ESPN Sports Guy (aka Bill Simmons) in his Jan. 27th column names Morrissey's "Suedehead" as the #2 definitive song of the 1980's, right behind When In Rome's "The Promise":

"Anyway, these would be my six choices (with apologies to "Relax" by Frankie Goes to Hollywood, which wasn't quite morose enough since it was about an orgasm):

1. "The Promise," by When In Rome
2. "Suedehead," by Morrissey
3. "Uncertain Smile" by The The
4. "A Forest" by The Cure
5. "The Killing Moon," by Echo and the Bunnymen
6. "Age of Consent," by New Order

So there you go. And yes, I spent about 90 minutes coming up with that list. And you wonder what I do all day."

  • Yep he is fan of Morrissey and The Smiths and always mentions them when he does write ups of Sports of the 1980s.

    He also look a bit like Alain Whyte.

  • I can't say that I can complain about the #1 choice's name, but Moz needs to be at the top of that list.

    ...and how?
  • This chap like his English sounds!!

    Wonder if the BBC's Steve Ryder likes his Moz and Bunnymen quite as much as his American counterpart!

    Or the bonkers David Icke, he could well be a Moz fan!
