The B-sides for “The Top” singles were some of my favorite songs The Cure released. I remember listening to the b-side of my “Standing On A Beach” cassette over and over until it finally got eaten by my cassette deck. A couple of years ago I came across “The Top Studio Demos” on cd which apparently is sourced from a vinyl bootleg. Although it’s disappointing that “Dressing Up” wasn’t included, I was thrilled that they included “Throw Your Foot”. I can’t wait until “The Top” gets the Deluxe Edition treatment.
