Robert James Smith, the third of Rita Mary (née Emmott) and James Alexander Smith’s four children, was born on April 21, 1959, in Blackpool. He grew up in a musical family, with his father singing and his mother playing the piano. He was reared as a Catholic but later became an atheist.

Mary Poole “The Cure’s” “Just Like Heaven Song” 

Mary Poole’s influence could be heard throughout The Cure’s most renowned song, “Just Like Heaven.” We can see her in a long white dress for roughly two minutes in the music video for the legendary 1987 song.

While the lyrics of “Just Like Heaven” make it clear that Smith was smitten with Poole, he didn’t acknowledge creating a song about her until the band released “Love Song” in 1989. The ballad, according to Smith, was a cost-effective and meaningful wedding gift to Poole.


All joking aside, the lyrics of “Love Song” have been used to express powerful emotions for many couples for the past 33 years, and Poole was the intended receiver.
