RSHIP: Close to Me

I will be trying to get some sort of end of the year list together during our "vacation" in parental land. Until then I give you The Cure's "Close to Me" which is featured as the closing song of the fine film Son of Rambow (which we just watched and so this tune remotely qualifies for RSHIP status). All through the movie you get to chuckle as they not-so-subtley take the piss out of 1980s techno-pop scene, but then I found myself grooving to this tune with all the little jazzy licks in it. Of course, I have a soft spot for The Cure who has been cranking out the pop hits for an Elton-John-like-long-time starting back in my college days which gives them a leg up.
