I have loved the Cure, from what I can remember, since I was 12.

I loved his pancake makeup, his heavy eyeliner, his goofy hair. I swooned over his voice and lyrics, and really believed that I was more profound than everyone around me because of my attachment to the Cure’s sugary goth-pop.

I still love the Cure (though I’ve gotten over my addiction to kohl black eyeliner and floppy Reeboks with no laces), which is why I love this video so damn much. Combining two of my favorite things in life, I present to you: The LolCats covering the Cure:
