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  !

Johnny Marr is such a distinctive guitarist. As far as I am concerned he is what makes The Smiths special.

yes, i am talking to myself (again!)
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.

True enough. See Morrissey's solo career after The Smiths. Juvenile (though creative and sometimes funny) lyrics, naff instrumental backing. Morrissey and Marr were definitely greater than the sum of their parts. Morrissey himself is another arrested adolescent (like Jeremy Clarkson) whom you'd not want to be stuck in a lift with.

 
Personally I'd love to be stuck on a lift with Clarkson.  He is one funny f*cker.

Morrissey not so much.  Only one would likely survive the confinement.

I don't always agree with Morrissey, but I cannot not like this band, a lot.  Super well written lyrics, great music.  I am the sun and the air/I am the son and the heir ... pure poetry.
