Our song for today is this Morrissey/Boorer composition from Low in High School - also released as a single.
What do we think?
Rip off? Are you familiar with the word "pastiche"?I tried hard to like this one but the video stopped me in my tracks.
I couldn't believe that a shirtless Edward Woodward was cast in the role of singer in the video.
I'm not one given to cringing but this video soon changed that.
Also the video is a rip off of some soul group for the 70s isn't it?
My daughter was the same with When Last I Spoke to Carol. She was three or four, I think.This is my son's favourite Morrissey track. He is 5. I had to play it 4 times in a row driving to his swimming lesson last week.
I'm not sure what this says about the song, but it's my favourite from LIHS...admittedly, that bar is quite low.
Well, not really a sad trend.A strong enough little number, Jacky’s Only Happy When She’s Up On The Stage is good, but one can see a sad trend here; in this enjoyable alphabetised romp we, yesterday and the day before, enjoyed two timeless classics – both B-Sides. Today we have a song penned some 25 years later which pales in comparison, but was considered worth of being released as a single. Of course, some (no names mentioned) can celebrate this as a Christmas number 1, as it indeed was (before they quietly add, under their breath, that it was number 1 in the ‘UK Vinyl Singles Chart’).
