The Cure - A Forest

Classic Song Of The Day

Reuben Raj

A Forest by The Cure was the band's debut entry into the Top 40 UK Singles charts. It was released as a single on 5 April 1980 with Another Journey by Train on the B-side.

The song was written by Robert Smith (vocals, guitar), Simon Gallup (bass), Matthieu Hartley (keyboards) and Lol Tolhurst (drums). The track was also co-produced with legendary British audio producer/engineer, Mike Hedges.

A Forest was taken from The Cure's second studio album, Seventeen Seconds that was released in 1980 by Fiction Records. The song is very representative of the band's early gothic rock phase and in some ways defined this genre of music.
