- The Cure's "Just Like Heaven" b/w Dinosaur Jr.'s "Just Like Heaven"
"Just Like Heaven" was the third single released from the Cure's 1987 album Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me, while Smith's memories of the trip formed the basis for the song's accompanying music video. The song became The Cure's first American hit and in 1988 reached number 40 on the Billboard charts.
In 1989, Dinosaur Jr speared the weepy original with a wah-wah pedal and a warm blanket of Big Muff fuzz. J Mascis told Musician magazine, "We recorded it for a compilation album, but when we finished it we liked it so much we didn't want to give it to them." Reportedly, it's Robert Smith's favorite version as well: "Mascis sent me a cassette, and it was so passionate. It was fantastic. I've never had such a visceral reaction to a cover version before or since." Like the ending? Supposedly Mascis didn't know how to play the end of the song, so he just stops. (From Magnet Magazine).
