Pictures of you - The Cure

'Pictures of you' was a track on the Cure's 1989 album 'Disintegration'. Clocking in at 7'24 minutes, the track was remixed and edited for the single release in 1990, lasting just 4'48 minutes.

According to interviews, the inspiration of the song came when a fire broke loose in Robert Smith's home. After that day, Robert was going through the remains and came across his wallet which had pictures of his wife, Mary. The cover of the single is one of the pictures. The single was released in two versions. This one is pressed on green vinyl.

My collection: 7" single no. 1209
Found: Free Record Shop, Den Haag, April 14, 1990
Cost: 6,5 guilders
Tracks: 'Pictures of you (remix)' / 'Last dance (live)'
