Have you heard?

Le Cure, the ultimate [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Cure[/lastfm] tribute band, will be at this summer’s Throwback Concert!!

So to get you excited for the big show, Jack FM is making “Just Like Heaven” our Throwback Video of the Day!!

In 1987, The Cure scored their first Top 40 album in the U.S. with Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me.  It sold over a million copies and brought the British band a new legion of American fans.

The single “Just Like Heaven,” inspired by frontman [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Robert Smith[/lastfm]‘s trip to the seashore with his future wife, was The Cure’s first stateside hit, peaking at No. 40 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Smith has said he considers the song to be one of the band’s “strongest.”
