one more time, thanks,  some songs blast better at volume setting 11 like this one.

Shyness that is particularly vulgar.   High School was along time ago.  But it left a mark

I love watching the old youtube clips of him playing that John Lennon black and white Rickenbacker

Grew up in a small town that had either classic rock or bubble gum pop on the radio.  This was the first "alternative" song that I heard in College that showed me that there was more music out there.  It changed my music listening habits for life.

Just how I feel - I rate this a 9.

But it made me wonder if I really don't like other Smiths songs, so I checked my other ratings for Smith songs: 5, 6, 6, 7, for an average of 6.  Not all that low, compared to some other 80s bands I'm not very fond of.

I missed this song when it first came out, being a bit too young (and my religious folks would have been very suspicious of any rock n roll that wasn't oldies).

I like it. In addition to being musically unique, it also captures an emotion which, if the comments are anything to go by, a lot of people don't want to feel, or don't feel.

And the lyrics!  "A shyness which is criminally vulgar" is such a classic line.

Also the following, one that many introverts will instantly recognize (the context being going to a club):

"So you go and you stand on your own
And you leave on your own
And you go home"

A 10 for me in case that wasn't obvious.

As soon as i hear the whining intro of this song, i cringe.  I honestly do not get this band.  It's made of plastic and pretense.  And meat is delicious!

The real 80's just didn't seem complete without some Morrisey-wrought angst. Evocative, compelling and close to an anthem for so many of that era. Superb.

Great art reflects the human condition. It generates an emotion. The song lyrics touche me  the cyring and reverbreation guitar haunt my soul.

Morrisey Why did you leave??? 
note to rp "disk jockey/ programmer"  terrible segway to next tune

PSD for me!
Today i'm playing 'Loveshit' by The Wildhearts, followed by 'We Are Not Going To Make It' by The Presidents Of The United States Of America.
I'll be back just as soon as The Smiths have left. Cheers

surprised that no one has made a comment about the version of the song that has been used for "Charmed" 
This song is a nice 9 and if it is overplayed as some claim it is, then I have to either listen to RP more often or change the time at which I do because I rarely catch it  !

actually i'm finding PSD is too slow to react, you can get almost all the way to the end of the 1st verse before it (thankfully) stops.
so while i'm typing this i've got my iTunes playing Heads Down No Nonsense Mindless Boogie. which is nice :-)
Just have to wait til the 'now playing' display on RP changes, & i'll be back.
