Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which video shows The Cure standing on a cliff with the ocean below?

Answer: Just Like Heaven

Also in this video is a brief appearance by Robert Smith's wife, Mary.
2. In this one the band is also on the edge of a cliff, but this time they are stuck inside a wardrobe.

Answer: Close to Me

Robert Smith reportedly said that this song made him feel like he was in a wardrobe closet at the edge of a cliff, trying to burst out of it without falling off of it. The director, Tim Pope, took him quite literally.
3. Here we see the band in a cave with Robert Smith staring quite intently at his hand.

Answer: Lovesong

"Lovesong" was written as a wedding present to Robert Smith's wife, Mary.
4. In this one, a young school girl is wandering around in a large church completely unaware that The Cure is watching her.

Answer: Charlotte Sometimes

This is a very interesting and "Gothic" type video, and according the the behind-the-scenes footage I've seen, The Cure had a lot of fun filming it.
5. Which Cure video takes place in a "crooked" room surrounded by stuffed members of the feline family?

Answer: The Lovecats

Originally, there were supposed to be real cats as well as the stuffed cats, but apparently the real cats were afraid of the stuffed ones. There is one scene where Robert Smith is holding a real kitten, and if you look closely, you can see it scratch him.
6. In this video, The Cure is featured as part of a freak show.

Answer: Never Enough

Also in this video is Robert Smith portraying a "fat lady" and Robert Smith and Simon Gallup portraying Siamese twins (perhaps a reference to an earlier Cure song?)
7. Here we see The Cure as young boys playing their instruments with the shadows of them as adults behind them.

Answer: Boys Don't Cry

But of course there are a few moments thrown in of Robert dancing and waving his hands around.
8. Which one shows a lot of "creepy crawlies" and the band playing in a very messy room?

Answer: Wrong Number

Tim Pope finally returned to direct this video, after what in my opinion was too long of an absence.

Answer: The Caterpillar

Robert Smith is heavily made up with his trademark smeared lipstick and wild hair.

In the end, he actually does get eaten by a giant spider!
11. In this video we see The Cure with day-glo faces and articles of clothing floating around behind them.

Answer: Inbetween Days

At the beginning of "Close to Me", there is a pair of orange socks lying on the ground. A reference to the previously filmed video, perhaps?
12. Here, Robert and Lawrence are running around playing with a beach ball, knocking over Christmas trees, and smashing blue eggs.

Answer: Let's Go to Bed

Christmas is a theme that comes up often in Robert Smith's lyrics.

This was one of The Cure's first videos, and was done in very typical 80's style.

Supposedly, Robert and Lawrence changed costumes for each scene.

"Primary" was the first video in which The Cure wore makeup.

Lawrence Tolhurst plays the trumpet in this one and the other band members are shown with very short legs....
