Yeah, "this chaaaaaaaaaaarming maaaaaaan"

I love the who put the M in Manchester DVD! He seems so "lucky" (hard word for him!)

Well, to put this conversation to another level:

What do you think about his style????
Cause I really love it. The way he dresses now fits him perfectly!!!

Opinions requested

WARNING: Long post!

Ok now that I've had the album for a few days I just want to say that I love it. I can see what Zootlesque means about some of the songs sounding the same (I think that might have a lot to do with Morrissey's vocals/lyrics being so prominent over the music for a quite a few of the songs) but when this band writes a good song they sure do write a good song!

I love the way that the lyrics exactly capture that whole feeling of melancholy and insecurity (about yourself) that characterises much of your adolescense. For example, 'How Soon Is Now?' "And you go and you stand on your own/And you leave on your own/And you go home/ And you cry/And you want to die". That's it! That's exactly how you feel!

But what I really absolutely adore about the lyrics is that the whole depression is topped off with really black humour. I mean how can you listen to "And if a double-decker bus crashes into us" and not get even a twitch of a smile? (or was that just me? )

"Why do I smile at people I'd much rather kick in the eye?" probably best sums up what I love about The Smiths lyrics. We all feel like that at times, it isn't a particular nice part of us but we all feel it, and it's put in a humorous way.

Anyway, the stand-out tracks on the album so far for me:

Panic
The Boy With the Thorn In His Side
Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now
Ask
Bigmouth Strikes Again
How Soon Is Now?
What Difference Does It Make?
Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others
Girlfriend In A Coma
There Is A Light That Never Goes Out
Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want
Sheila Takes A Bow
Shoplifters Of The World Unite
Last Night I Dreamt Someone Loved Me

I could go through every track individually and tell you why I think it's so great, my favourite lyric here, this great guitar riff there but, frankly, I think this post is long enough as it is! So, Tilli thanks for recommending the album

Morrissey's Style:

The guy had a quiff in his hair that added another six inches to his height and he got away with it. It even actually suited him! This guy has bags of style.


Well, if you've managed to actually get this far and have read all of my long, rambling post then and if I've irreversably ruined your eyesight as a result then I apologise unreservedly.

My only gripe with the Best of is that it doesn't have 'Cemetery Gates' on it. WTF? It's one of the most famous Smiths songs. That's like U2 releasing a Best of without Streets or One on it!

No problem, I could read it and even post something!!!

yeah, I def. can relate to that! I always have a HUGE smile on my face during "there is a light that never goes out".

Although the lyrics are so depressing the kind he sings them and the music (especially during Smiths times) makes you feel so positiv!!! Like "shit, I know that live sucks, but it's ok" You know??!!
Everyday is like sunday, everyday is silent and grey!
.... Come nuclear come.... (with him going down to his knees and praying) Just perfect!
It's just great!

Nice that you like his style,too!

Anyone else in here???? (Hope so.... Cause he's dressed .... hmmmmmmm..... sooooooo gorgeous!!!)

"Jack the Ripper" is my fave Moz song. I see him sometimes at bars in L.A. He has a very large fan base here and he's still looks good...

glad people are checking smiths and morrissey out. It's never too late.

i just lestened to Morrisey and i hae to admit....he made me sad. I listened I have forgiven Jesus. I am not feeling so good, so i have to admit, it is harder when i hear lines like...
"Why did you give me so much desire, When there is nowhere I can go to offload this desire?
And why did you give me so much love in a loveless world, When there is no one I can turn to
To unlock all this love?"

I can now add 'Still Ill' to the liked songs list- even if it's just because of the way he says "I dunno".
