Friday I'm in Love

The first 30 seconds of the Cure's "Friday I'm in Love" may be the best opening bars of any song, ever. The second I hear the the synth (the "da-na-na-na-na-na-NA") and the beat comes crashing in I just get in the best mood. It's not even my favorite Cure song (that honor would go to "Picture of You") but the open is just wonderful.

I'm not allowed to embed the video, but here's a link: clicky

i like every cure song mentioned on this page. they're definitly my favorite band. as for my favorite song?.... i dunno. plainsong is really powerful to me. but i also love charlotte sometimes, disintegration, lament, and letter to elise. that baby piano in the background gets me every time...
