I had completely forgotten Children In Pieces. I was thinking the finger hard bit in I Am Veronica reminded me of The Kid's A Looker. Morrissey did say that Jesse was the only usual band member to play on Bonfire, so I wouldn't be surprised if he wrote the music for Veronica.The 'press your finger hard' pre-chorus bit kind of reminds me of 'Children in Pieces'. Maybe it's just that rising chord sequence. I wonder if it's another Jesse co-write?
This song doesn’t smack you in the face like earlier lead singles have done, lyrically it’s sparse and it’s the I,I, I, bit along with the backing vocals that are the hook.I don't want to say bad things about new Morrissey songs but hoping this is like a "test" and he's saving the good stuff.
