♪♫ Robert Smith is not in love

For all the sad goth kids of the '80s missing those beautiful, maudlin Cure songs, a new song released online Wednesday should have them searching for their black eyeliner again. The distinctive voice of Robert Smith, the Cure's frontman, appears over the electronic-synth single "Not In Love" by the band Crystal Castles. It's an odd pairing that completely works.

As one of the comments on YouTube states, "Jaw drops. It's amazing to hear 1980's meeting 2000's like this."

At some point, not changing your look over 30 years just turns sad. He's way too old for that hair and eyeliner; it just looks silly.
