The excellent compilation from one of the most important bands of all time, "Staring at the Sea: the Singles" by the Cure was issued in just as the band gained worldwide recognition with their album "the Head on the Door" Robert Smith formed his band in so the quoted best of served as a sort of assessment of these ten years. This collection of clips which spans the end of the seventies and the first half of the eighties also served as a reminder about the versatile singer songwriter Robert Smith was and still is in his ability to write well-crafted songs whose influence and style came from different musical horizons.
The video is a perfect adequate companion to the record and the man responsible of their most famous videos, Tim Pope is absent from nearly half of them his first collaboration with the band arrived with the disco-pop single "Let's Go To Bed" , roughly the first videos until "the Hanging Graden".
These first videos are essentially made of the band playing their hits with their instruments. But even with this trivial method, the scenery helps to capture the feeling of the song, even of the album the song is extracted of. Thus, the band plays "Play for Today" in a white scenery and it is the color which characterizes "Seventeen Seconds" , an album dominated by melancholy. But during this period, the band also tried new tricks in the conception of these videos like the alternate editing of "a Forest" or the grim story in the church of "Charlotte Sometimes".
With the arrival of Tim Pope, things got clear. Actually, Pope managed to shelve the supposedly blue image the Cure conveyed with their sinister trilogy: "Seventeen Seconds, "Faith", "Pornography" Besides, Smith once declared: "we recorded "Let's Go to Bed" to break this image".
The clip of the song as well as others like "the Love Cats" or "In Between Days" brim with vitality, joy of living and preposterous visual ideas like playing the piano with one's toes or dressed up as a cat. Smith and his musicians feel like singing, dancing and above all having fun and Tim Pope perfectly succeeded in capturing this. Band: Cure Song: Jumping OSmeone Elses Train Don't say what you mean You might spoil your face If you walk in the crowd You won't leave any trace It's always the same You're jumping someone else's train It won't take you long To learn the new smile You'll have to adapt Or you'll be out of style It's always the same You're jumping someone else's train If you pick up on it quick You can say you were there Again and again and again You're jumping someone else's train It's the latest wave That you've been craving for The old ideal Was getting such a bore Now you're back in line Going not quite quite as far But in half the time Everyone's happy They're finally all the same 'cause everyone's jumping Everyone else's train Jumping someone else's train Jumping someone else's train Jumping someone else's train.
I called you after midnight Then ran until my heart burst I passed the howling woman And stood outside your door We walked around the lake And woke up in the rain And everyone turned over Troubled in their dreams again Visiting time is over And so we walk away And both play dead then cry out loud Why we always cry this way?
I kissed you in the water And made your dry lips sing I saw you look Like a Japanese baby In an instant I remembered everything I called you after midnight Then ran until my heart burst I passed the howling woman And stood outside your door I kissed you in the water And made your dry lips sing I saw you look Like a Japanese baby In an instant I remembered everything Close to Me Lyrics.
