  1. Let’s Go To Bed (Milk Mix) by The Cure

    Been a huge fan of The Cure since the mid 80s when I first heard Close To me from their The Head On The Door album. It was only obvious that they would end up remixing their songs in the future. So when Mixed Up came out in 1990 I was quite excited to check it out. Although Mixed Up was not much of a remix album. It was mostly extended versions of their hits from their recent big Disintegration album so it was obvious that Elektra Records put out this remix album Mixed Up. But there are the few remixes on the album like the two most obvious songs that definitely sound like are The Walk (Everything Mix) and In Between Days (Shiver Mix) but the rest of the cuts on Mixed Up are mostly extended versions. Still worthy to own Mixed Up if you don’t have it as longer versions of Cure songs are better than the shorter versions!!! Luckily there was this single for the main song off of Mixed Up, Never Enough which included the best remix that was not on the album Mixed Up. Let’s Go To Bed (Milk Mix) is the best of them all. Now since then countless remixes of Cure songs have been done but at the time the best remix of a Cure song was on not on the remix album! So it was a bit disappointing. Luckily Elektra Records decided to add that remix to the single to Never Enough. Let’s Go To Bed (Milk Mix) is remixed by Mark Saunders who was one of the big remixers from that era. He’s produced and mixed and remixed some of the best UK artists from that era like Depeche Mode, Erasure, Cathy Dennis, The Farm, Coldcut featuring Lisa Stansfield and Siouxsie & The Banshees.

    If you are a fan of The Cure and remixes check out some of these other great remixes of Cure Songs. Blank & Jones remixing A Forest is pretty darn cool! And The Walk (Infusion Mix) is also worth listening to or actually owning. And if you love Robert Smiths vocals and love electronic dance music then certainly you have to know about Junior Jack’s Da Hype which samples Don’t You Want My by Human League. Highly recommended!

  2. A Forest (Original Mix) by Blank & Jones featuring Robert Smith

    Well here’s a remix or shall we say remake from several years ago. It’s one of my favorite Cure tracks – A Forest updated progressive trance style. This remake still sounds good even after 5 years. Boy time flies doesn’t it? Anyway I was happy that Blank & Jones redid this track. It’s been re-recorded by Robert Smith for this release as they are not using the original version of the song by The Cure but hey it still sounds like the original doesn’t it? It’s been given the energetic makeover and really has the feel of full on energetic club track. I can see it really getting people down and grooving in the clubs!

    I’m a pretty big Cure fan and Blank & Jones are alright so it’s always good to get these great remixes every so often.

    Check out the two versions and see what I mean. The single release – photo above had several other versions but they really did not work for me as good as the original version of the remake worked. So I have the original below along with the original Cure version of the track. What do you think? Let me know your thoughts.
