Now that we've all heard a third track, which one is your favourite?
Jesus wept.I voted Notre Dame. Musically the best of the three, and while the lyrics are the bad poetry of a conspiracy theorist, that’s actually better than the boring late-Morrissey-by-numbers lyrics of the other two. I guess if Morrissey is really going bonkers and lazy, then let him go all the way with it. Spectacle is better than bland. Point in Notre Dame’s favor: it’ll never be gleefully sung along to by 8000 carnivorous normals at Glastonbury.
I went with 'Notre-Dame' too; 'Pop' a close 2nd, & 'WM' 3rd. Looking at/listening to the video footage, N-D seemed to have been well received by the crowd on the night. I love the music, & find the almost chant/mantra-style of it addictive, tbh.
I expect they didn't mate. Let's be honest, lots of people who like M songs have no clue what most smiths / M songs are about- the homo stuff especially, The further you get from the UK/Ireland the less is understood, as a general rule.Did they understand the context of the lyrics though, I agree, the music is good.
