Friday I’m in Love – Introduction

friday-im-in-love-the-cure-lyrics-guitar-chordsThe Cure is usually associated with gloomy, melancholic rock, and as such, the vibe of Friday, I’m in Love is quite a typical for this British band’s sound. Nonetheless, the song went on to become a worldwide hit, just like the album it was part of, Wish, which remains The Cure’s most commercially successful album.

Quite alike Paul McCartney and “Yesterday”, Robert Smith (singer and guitar player for The Cure) was unsure about the chord progression/melody of “Friday I am in love” was truly his. Just like Paul did, Robert would call people he knew and would ask them if the song sounded familiar to them.

This song is peculiar to me as the tuning of the instruments in the album is a bit higher than usual, hence the D sounds almost like Eb. After some research I found out why: Robert Smith forgot to turn off the vari-speed on the tape that was used to record the song. I personally believe such “mistakes” make a song stick out and catch the listener’s attention.
