"Cut Here" is a song by English rock band The Cure, released as a single in October 2001 from their best-of compilation Greatest Hits released the same year.[1]

Content[edit]

Cure frontman Robert Smith wrote the song in memory of his friend Billy Mackenzie, the lead singer of the new wave band Associates, who committed suicide in 1997.[2]

The song's title is an anagram of "The Cure".

Regarding its musical style, AllMusic wrote that the song "rises with early sounds of Madchester".[3]

Release[edit]

The track was released as a single from the band's 2001 Greatest Hits compilation, reaching number 54 on the UK Singles Chart.[4] It is the band's last release for record label Fiction.

The song was re-recorded later in 2001 for the band's Acoustic Hits release, which contains eighteen re-recordings of previous songs by the band using acoustic guitars and was only released as a limited edition bonus disc to said greatest hits album.
