They say that imitation is the highest form of flattery, but I’m not sure some copyright law wasn’t broken while making this record. Today we have The Winter Stories by World Atlas.
On this day in 1987, The Cure released their seventh studio album, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me. Thanks to the singles “Why Can’t I Be You?,” “Catch,” and “Just Like Heaven,” it would be the band’s first album to crack the US Billboard Top 40. Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me was re-released in on CD in August 2006. The new disc featured “Hey You!” a song which had been omitted from previous CD issues, and was only available on the cassette and vinyl versions of the album. Today we have Breathe by The Cure. The song appeared on the b-side of the Catch 12″ single.
On this day in 1987, R.E.M. played two consecutive acoustic sets at McCabe’s Guitar Shop in Santa Monica, CA. “This One Goes Out” was one of four unreleased songs performed by just Michael Stipe and Peter Buck at the first show. Stipe enjoyed the recording so much, he kept a cassette copy of it and insisted that it be used as a b-side. “This One Goes Out” eventually appeared on the b-side of the “It’s The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)” 12″. Today we have the live version of This One Goes Out performed at McCabe’s Guitar Shop.
