Bono: "That's what I don't get...I don't get the miserable thing...at all...I find him very funny "Girlfriend in a Coma" when I heard it, I nearly crashed my car and ended up in a coma. He has that gift. That is not the mark of a miserable man. They're just miserable people that dont' get the humor."

i know that Bono gave Morrissey an award a few years back (or was it the other way around i don't remember anymore) And I know that there was a clip circulating the internet where you could see the both of them walking offstage together talking and laughing.

I am also pretty sure Mozzer was at one of the Slane concerts. I also saw a picture but that was a long time ago.

I don't think he's a fan of U2 but there is respect from his side and that's a lot coming from Mozzer

I 'll try to find them, but not sure if I will find it back.

I found a little more info..

Morrissey presented U2 with the Best Band Award in 1998 in Belfast at the Hotpress Awards. He said 'this goes to the very sexy U2'. He sat conversing with Bono throughout the nights event.

Bono's best love songs always are about Ali. They are DEFINITELY NOT bad... it's just that they are more personal to him.... If I would not be a U2 fan... maybe I could listen to those tracks more objective.... but as I am I always know that they're about Ali...
Moz is more open... you can relate to those lyrics...

Yeas, i also always relate Bonos lyrics to Ali. And i believe they are wonderful as a couple. The thing isbviously Moz didnt have "Ali" which explains why Bono "doesnt get the miserable thing".I mean how could he understand?No matter what, he always had strong love and support. I think that2s why you feel Moz has more beautiful songs.Pain and suffering can produce the greatedst beauty. And Bono didnt suffer like that. He really doesnt get it how is like when !That joke isnt funny any more. "
Although i love few lyris on new albums like...True love can keep beauty innocent....one of my favourites ever

I think you got me wrong. They both have had hard times in life, it's just the they cope with it very differently when it comes to lyrics. That's all!

Well, anyway: They both ROCK!

I agree they both had hard times, i just think Bono didnt experienced "there's a club if you'd like to go you
could meet somebody who really loves you
so 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." or "If the day came when i felt the natural emotion i ll get such an shock ill probably jump to the ocean. Or "i entered nothing and nothin entered me. "


And i just couldnt resist to quote:

I see the world it makes me puke...... I listen his new album all the time

I've had 'I Know It's Over' on repeat for ages Just thought I'd share that piece of useless info. It's a really great song, fantastic lyrics ('Oh Mother I can feel the soil falling in over my head'- has there ever been a better expression of desolation in music?!), amazing vocal and the song picks up at exactly the right moment.

I love both Morrissey's and Bono's lyrics, but you just can't compare them.

On a brighter note: bought my ticket for Morrissey's gig at Marlay Park in Dublin on the 22nd of August! Can't wait!!

There is something a little more "real" about Morrissey's lyrics I reckon, but that is not to say that they are better than U2's

Ive got the singles compilation, queen is dead and meat is murder (which i don't know all that well yet).

Just a few questions.

1. Is Morrissey really a hardline right-winger as I have heard some people say?

2. Can anyone gimme a chronological rundown of the official Smiths studio albums, as well as the Morrissey studio albums

Also, as a budding lyricist, I think Morrissey is arguably the Shakespeare of lyricism, and every lyricist should use him as inspiration.
