The Cure – Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me

In the 80s, The Cure established themselves as a mainstay, and one of the most popular groups in alternative rock. The double LP, “Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me,” was panned by many critics, but that didn’t stop it from becoming one of the Cure’s most successful albums.

According to Robert Smith, the album almost failed to happen as there was a fire in the building where he had all the as yet unrecorded lyrics written down. He actually went into the burning building to retrieve the them so they would not be lost forever.
