Often known for their dark and gloomy gothic soundscapes, 'Why can't I be you' is an example of how The Cure could also write catchy and upbeat songs. The music bounces around in a lively and danceable fashion. Meanwhile Robert Smith has a lot of fun playing around with his voice.

The b-side 'A Japanese dream' is an often forgotten gem that, at the time, ensured both sides of the record had something amazing to listen to. There is that quirky distinctively Cure sound that mixes dark atmospheric soundscapes with a driving energy that rocks along with great power.

This single really was a testament to the depths of quality music The Cure were producing. Showing off their ability to make great pop tunes, and also showing that despite releasing a double album that year, they still had great songs left over.
