100 Tracks of the Decade, #98 - Morrissey, "Irish Blood, English Heart" -

"Morrissey’s truly great ‘comeback’ song, a stirring little nationalistic drama which comes across as impassioned rather than bombastic." -The NME

Of course, Britney Spears, Beyonce and Dizzee Rascal, among others, are placed higher.

"I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris" is the 8th best song of 2009, according to German online music magazine

"The great indie-playwright released a great gem in form of this song. Hymnic refrain, marvellous lyrics ("I'm throwing my arms around Paris because only stone and steel accept my love.") and musically it comes very close to The Smiths due to its light-footed sound. It's unknown what Johnny Marr thinks of it."

The Smiths on Belgian prime time show - 'De slimste mens'
On Wednesday evening a picture of The Smiths appeared in the Belgian prime time show 'De slimste mens'. The three celebrity candidates had to play a 'guess which 80's band is shown in the picture' round. The Smiths were picture 4 out of 10 and... the only band who wasn't recognized by the candidates. Shame on you.

Morrissey font everywhere!
I didn't get a shot of the room-for-rent sign posted on the laundromat's community board, but here are two other places I've spot his handwriting in the last few months. I'm sure it's because it's a neat looking font and not because there are Morrissey fans behind all of these, but still...

#1: Milk carton
#2: Mary Roach chapter headers
