Friday I’m in Love

Robert_Smith_of_The_Cure_live_in_Singapore_1_August_2007

This great song by the British band The Cure really puts one in a happy mood and I must say, that it doesn’t matter how old the song is or how many times you hear it, it’s always smashing.  Apparently the song was written in response to press criticism towards the group accusing them of being incapable of writing anything cheerful (if you want to know what I mean by this, have look up for their song ‘Lullaby’ for instance).  The meaning of the song is not clear, some say it is about love, some say it is about loving Friday rather than being in love with a person and some people even go a bit further in their interpretation. Whatever conclusion you reach, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it anyway. In this Learning English with songs, you can learn a couple of colour idioms and other expressions related to feelings as well as doing some phonetics.
