Still a monumental guitar riff...and then there's Morrissey

 
technically it's a guitar effect more than a riff, but agree that it is monumental.

LOL I always thought he sang "I am the Sun and Earth........" actually that might make sense too!  Probably one of the top ten songs of the eighties....and thats saying something!

I highly recommend the Wikipedia article for this song to fully appreciate it...especially the guitar work.

been years since I've come in to look at this song. (2011)

This just might have the most comments and ratings of any song on RP.

 I assume you mean "fanatical" aliens, and not aliens who have rabies.  Either way, it's difficult to know for sure until they show up.  Do you think they'd spare vegetarians and vegans?  It could make for a fun sci-fi story.

I have always loved the overall feel of this song, especially the guitar & vocals, but I've never really paid attention to the lyrics (that's my standard M.O.).

Now that I have ... damn, that hits extremely close to home. It's like my thoughts put to paper in a way that I've never had the courage to admit to.

Shit - Bill, can you please put on some Deee-Lite or something equally happy & positive?

Johnny's  driving rhythm guitar, a haunting riff, and the Morrisey voice are a great combo - especially like the guitar drum break near the end

Eating anything means you are responsible for death, even if you didn't kill the plant or animal directly.  (Same for clothes.  You're murdering cotton plants!)

I am not religious, but still silently pray over my food: "Thank you, chicken/pig/fish/asparagus/broccoli/potato, for giving up your life for mine.  I hope to live in a manner that honors your sacrifice."  (And yes, I stole this idea from American Indians.)

Do you also accuse animals of murder?  They consume meat, too, by killing their prey.

 
For me, it is a case of being conscious. Once I woke up to what I was actually doing by consuming animal flesh I simply could not continue. 

Saying 'thank you' to the animal for giving up its life for a mouthful of meat nowadays, when it is easy to avoid eating it in the first place, seems to me to be a huge cop out. 

I had a thought the other day. If you believe (as I do) that aliens exist, and if you accept some are likely to be much more advanced than us in many areas, then if they look on a 'sub-species' like us as a food source, is it any different from us playing the same card on the animal world? Therefore. . . if we have a race of rabid aliens descend on planet earth and start farming us. . . then I'd suggest anyone who is still comfortable eating other sentient animals should not have any argument with that. 

Just saying.

It was mentioned earlier in the thread.  The version is a cover by Love Spit Love - a band which featured Richard Butler (of The Psychedelic Furs), on vocals.

 
I didn't know that.  But that explains why I've occasionally (mis)remembered that theme as being a Furs song.
