Review: The Cure – Friday I’m In Love (Pop)

This review covers the pop rock track The Cure – Friday I’m In Love.

This track was released in 1992 as a single.

The track starts with a guitar element. This is joined by a drum kit. From there, the vocals come in for a verse that also seems to function as a main chorus. This is largely repeated three times. This is capped off with an instrumental section.

In the next section, the vocals largely repeat the verse chorus hybrid. The vocals then go into a verse. After this, the vocals then repeat the chorus twice. After that, the vocals hit an odd note. This is joined by an odd guitar note with a wobble. Otherwise, it is largely an instrumental section. After that, the track just ends.

My first reaction when I heard this track was, “Well, that just… happened.” I honestly didn’t know how to really react to this one.

The track does try to be happy and upbeat, but the problem is that the lyrics are so skimpy, there is very little meaning. I would have liked to have heard more than one verse in the track to really round things out. Unfortunately, there just isn’t that much going on in this track.

The odd vocal note as well as the odd guitar note part way through the track is, well, odd. I don’t know what it’s supposed to add, but it makes the track pretty weird.

Overall, I can appreciate the attempt to make the days of the week seem like a happy and bright thing. Unfortunately, the track is excessively simple to really carry much meaning. The odd notes part way through the track make listening to this one even stranger. While a passable track, there is far better out there.
