Don't fall asleep at this classic Cure 'Halloween' video



As the poster band for goth rock in the '80s, so many Cure song/videos could be promoted as Halloween homages. But what about Lullabye? At least we can all agree the video is creepy.

Lullabye was the third single released in the U.S. off the 1989 album Disintegration. Their previous single, Love Song, was the Cure's most successful single in the U.S. peaking at No. 2. While a Top 10 hit in most of Europe, Lullaby quietly peaked at No. 74 in the last month of the decade.

While the song has been rumored to be about depression or drug abuse, the video for Lullaby puts Robert Smith and his smudged on lipstick in the middle of a spider horror dilemma as Smith and the band are gradually covered by spider webs. But webs and creepy eight-legged crawlers are only the beginning of Smith's nightmare as extra hands appear before being devoured as the main course by a giant spider.

While the Cure is still considered together, there was no official action in 2017 and it's been almost a decade since their last new material.
