The Cure - "Sleep When I'm Dead" live (video)

The Cure were on Last Call with Carson Daly way back on Dec. 12 playing “The Only One”, but last Friday another song from that performance was aired, “Sleep When I’m Dead”. The fact that the Cure can still write songs this good is more than a little impressive. Both “Sleep When I’m Dead” and “The Only One” are from last year’s excellent 4:13 Dream.
