Great set lists at these recent gigs.

Would've been ever better if he'd played this beautiful song (hopefully he will when he tours the UK):

reel you know if he played that in Britain it would start up all the crap that's just died down,its actually a song I love.

New back drop for November Spawned a Monster. He should have covered "A thin Line between love and Hate".

I don't quite understand. Why would one of his most heartfelt songs about alienation stir anything up? Because it mentions Bengali in the title?

'Asian Rut' from Kill Uncle is about an Asian boy who fights back against racists. Should that song be forgotten from his catalogue too because of the word Asian in it's title?

A song can be interpreted however you want it to be. Everyday is Like Sunday could be taken as a racist anti-Christian song that blasphemes the sabbath - if you're daft enough to think like that.

Well, yes, but I think once is quite enough. And somehow the accidental aspect makes it worse - like a case of builder's bum in reverse (if you know what I mean).

:rolleyes:

oh quit it ! you're not fooling anyone, we know you're loving it.

Thank god that we seem to be, at least temporarily, out of the woods as far as the pretty dire setlists of the past few years go. A couple interesting things to note, as it definitely doesn't take a setlist of Smiths songs and 'hits' to necessarily make a fun and varied show:

Of a 16-song set...

5 songs were b-sides (Hairdresser, Is It Really So Strange, If Don't Like Me, Munich, Jack the Ripper)
3 songs were non-album singles (William, Sunny, Back on the Chain Gang)

And less scientific, but you could argue that besides Playboys, November and Sunday...the rest were essentially deep-ish album cuts. "How Soon is Now?" was great as usual, but he could have easily closed with something more obscure from his own catalog and it still would've made a killer set.

In fairness, it has to be mentioned that despite being a 'career-spanning' set, he played very little post-Quarry material. This often makes for a better show (for some of us) but I think he could actually tossed in a newer track or two and it would've been fine. That said, I was very happy not to hear World Peace or Ganglord or any of the other dirge-like warhorses of the past few tours.

Blah blah...great show!

Found this using Google image search:

Stefania Sandrelli in Seduced and Abandoned. Germi. 1964.

There are two films with that title:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2402179/

She is from the old 1964 one cause I reckon Moz would never put Alec Baldwin up as a backdrop cause that would take a pretty big wall to achieve that. His mouth alone would require a venue like the Dallas Cowboys one.
