Why can't I be you? I'll run around in circles 'Til I run out of breath I'll eat you all up Or I'll just hug you to death. You're so wonderful Too good to be true You make me, make me, make me Make me hungry for you. Everything you do is simply delicate Everything you do is quite angelicate Why can't I be you? Why can't I be you? You turn my head when you turn around You turn the whole world upside down I'm smitten, I'm bitten, I'm hooked, I'm cooked I'm stuck like glue.

Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me is the seventh studio album by British alternative rock band The Cure, released in May 1987. The album helped put The Cure into the American mainstream, becoming their first album to reach the Billboard Top 40 (achieving Platinum certification). It was also a big international success, as was its predecessor, The Head on the Door, reaching the Top 10 in numerous countries.

Be You? (single taken from 1987’s Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me) Boys Don't Cry (stand alone single from 1979). The Cure first headlined Glastonbury in 1986. Following the success of their 1985 album The Head On The Door and its singles Close To Me and In Between Days, the following year saw The Cure’s first headline appearance at what was then known as the Glastonbury CND Festival. The Cure’s third headline Glastonbury appearance was in 1995. Following the international success of their album Wish in 1992 (their first UK Number 1 LP), the rest of the 90s were a bit of a grey period for The Cure. Drummer Boris Williams and guitarist Porl Thompson had both left, while bassist Simon Gallup went on sabbatical, so sessions for the next album were protracted.

Taken from the 1987 double album Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me, ‘Why Can’t I Be You?’ is, like ‘Let’s Go To Bed’, a deliberate attempt to make a disposable pop single, and the band had fun with the accompanying video. We wanted to be Five Star in this video and this is what we thought that Five Star looked like, ’cos none of us are very up with the latest. Robert said.

Why Can’t I Be You? 1987.
