I do this every deployment: I get to this point where I don't even intentionally do it, but I realize I have started listening to The Cure. (I did it last July too.)  It's just not such a good plan when you're trying to stay upbeat. But "Disintegration is the best album ever" and it's hard to avoid music you like.

The thing is that The Cure has so many deployment-applicable lyrics:

I've been looking so long at these pictures of you
That I almost believe that they're real
I've been living so long with my pictures of you
That I almost believe that the pictures are
All I can feel

However far away
I will always love you

Daylight licked me into shape
I must have been asleep for days
And moving lips to breathe her name
I opened up my eyes
And found myself alone

For the telephone to ring
And I'm wondering
Where she's been
And I'm crying for yesterday
And the tap drips
Drip drip drip drip drip drip drip...
It's always the same...

AWTM said I need to listen to The String Beans instead, something cheery.  I'd better go find some Elvis or Weezer instead.

1 The Cure is one of my faves as well and, I didn't realize it before, but I seem to plug them in a great deal when my husband is gone too.  How weird! 

Maybe I'll just download the whole album from iTunes and REALLY have a good, rainy day??

2 Oh, see, I have a tendency to listen to crap like the Top Gun Soundtrack during deployments.  And I have to steer clear of Motown and Sarah Mclachlan at all costs - it's a Pavlovian thing for me.  I'll just stop there...

My husband was the same way during his last deployment.  He was listening to The Cure all the time.  Pictures of You is now one of "our songs". 

I definitely get it.

4 I'm with you on the Cure...they are all about deployment.  My personal favorite is Lovesong.  Or maybe Just Like Heaven.  It is hard to decide.
