What a complete outburst of joy this song is! The Cure's 1987 single "Why Can't I Be You?" preceded the release of the double LP Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, and it's a stomper of a song, with horns aplenty, an irresistable beat and infectious melody. The often glooomy-sounding Robert Smith screams his lungs out, sounding like he means every word of this ode to a person that makes him "smitten, bitten, hooked and cooked", and I don't think it's the least bit ironic. A fantastic song!
