‘Wish’ released in April 1992 was The Cure’s 9th studio album and reached Number 1 in the UK Album Chart on its release. It also reached Number 2 in the USA, where it was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Alternative Music Album category.

The first single to be released from the album, “High” was released in March 1992 and reached #8 in the UK Singles chart, but the  album is probably best known for the 2nd single, “Friday I’m In Love” which reached #6 in May 1992.
