My impression is that he is gay. Songs like This Charming Man and The Boy with the Thorn in His Side seem to me pretty clear references to homosexual affairs/relationships. Dear God, Please Help Me is an even more overt reference. One can say he is "in character" in those songs, but I think the pattern in the lyrics is pretty revealing.

Sorry, a user on songmeanings says you are wrong.

This song is NOT about sex. Morrissey is too creative and too brilliant a musician to make it that simple and blatant. He toys with the listener. He uses metaphors. He knows sex is the most fascinating subject to most humans, so he uses possible sexual references to peak our interest. This song is about Rome and him experiencing/feeling free there. The mention of the spreading of the legs is no different than the spreading of the pages of a book; a person opens a literary beauty and then immmerces his/her face within the pages. It's a liberating feeling when those pages contain a special beauty and hold your attention. For the creative lil' devil Morrissey, Rome did it for him.

What the...?

That is one hell of an interesting way to describe that.

I've listed a 2 second moment and a 50 second moment. They cancel each other out.

And from what the ladies tell me, you do live in a world where moments last 50 seconds.

HEYYYYYYYYYY-O!

The spacey intro to U2's 'Slug' (ok, Passengers, whatever). Also the bit where he sings 'don't want what I deserve'.

The 'love that loves to love' part of Van Morrison's 'Madam George'.

Heh, someone brought up The Unforgettable Fire. The 'walk on by, walk on through, so sad to beseige your love so heaaaad on' part of the title track.

Who knows with Morrissey, but that interpretation by the chappie on Song Meanings, that it is about Rome, is consistent with how "only stone and steel accept (his) love" when he throws his arms around Paris.

Maybe he is sincerely asexual? Unless you are Bisexual, maybe asexuality is as alien as homosexual is to a raging heterosexual like myself? You just don't understand how a sexuality works, if you are not of the sexuality?

Sorry for sidetracking.

You know that part in YYY's "Zero" where Karen sings "crying, crying, crying, oh oh," right? Well the coo she lets out after the first and third instances.

The "alright, listen" in "Ball & Biscuit."

When Annie takes "best finest surgeon" up a couple octaves.

I can't believe neither you nor LM has mentioned the transition from the bridge to the chorus in New Year yet.
