Behind the song: ''Lullaby'' by The Cure
''The Cure is the ultimate band for a filmmaker to work with because old Smith really understands the camera. His songs are so cinematic. I mean on one level there’s this stupidity and humour, right, but beneath that there are all Smith's psychological obsessions and claustrophobia.'' - Tim Pope (video director)
''Lullaby'' was inspired by the disturbing songs my father would sing me when I could not sleep as a child: he would always make them up. There was always a horrible ending. They would be something like ‘Sleep now, pretty baby – or you won’t wake up at all’.'' - Robert Smith
