"Strange Attraction" is a single released by the British group the Cure in 1996 on Elektra Records. The song was initially released on the album Wild Mood Swings, and was released as a single in the United States and Australia.[1]


No music video was filmed to promote the single, believed to be because Robert Smith felt the last video for a single release exclusively in the USA, "Fascination Street", was not what the band were aiming for. Because of that "Strange Attraction" remains the only The Cure single (not counting original mix of "Boys Don't Cry") without a music video.
