Last post of the previous page :

christiandeath WroteColoni love the cure and bauhaus, but i don't like the sisters of mercy. That doesn't make someone any less goth

It doesnt make you less goth but possibly hard of hearing! My stepdad comes from leeds and loves the cult but ive never had him even try the sisters. God knows why. Have you tried listening to "bury me deep" or "marianne"?

blackgate WroteColon Probably got to say Friday I'm in Love is my most played Cure song,

You know what's better than Friday I'm in Love? This song:
Figwit I'm In Love.

I don't care if Boromir's blue
Frodo's Grea... and Pippin, too
Legolas, I don't care about you,
It's Figwit, I'm in love

Merry you can fall apart
Gandalf/Balrog, break my heart
Gimli doesn't even start
It's Figwit, I'm in love

Uruk-HaaaiHaaai! Wraiths!
Samwise stands at Mordor's gates
But Figwit merely contemplates

I don't care if Gollum's black
Slinker/stinker-- off my back!
Rivendell, I am coming back,
It's Figwit, I'm in love!

Aragorn needs a shave instead
Please get Frodo out of bed
This Council meeting I won't dread
It's Figwit, I'm in love

At the council of the Ring
It's a beautiful thing
With that Elvish air, though he don't say a thing
Thrown in with the crowd
Don't he look so proud
Is he Elrond's kid
Or just a face in the crowd
What's he doing there?
He just sits and he stares
Doesn't anyone else seem to care?
But I can't get enough,
Enough of this stuff
It's Figwit,
I'm in love!

Onto the topic, Peter Murphy is coming to my town soon!
I am really happy.
Like, ecstatic.
There's an xm radio station that plays Bauhaus, Sisters of Mercy, Cure, etc. too.
On Sundays from 10 pm to 1 am.
Those times, I'm usually
a. In bed.
b. Online.
c. Watching tv.
and I don't feel like getting in the car to listen to it. It's okay, I have one or two songs by them on iTunes :b.
My personal favourite Cure song is Freakshow. It's friggin addictive. Nuff said.

Hm hom, ever tried 'One hundret years', 'Cold' or 'A forest' from The cure?
Good old 80's.^^
Even thought I think The cure was way better then old sisters/bauhaus/banshees back in days. The banshees reflected the stlye of Joy Divison, so I wonder if you can call Joy Divison 'goth' already or only 'very depressive post-punk'.

I've seen both Joy Division and Siouxsie & The Banshees credited as being the first band to have their sound described as "Goth"/"Gothic", I think there was a lot of cross-over between early Goth music and post-punk/new wave.
In some cases the only difference between the two seems to be the style of clothing worn by the bands (IMO).
To me, the first two Cure albums are definitely post-punk, I personally only consider Pornography, Disintegration and Faith to be really goth, not that I'm any kind of expert on genres.

As to the original question, as has probably been said already, there are no real rules to being goth, I think as time went on and the scene incorporated and developed more and more varied styles of music you're destined to have people who simply do not like the original wave of bands, I wouldn't expect someone that listens exclusively to EBM or Aggrotech to listen to and enjoy something like Hollow Hills (not that I'm saying there aren't people that enjoy both).

I really think that it depends. some people REALLY like to rock out, so they are into Cradle of Filth, Moonspell, and even Manson. however, i do think that is important to remember the classic artists such as the Sisters, Bauhaus, Cure and the Banshees. even if you dont like them, make sure you know them so you can be intelligent if someone asks you.
