Greatest Hits is a 2001 compilation album by The Cure. The band's relationship with longtime label Fiction Records came to a close, and The Cure were obliged to release one final album for the label. Robert Smith agreed to release a greatest hits album under the condition that he could choose the tracks himself.

In an effort to provide something new for the hardcore fans who owned the previously released songs, Robert arranged for the band and former member Boris Williams to re-record acoustic versions of the Greatest Hits. Only the select first pressings of Greatest Hits were bundled with the bonus disc of Acoustic Hits.


Welcome to the survivor of The Cure's best known compilation album that spans their most successful and acclaimed period, ending with the late 90s. Per my tradition, the songs will be divided into four groups of 5 songs for those who wish to remind themselves of some songs, or discover The Cure in general.

Boys Don't Cry
A Forest
Let's Go to Bed
The Walk
The Lovecats
The Caterpillar
In Between Days
Close to Me
Why Can't I Be You?
Just Like Heaven
Lullaby
Lovesong
Pictures of You
Never Enough
High
Friday I'm in Love
Mint Car
Wrong Number
Cut Here
Just Say Yes

I'll be out with limited access for the next 5 days so I may skip some rounds, but I still want to participate as long as I can!

Of course! Since some of their hits are well-known, you should have only 2-3 unfaniliar songs per group anyway
