Crystal Castles ft. Robert Smith (The Cure)
covering Toronto's own Platinum Blonde

1983 was the year Toronto new wave act Platinum Blonde released their debut album "Standing In The Dark". Not only did the album spawn such hits as the title track, along with "It Doesn't Really Matter", and "Sad Sad Rain", it shot the group to superstar status in their homeland of Canada for the remainder of the decade.

Fast forward to 2010, experimental electronic duo Crystal Castles, another Toronto based outfit, decided to tackle the single "Not In Love" from that very same 1983 Platinum Blonde album, hooking up with none other than Robert Smith of The Cure to take care of the vocal duties for the remix version of the track.

Kudos to Crystal Castles for recruiting the goth legend. It's perfect.

While you're at it, throw on some make-up, find a headband, and scream like a 13 year-old girl for the original.
