 =🎸🎸=ru-clip.com/video/o62-GjtnMq8/video.html
@Sophie W You're delusional...
And thursday..youre in love 💘 !
Hearing them play acoustic proves that at the heart of The Cure's magic lies truly great songs.
Yes...No autotune...no mumbling of nonsense lyrics...no sampling...ripping off other artists... Original..
@Jay F I miss the horns on Close To You. I don't know which release had the horns, though.
And you are just discovering this? I mean, most of this are fully aware but thank you for your input.
Beautiful. But I miss the strings on Lullaby
Los verdaderos músicos, se escuchan mejor en acústico. Gracias The Cure!
DIFIERO creo que los buenos grupos en vivo suenan mejor que en estudio, ojo en vivo no acústico cualquier tema de Metallica en vivo es ufff peor en acústico mmmmmmmm que te digo
Please, come to rockinRio 2022
Increíble, lo que es capaz de transmitir, una música entrañable y dulce a la vez y con ritmo leve que no decae. Grande The Cure. La última canción magistral.
SIMPLEMENTE ATEMPORAL su música! Muy vigente por cierto.
Thank you so much for this. The sound is beautiful! What a priceless upload…I’m with most of the others here: o, nostalgia! ❤️
Stripped of all the reverb and delay Robert's voice remains utterly note perfect. Incredible
A melhor banda de todos os tempo!
Wow, why didn't I appreciate them back in the day. Fab musicians 😍
No other band sounds like the cure, special!
Muito bom! 💥🎶 80's rules!!!
Wow! A forest es una canción que utiliza mucho los sintetizadores, al pasarla en versión acústica no pierde nada! genios!!
SIMPLEMENTE FANTÁSTICO!! LAS MEJORES BANDAS DEL MUNDO!!
totalmente de acuerdo
A forest is soooo good! Over 40 years and this is the most amazing version I've ever heard 💯👊🙏
That must be from before 2004, Perry Bamonte on guitar...
I ticked off one of my bucket-list items when I saw these guys live. Each one of them just as brilliant as the other! One of my "greatest bands of all time" the other two being "The Clash" and "Pink Floyd". Ok... perhaps not only those three, there are also a few more.😁😁😁 🎸🎸🎸🎸
Awesome! 20 years on, still incredible!
Tremendous. I would never have thought of "A Forest" as an acoustic song.
My thoughts also
Honestly my favorite version now. When he started playing the arpeggios at 0:26 I knew it would not only be serviceable but legendary.
I have so much respect for The Cure! One of my only childhood bands that actually still sound as good on and off record, if not better! than ever before!!!! ❤️
Yes, they do sound better in a way because they've had a few decades of practice.
Love this 💕 one of the greatest bands of all time
They sound amazing! Just brilliant.
Brilliant! Pure brilliance! They transcend all music trends.
A Forest is one of my favorite songs by anyone, and I've been listening to pop music (and many other types) for 60 years. I like the electronic versions of it even more, especially the extended dance mix. Several years ago I visited the UK and only then discovered the song, having drifted away from The Cure for some time. I'll always fondly remember listening to it on headphones late at night in Edinburgh. Thanks for this great upload.
Love "A Forest" but this version didnt do it for me. The original version when they, I guess, had a slightly punk vibe is my favorite.
Edinburgh is a beautiful city. My favourite Scottish city for sure. I love all things medieval and Edinburgh ticks all my boxes.
@tasos diaforetico You're delusional...
Yes it's epic, it hot me into a different way of life and though, and flamenco guitar
Totally agree, feel the same, i listen ti every version i find.
All I know is . I love this After all these years, still one of the most phenomenal bands I've ever heardNot enough words to truly do them justicethe cure is my cure
Thank for posting, it’s amazing! Some of their best performances ever!
Je viens de faire un bond dans mon adolescence. Merci ! Cette vidéo est magique et c'est toujours aussi bon de les écouter.
Pareil, souvenirs... J'ai appris la basse en formant un groupe avec des potes et on les reprenait genre tribute ou cover! Mais je les ai un peu lâchés après desintegration... En ne ratant jamais leurs concerts près de chez moi!
Always so good..
oui j'accord. le cure est le best band.
One of the best acoustic bands of all time, now I can rest easy !!!
Great performance. Robert is nailing the vocals. Wonderful.
He always does.
Mi juventud no hubiera sido la misma sin esta música tan maravillosa !!!! Larga vida a The Cure que ayudó a cura mis heridas !!!!
no fuiste la única !!! saludos
Without a doubt The Cure is and will be one of my favorite bands forever.Beautiful acoustic :D
They still sound so fresh, after all these years !!!
Where can i find the full set of this performance please? It's amazing. SO, so good.
They have a greatest hits in two formats - the regular versions and another of newly recorded acoustic versions. They pull off the acoustic stuff very well.
¡Qué maravilla de acústico!
Fantástico sonido !
Pure genius. Even breathing in tune.
This acoustic show is fantastic 😍 !!
Dessas, adoro Lullaby!!! The Cure... Saudades... super banda!!
I can't believe that this video doesn't have more views. It's Unplugged at it's best!
Was this the "MTV unplugged" show? I recall that The Cure played The Caterpillar during the show. It was memorable.
seriously. right there wit nirvana, Clapton, Alice in chains, so on so forth, if not better than all aforementioned.
30+ years on and Lullaby is still on my top 5 greatest acoustics songs
This is perfect. Skill, beautiful sound and magic.
Love this song, whether i'm speeding down the highway or running, it's a great song to speed to.
Fantastic! One of my top 5 bands of all time.I love them all equally.lol ;-)
The Cure was one of few bands that were able to bring quirky, unique songs into pop culture. The possibilities of renditions for the songs on this video are endless.
@Kenneth Barber very nice! Reminds me a little bit of Señor Coconut 😁
have you heard Nouvelle Vague cover of The Forest?
Totally Awesome, I have loved the cure all my life, sooo good 👍
That version of Lullaby was absolutely wicked
Awesome as accoustic. As good as the days these songs came out. Robert's voice still sounds great.
This is actually a pretty good live video, I'm happy that I've found it, thank you for uploading. :]
WoW! I'm enjoying this much more than the old stuff :D You guys have gotten REALLY GOOD! :D
0:00 - A Forest4:51 - Lovecats8:47 - Close to Me12:31 - Lullaby
Really cool! Listen this is always a good time!Congratulations from Brasil 🇧🇷
I remember the first time I heard the cure. Blown away. Love this video. Thanks for posting.
Thanks for sharing this. A Forest was the first 12" single, nay, the first vinyl I ever bought back in the day. It was glow in the dark green and I wore that record out. Still one of my top ten songs. That bassline just hooks into my brain and baby, that's all she wrote.
This ia ao f...ng awsome, thanks
I’m with you - not the first vinyl but one of my first 12” singles for sure, purchased in the Plymouth branch of Virgin Records, and also in my Top 10 all-time. The TOTP performance also ranks highly, prompted the first haircut where I told the barber exactly what I wanted!
Que hermoso, gracias 🌌🎶
This was brilliant ! Immediately made me a teenager again. Great versions of great somgs
I had no idea this material existed. Lots of 80s stuff deconstructs down to acoustic guitar. Great stuff!!
What a gem of an upload. One of the very best versions of the Forest I've come across. And super quirky, very interesting song choices. Love it!
Thanks a lot for sharing Yaniv
Magnificent ❤️. Music, Robert's voice waouw... it carries me back 30 Years earlier. The cure 4ever !!
Sem comentários, fazia música de verdade som melódico sem apelação e só reflexão!!!
"Just Like heaven" Love those guitars, I'll never forget last concert here in México City, I hope they will come very soon!!!
Timeless prep music with a soul. The Cure one of the best.
A forest versión acústica. Sencillamente perfecta.Y que gran batería Cooper.
I used to be a metalhead back in my teen ages, yet TheCure played continuously in my head, along with Slayer, Voivod, Entombed or Carcass.... kinda weird, kinda brill.... hell, I cannot put into words, what they do to my soul.... :)
I love the way Simon Gallup builds his bass lines. He is half of the music in The Cure
LUCIANO VARELA... d'accordissimo !!!
The second favorite band of my life ! Just after Pink Floyd ! I saw them in Strasbourg (France) in 2000 or 2001, I don't remember exactly ! Fantastic experience ! "Pictures of you" is a gem !
Wish 2 see them too. especially In Israel
Melhor banda dos anos 80/90 cheios de personalidade no som e no visual
They sound incredible and look great! 🧡👻🎃😌
Sensacional e épico
Best band ever! Even in acoustic!
Playing this as my High School class came in today. Much respect to the one kid who hung around at the end to ask was that the Cure? What song was that? Great music is timeless.
The Cure Is Healing
I wish my school was a little cool to have music classes or something like that
what a dreeaaaaaamm🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩🥺
Lots of love fore the cure.they were one of the first bands I got into..still listening to them to this day.
Hermoso!!!! gracias por subir este vídeo!!!
Awesome to always go back but this cleaner more subtle version of the classic songs! Awesome. Thank you for sharing
Iconic - Classic - So much to give even now so many years later, still relevant, still The Cure.
When a band perfects their craft. If there wasn't, there should have been an album made from this.
Guys, this vid rocks! The choice of tracks, the editing, the sound quality and the choice of B / W are amazing.Thanks for uploading and sharing!
@Gregor Teplý Thank you 👌
Recorded in 2001 😮
Their cover of "Love Will Tear Us Apart" is also well worth checking out.
Robert Smith is a genius, and I put him alongside the other genius, that being David Bowie, both incredibly unique, and riddled with talent.
the 2 I love the most: TC and DB...love them profoundly
David Burne deserves a spot among those legends.
@Марина Матвеева How so?
@Graxxor Anandro Vidhelssen You're delusional...
@Adam Brass Say what now? Bowie wrote and composed a lot of his own stuff, though of course he covered Jacques Brel, The Pixies and collaborated with others such as Annie Lennox and Queen.
This is just the best cure set ever, before Robert started frightening my grandma as she went to pick up her prescription at the local pharmacy 😬
My mom asked me questions about what exactly they were singing about.
huh? sounds hilarious plz explain? Did she run into him? lol
THIS IS MUSIC ...THESE ARE SONGS TO THE DEEP SOUL...NO OTHERS LIKE THEM
In spired between days . Beautifully placed into my lap this morning from Skeeta Davis to Sharon Van Etten’s version, to this magnificently played, sung, written and produced melody of work that invokes the spirit, conjures the soul and stirs the imagination x
Robert Smith’s voice never deteriorated like so many others. What’s more is that he still sounds great.
Siouxsie Sioux has a half-octane vocal range now. It's just a monotone cigarette rasp, sadly. Robert has done pretty well to maintain most of his range.
This was from 2001. 20 years ago. His voice has deteriorated like everyone's.
Una de las mejores bandas de todos los tiempos, en el selecto grupo de Dioses de la música contemporánea!!
Effin Hell... it must feel good when you realize that you're real musicians and not a bunch of hacks. These guys have been real deal performers all these decades. Making it look easy like it's just going through the motions, but still enjoying making the music. Nice work.
they are not all the same people, the lie-up has changed many times.
Love it 👍
I love the cure!!!!!!
Bellissimi i pezzi , la voce e gli arrangiamenti . Un gruppo geniale e superbo .❤️❤️❤️🎤🎼🎹🎸
Nunca me cansare de escucharlos desde 1980 son una de mis bandas favoritas con sutileza te transportan a esos momentos guardados en el corazón.
Amazing band, epic!
