    In Picadilly Palare, the "Why do you smile when you think about Earls Court
    but you cry when you think of all the battles you fight and lost" bit, what does it mean? I am not British and quite ignorant.
    Thanks.

    As Raphael said, Earls Court was a well-known gay area in the 80s. Johnny Marr lived there very briefly, too.
