Heheh. Alternating DJ's. I am a wit. Anyways, one of my favorite things to do is make Cure vs. Smiths mixes, I discovered. This one... breaking out the less popular things. The Smiths with Panic... +10 to popularity and "getting the kids going", if you will.. but then, THE CURE, with Babble! +15 to unique B-sides. The battle continues. Make up your own crappy role playing scenario. In the end, The Smiths finish with the testosterone-fueled aggro-ballad ASLEEP. And the supercool Cure A FOREST remix (+10 to rare). Who wins? WHO CARES. They're both lovely. So's Mickey. Enjoy, kind fellow. And no, there's no "Friday I'm In Love" or "How Soon Is Now?". But there's greatest hits samplers from the grey MASTERS collection that you can probably get for under $9.99 these days. No epic battles on compilations, though.

Brilliant. Pure genius. You should copy them and sell them with a pint or two of Guiness and an Ambien. Bonus points for including "Rusholme Ruffians."

At the Black Cat in Washington DC we have regular Smiths vs Cure DJ nights. Nice mix.

Hehehehe - not only a good mix but also cracks me up - testosterone-fuelled aggro ballad indeed! :) And the picture is fabulous. Many, many points for no How Soon Is Now or Friday I'm In Love - your picks from both bands are GREAT and also extra points for Paint A Vulgar Picture. I love the Rusholme - Letter - Stretch Out progression too. My vote will always be for The Smiths, but yeah, they're well-matched opponents.

I am sooooo happy you didn't put Friday I'm In Love on here, I loath that song, but LOVE the Cure...good battle!
