We kick off the weekend with the first of five "E" songs in the Morrissey catalogue, this track from World Peace Is None of Your Business.
What do we think of it?
That clip has the same smouldering sexual chemistry as Winslet and DiCaprio in Titanic.
Just actually listened to the song for the first time in a couple of years. Love the arrangement - the accordion, the harp, the acoustic intro etc. We just weren't used to hearing these things in a Morrissey song. The title is great - the idea that the planet we live on, the only known inhabited one in the universe, is actually the loneliest. Clever!
I think the main problem is the lack of musical sections i.e. there's just the one. It doesn't really have a chorus (or alternatively, it doesn't really have a verse). So, some of the ingredients are there for a great song - just needed an extra musical bit.
