Well, Amy , i must admit i prefer Moz at the moment. I love the Smiths very much but i feel like Moz solo is closer to me at the moment. i REALLY like what he is like nowadays. His strong integrity, confidence, but still rebel...like he says( everybody knows i dont belong). Vauxhall and I is maybe his best work ,but the last two albums are just brilliant. I am sorry that i cant say the same for u2 boys. He is just comfortable with himself and he helped me a lot to accept my own "being outsider" thing. I like his honesty and admiting that he suffers depression, has been rejected, unloveable, and still making art out of it. I saw him live this year and i am also very impressed by Who put M in Manchester DVD. I mean, this man is just genius. i am so glad that u2 put him in Window in the skies video.

The b-sides to I Just Want To See The Boy Happy, remove the space between the words

http://www.save file.com/projects/1062626

Don't know if I posted this before but, here's 9 tracks of Morrissey live from Marlay Park, it was a radio broadcast, and I was there in the front row, again remove the space between the words

I listen to Morrissey more normally but at the moment I have been listening to the Smiths a bit more, you can see my listening habits here http://www.last.fm/user/Shorty11857/

Speedway
And when you slam
Down the hammer
Can you see it in your heart ?
All of the rumours
Keeping me grounded
I never said, I never said that they were
Completely unfounded

So when you slam
Down the hammer
Can you see it in your heart ?
Can you delve so low ?
And when you're standing
On my fingers
Can you see it in your heart ? ... ah ...
And when you try
To break my spirit
It won't work
Because there's nothing left to break
Anymore
All of the rumours
Keeping me grounded
I never said, I never said that they were
Completely unfounded


You won't sleep
Until the earth that wants me
Finally has me
Oh you've done it now
You won't rest
Until the hearse that becomes me
Finally takes me
Oh you've done it now
And you won't smile
Until my loving mouth
Is shut good and proper
FOREVER


All of the rumours
Keeping me grounded
I never said, I never said that they were
Completely unfounded
And all those lies
Written lies, twisted lies
Well, they weren't lies
They weren't lies
They weren't lies


I never said
I never said
I could have mentioned your name
I could have dragged you in
Guilt by implication
By association
I've always been true to you
In my own strange way
I've always been true to you
In my own sick way
I'll always stay true to you

I am not sure i completely understand the lyrics (as usual with Moz) but i feel somehow very much related to this song. Anyone knows better?

(without reading the other replies)

I don't know quite how to tell you this but I read that the BBC in the UK is seriously considering sending Morrissey into the ultimate cheese-fest - namely, to represent Britain in this year's Eurovision.....!!!

An excellent idea if you ask me...He's a big fan,well at least from the Golden years of Eurovision (60's and 70's)
It would be funny to see Mozzer sitting next to the new Lordi, Dana International, Ruslana and all the other Euro trash "artists"

UK 12 points!!

Thanks for the links girlhappy

And as for speedway, I'm not really sure, the opening lines and that sound (chainsaw? speeding car?) not quite sure what it is always reminded me of an actual race car driver on a Speedway, but once the song gets started, I get the feeling it might be about all the controversy that was linked with Morrissey in the 90s.

The lines
"All of the rumours
Keeping me grounded
I never said, I never said that they were
Completely unfounded "

Make think this is Morrissey talking back to the media that twisted his words, but that's just a guess.


And as for the Eurovision, I think it would be really cool for Morrissey to be in it, he'd get my vote.

Just like to say that lately i've been reading Morrissey and Marr - The Severed Alliance by Johnny Rogan, it's a really great book and i'm not even halfway through it yet

Definitely The Smiths. Morrisseys solo stuff is ok, the early stuff like Suedehead and Everyday Is Like Sunday is excellent but it can't compare to the Morrissey/Marr songwriting team.

Johnny's playing and arrangements are fabulous and are the real backbone behind what made the smiths so great. Shame they had only 4/5 years of recording music together

It's supposed to sound like a motorcycle, I think. But they ended up sampling a chainsaw for the sound.

I must say i could really relate to these lines in this period of my life. I know that the song is named after Elvis movie withNnancy Sinatra (Speedway) and it is about car race
I think your guess could be right, Irishteen. Moz was also fascinated with boxers in the 90s (how typical is that?)

I disagree. Vauxhall and I, for example is brilliant Moz solo album as well as Quarry and the last one. I think that Moz has great stuff without the Smiths. (as i said, i even prefer Moz solo at he moment). And he has also brilliant B-sides.I dont think that Every day is like sunday is actually his top.

Do you actually consider his solo career to be as good as what he did with The Smiths though?

Like is said i think he's made some excellent songs post-smiths but i don't think he'll quite touch what he achieved with the smiths. Mainly due to having the creativity of Marr putting brilliant melodies to his lyrics and having a great rhythm section too. i'll admit i haven't heard loads of his solo career but his recent stuff has only been ok in my opinion, aside from Last Of The Gang To Die, which was a great song.

I like to compare his solo career to Lennon after the Beatles, he had some great songs like Imagine and Instant Karma but he never did anything quite like A Day In The Life or Tomorrow Never Knows again.
