Morrissey: One Messed-Up Guy.

Now, I don't want to start any fights here, because I'm sure there have to people here who just *adore* the Smiths and the bundle of hirsute misery that is Morrissey. And, honestly, I kind of like some songs by the Smiths and Morrissey, like "The National Front Disco."

BUT: I have to say that I feel that Morrissey is One Messed Up Guy. I was reading a The Severed Alliance (about Morrissey and...and...Marr? Johnny Marr? That's his name, right?) and I just got to thinking: this guy has problems. And anyone who writes a song like "Jack the Ripper" has a few screws loose.

Like I mentioned before, I'm sick this evening and I had a nightmare with Morrissey in it last night (God only knows why). Also, this guy I used to have this thing with (who also was messed up in the head) had 2 heroes: Morrissey and Ezra Pound. So that has something to do with it too. And you wouldn't like Morrissey either if you had a dream about being his sex slave.

(NOTE: This post composed under the influence of Vicodin and aromatherapy, please do not flame me.)

A CLASSIC. Pfft.

Well, I'm sure he's a brilliant individual. But he gives me the creeps.

I love Morrissey! He`s an insane freek and that`s cool.
My personal favorite is "hold on to your friends".

We wouldn`t flame you paxetaurora! Not all of us like disturbed people.
You like sanity, good for you!

Ahhhh Morissey is cool- he aint that wierd, most musical people can be a bit "out there" really and he is a bit of a musical genius, with the Smiths he wrote some amazing music, personal fave would be Shoplifters of the world unite and Charming Man

Love Morrisey! Especially The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I get, How Soon Is Now and The Lazy Sunbathers. Disturbed people can be fun

morrissey is great.

"if a ten ton bus crashes into us, to die by your side, it's such a heavenly way to die"

lines like that are brilliant. sure his material might come from his oddness and dark thoughts, but it's fodder for great material.

a lot, and i mean a lot of his stuff really is tounge in cheek. i guess you have to have a dark sense of humor to appreciate it.

Chacun ses gouts! Okay, I'll bite. Recommend me some less-twisted Morrissey songs to see if I can appreciate him.
