I named my daughter after this song. Granted, Fur Elise from Beethoven and PJ Harvey's song A Perfect Day Elise are great, but The Cure's A Letter to Elise is the best.

Back in the days of mix tapes this was one of the songs you put on to scold yourself about the one you let slip away. To remind you on the long lonely drive back to school for instance.

SO much beauty, so little time. Sometimes I'm in a Cocteau Twins mood, maybe This, Or maybe L&R Earth, Sun, Moon, etc....

Good song to think about the good times before your GF left you for some dude you know and you can't get the idea of her doing that thing you thought was special during the intimate times.

I love The Cure. I like every single song only 1 or 2 exeptions but this is nothing in comparison to all the great songs they have THE CURE is in my top 5 bands of all time.

Has anyone else ever liked a song so much they wanted to wrench it out of the distant past and scorch it into the heavens so everyone knows its preciousness ?

Leave it to Robert Smith to make your heart break in the best of ways.

Always moved time and again by The Cure. Usually lifts my mood. I've heard a few say their music makes them sad, and while I understand the music is melancholy, it's the opposite for me. Lovely!
