If I weren't a Morrissey fan, could I use it?
this is silly, I have always use words that make people look at me with desdain, I don't need Morrissey's permission. Nor yours, and I say this with respect.
I have to admit that the words "vile" and "fascinating" in particular have crept into my vocabulary lately, especially when writing. It is probably as a result of watching/listening to so many Morrissey interviews, although it's not intentional. Mind you, I always unintentionally pick up and use words and ways of speaking from other people. Maybe this condition is a Moz-fan thing.
Also? I only found out that it's considered a Morrissey Word when I joined solo. "Vile" is just a great word and I find that no other word will do in vile situations.
I have no intention of speaking like Morrissey because I'd much rather be myself than someone else. Even him. If I did want to speak like Morrissey I'd go in for "obstreperous" rather than "vile." "Vile" is far too common of a word to call it a Morrissey Word.
