"Pictures of You" is the fourth and final single from the British rock band The Cure's 1989 album Disintegration.
According to interviews, the inspiration of the song came when a fire broke loose in Robert Smith's home. After that day, Smith was going through the remains and came across his wallet which had pictures of his wife, Mary. The cover of the single is one of the pictures. The same picture was used as the cover of the "Charlotte Sometimes" single, but that version was heavily warped and distorted.
In 2004, the song was voted 278th on Rolling Stone's "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time" list. It is also widely considered by many Cure fans to be the band's most beautiful song.
