A Letter to Elise is the third and final single taken from the album Wish from The Cure in 1992. The b-side The Big Hand was planned as an A-Side single early in 1993 but the idea was scrapped. "The Big Hand" is one of the few B-Sides to be played live, although very rarely. It was played live at a festival in 1993 and revived at another festival in 2007.
