Commentaire :  En 2004, le label Fiction Records (label officiel de Cure à cette époque) sortait une compilation en 4 disques intitulée « Join the Dots » regroupant tous les singles (faces A et B) du groupe ainsi qu’un certain nombre de raretés. Déception des hardcore fans : il manquait quand même pas mal de raretés. C’est pourquoi certains d’entre eux ont décidé de concocter cette compilation ironiquement intitulée « Not join the dots » et qui, sauf erreur de ma part, comporte tout ce que la compilation officielle avait laissée de côté.

    You’re So Happy is actually an odd one out. It is indeed a curiosity, but not a Cure song. You can notice that the singing voice is not Robert’s.

    In the Bloodfowers era, the lyrics was made available on the band’s official website, however there is no known recording of the song itself, at least not by The Cure. The source of this only existing version is an unofficial 14CD set of Cure covers by various performers, called « Concise Pink Pig Atlas: The Whole Cure In The Mirror ». Whilst utilizing the lyrics of an unavailable Cure song, You’re So Happy is just imitating The Cure’s musical style.
    You can find the compilation on Discogs (You’re So Happy is the very last track).

    By the way, You’re So Happy was positioned as a Bloodflowers outtake in the lyrics section, so it is definitely not from the Easy Cure era.
