iPod Shuffle - A Forest

iPod Shuffle - A Forest
A Forest - "The Cure" - Play this track here.

¿Whats this iPod Shuffle set all about? Read about it here

This is vague story about a man looking for a girl in a forest. He hears her calling for him, and as he chases her, he suddenly stops and realizes that he is lost and that the girl is not there. Its easy to feel like that in a dense area of woodland, easy to be disorientated, lose yourself.

Often its regarded as 'The Cure's sound and is one of the most memorable tracks. It was the bands first 12" single release from 1980. I must admit not to be an ardent Cure fan, but have some definite favourites.

At the Werchter Festival in Belgium, July 5, 1981 according to bootleg legend, a notorious 'Robert Palmer' version of the track was performed. Everything was late at the festival, and the crowd was mostly there to see artists that were at the time bigger than The Cure, like Dire Straits and Robert Palmer, of whom the latter happened to be the next on stage after The Cure.

After twelve songs, Palmer's roadies said that if The Cure didn't stop playing soon, they would pull the plug. They reached a compromise that they would play one song before they left, opting for "A Forest", which they decided to play a lot longer than what was normal at the time (almost ten minutes).

Robert Smith added some lyrics improvised on the spot (including the words: "Such a long end" repeated several times). When the band finally finished, bass player Simon Gallup yelled into the microphone: "F**k Robert Palmer, and f**k rock 'n' roll!". It is not possible on the bootleg to hear Robert Palmer's roadies throwing The Cure's gear off the back of the stage afterwards.

------------------------

Deciduous plants, including trees, shrubs and herbaceous perennials, are those that 'decide' to lose all of their leaves for part of the year. This process is called abscission. In some cases leaf loss coincides with winter - namely in temperate or polar climates. While in other areas of the world, including tropical, subtropical and arid regions of the world, plants lose their leaves during the dry season or during other seasons depending on variations in rainfall.
