    Nick Kent talks Morrissey and The Smiths in DN interview - Fredrik Strage / Morrissey 61 Facebook group

    The basic workings including...how to use an apostrophe?

    Nick Kent talks Morrissey and The Smiths in DN interview - Fredrik Strage / Morrissey 61 Facebook group

    Correction: parts of it are unreadable. Large chunks of it are superb.

    Morrissey A-Z: "First of the Gang to Die, The"

    Agree - for me, it's a much stronger pop hit than Irish Blood...

    Morrissey A-Z: "First of the Gang to Die, The"

    It is all about the ending, this song, isn't it? I find the first parts of the song fine but nothing special, but then the last minute or more...oh my goodness. Just absolutely glorious pop music.

    Shoplifters Of The World - Official trailer

    Off topic, but that guy on the left always really pissed me off, in that footage! (Apologies if it's anyone on this site.)

    Morrissey A-Z: "First of the Gang to Die, The"

    We kick off the weekend with this track from You Are the Quarry - released as a single and reaching #6 in the UK charts. What do we think of this one?

    Morrissey Central "BUT THEN, YOU OPEN YOUR EYES" (March 5, 2021)

    Subtext - "Look at me, spending several hours a day on the fan site of a pop star who I openly despise but am unable psychologically to leave behind." The rest of the world - "Oh. Oh dear..."

    Morrissey A-Z: "Father Who Must Be Killed, The"

    I don't want to be too unkind, but this is one of the least memorable pop songs I've ever heard. (Made even stranger by the fact that it's followed on the album by a truly great song.)

    Morrissey A-Z: "Father Who Must Be Killed, The"

    Our song for today is this track from the Ringleader of the Tormentors album. What do we think of it?

    Strange/unexpected Moz references?

    I honestly had no idea you felt that way - thanks for the info.

    OK this actually looks like a huge amount of fun, I like it!

    It makes me happy that Nick Kent even listened to California Son, bless him. I'll always admire him for his review of The Queen Is Dead.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Fantastic Bird"

    Ha! If you're going to rip off two songs, you couldn't do much better than those.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Fantastic Bird"

    We kick off the F's with this track, released on the 2009 edition of Southpaw Grammar but apparently recorded way back in 1992. What do we think of this one?

    What song are you listening to right now?

    I love this song but the ethics of it worry me a bit? Like, is it OK to write a song from the perspective of a (still living) woman, about her old relationship with her (dead) husband? I dunno.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Everyday Is Like Sunday"

    I might be biased (because I love it so) but maybe "Boxers" came quite close? Anyhow, only a week or so before we all get to shower "Get off the Stage" with love...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Everyday Is Like Sunday"

    Yes, the "nuclear" angle allegedly inspired by this Neville Shute novel:

    Reporting back: yup, you're right, it's great!

    Morrissey A-Z: "Everyday Is Like Sunday"

    Q: does Stephen Street get enough credit for writing the music, for this song? I'm honestly not dissing Marr, but this feels musically superior to a lot of the Smiths' output - or was Morrissey more open to different musical ideas by this point, post-split?
