The Cure - Just Like Heaven
Back in the 80s while growing up my circle of friends were metal heads. Nothing wrong with that, we jammed to some cool stuff back then and saw some awesome bands in concert like Iron Maiden and Metallica. But this circle of friends were pretty closed minded about anything not metal or hard rock. I caught so much shit for listening to Ramones and Misfits albums.
I still remember these so-called friends taking the lyrics of the Ramones “I Wanna Live” and changing them from “Well, I wanna live,I want to live my life” to “My name is Tim, I like to play with my foreskin.” Yes, they would sing this when we were on camping/fishing trips. Boys will be boys? I guess. I didn’t care really, it was a laugh and I already knew my musical taste was better than theirs.
But when it came to the Cure I kept them to myself. No one I knew back then liked them. No one I knew would have understood their appeal to me either. So I watched their videos on MTV and enjoyed the songs by myself.
How could I explain to a bunch of Neanderthals that the catchy melodies, the twinkling electric guitars, the soft acoustic guitar, the keyboards, the drum beat and bass that carried the song along all just meshed perfectly. They would never understand that music like that made me dream, made me feel things I hadn’t felt before while listening to music. “Just Like Heaven” was actual heaven to my ears. My friends wouldn’t have understood any of this.
And the lyrics? Call me a hopeless romantic but I always wanted to find a partner that fit the song. I wanted a girl that was just like heaven to me. Someone to throw their arms around my neck and I would run away with them. It never happened. Just like a dream I guess. Well, I still dream and I still love the Cure. Maybe that girl is still out there for me? Yeah, I know, I doubt it, but you never know...
And my metal head friends from then? Still friends, a bit more mellow, but they still don’t have anywhere near as cool music tastes as I do.
