Have you only just discovered The Smiths? I used to have some very sad conversations made up entirely of Smiths lyrics!! Thats the sort of thing that seemed a good idea at 15!

"The more I ignore you the close I get", If i remember rightly. I love The Smiths and Morrissey. This Charming Man has to be one of my all time favorite songs.

 

I resect his work both in The Smiths, and as a solo artist, but I think he's been much better working solo.

EVERYONE says the Queen is Dead is the best album. Not for me. Meat is Murder everytime.....

 

And much as I LOVE the Smiths, I can bear any solo Morrisey stuff.

Oooooh, and my fave songs are - Sweet and Tender Hooligan & Miserable Lie. Well today they are anyway.

I really like some of the music and Johnny Marrs guitar playing is sublime at times but I detest Morrisey on a cellular level.

It is a fantastic album (but which Smiths isn't?), but I don't think it's my fave - probably go for Meat is Murder too. Morrissey is always in danger of disappearing up his own arse though. I thought he might grow out of his Morrissey-ness, but 20 years on he hasn't. Full marks for being consistent then!

Think BG meant to say "can't stand"... she wouldn't even merit Mozzer's solo stuff with one of her near-legendary stage invasions. Ah well, each to their own.
