YMMV / Siouxsie and the Banshees

  • Awesome Music
  • Covered Up: Their cover of "Dear Prudence" reached #3 in the UK. The original was not released as a single.
  • Magnum Opus Dissonance: According to the band, theirs is Peepshow. Before that, it was A Kiss in the Dreamhouse. Fans may lean more toward Juju, Tinderbox or Kaleidoscope, with Hyæna receiving some mention as well.
  • Tear Jerker: There's something extremely powerful and sad about Siouxsie's vocal performance in the Nocturne version of "Painted Bird". "Into The Light" is similar.
    • The mournful "Rhapsody".
    • The Creatures song "Say", which is about Billy Mac Kenzie's suicide.
    • "Little Sister" is quite haunting and sad including the lyric "Little sister break the rules / Break me in two".
    • "Forever" is arguably their saddest song. The music is twirling, elegant and soft, and Siouxsie's melancholic vocals make it all the more saddening: "We, we, couldnt stand together / No, never forever".
    • "Love Out Me", especially since it's the last song on their last album.
