Got the Sunday blues? We've got the cure. Nathaniel sends his own love-letter to the weekend, performing "Friday I'm In Love," from The Cure's 1992 Platinum album, Wish, on this Candy Apple Red Fender Custom Shop Electric XII, master built by Carlos Lopez.
During the writing process, Robert Smith became convinced that he had inadvertently stolen the chord progression from somewhere, and this led him to a state of paranoia where he called everyone he could think of and played the song for them, asking if they had heard it before. None of them had, and Smith realised that the melody was indeed his. "It's always been paradoxical that it's pushed down people's throats that we're a goth band," Smith observed. "Because, to the general public, we're not. To taxi drivers, I'm the bloke that sings 'Friday I'm in Love'. I'm not the bloke who sings 'Shake Dog Shake' or 'One Hundred Years'."
The song was written to be a slower number than its upbeat final rendition. While the track was recorded in D major, the commercially released version sounds a quarter-tone higher (halfway between D and D-sharp) due to Smith forgetting to disengage the vari-speed function on the multi-track recorder after toying with it before the actual recording process took place. When played live, the song is played in its original intended key as opposed to the speed discrepancy heard on the record. The track was produced by David M. Allen and the Cure.
