Just Like Heaven

Although the track was the Cure’s 11th Top 40 hit in their native United Kingdom, it was the alt-rock band’s first in the United States, reaching just Number 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The whimsical lyrics and lilting melody were inspired by a seaside trip singer Robert Smith took with his then-future wife, recollecting a dreamy romantic rendezvous. Smith once admitted to Rolling Stone that “when I find someone I like, I try to hold on to them” — a truism underscored by the fact he’s been with the sweetheart he’s singing about since he was 15.
