Guitar and bass by grubextrapolate
Probably the one song we were missing the most, “Pictures of You” is a true masterpiece and considered by many to be the Cure’s best song. This is the Cure at their best: a gorgeous, shimmering two-chord cascade of synthesizer slabs, interweaving guitar and bass lines, passionate singing and romantic lyrics from Robert Smith. It’s a hugely emotional epic, and one of the centerpieces of the Disintegration album. On paper, the words might seem like slightly overwrought love clichés (such as the climatic line ”there is nothing in the world that I ever wanted more, Than to feel you deep in my heart”), but Smith delivers them with an unquestionable sincerity that gives the song it’s emotional strength. Rock-Band wise, guitar players will love it as it’s filled with brilliant varied guitar lines. Bass is melodic and drums play a fairly static disco beat with some variations. As for vocals, well, you can’t go wrong with that one.
