Song Stories #3 – A Forest by The Cure

I have to admit, I’m a bit hesitant to post this because I suspect most of the people who come here to listen to my tunes won’t like it.

I recorded this as a challenge to myself to try something out of my comfort zone. This is a song I’ve always loved but never learned how to play, until now.

I remember when I first heard this song in High School – a friend of mine was listening to it on their Walkman (remember those??) and let me listen. My first response was “WHAT the F#$@ is this??”

I immediately (I think it was the same day…) went out and bought The Cure’s Standing on a Beach and listened to it constantly… After that, I moved on to The Head on the Door and eventually worked my way to Disintigration – which is such an amazing album.

Anyway, here’s my take on The Cure’s A Forest – I hope you like it, but if you don’t – I understand….
