I honestly don't want to keep repeating myself, but Morrissey set the standard very high for his own solo work in the 80s and 90s. Such twisted little pop songs are always connected to the time in which they were written. It's 100% British. The wordplay, the symbolism, the teasing, only occurs as folklore (Ruth, Jacky) in the last 3-4 records, not out of pure conviction. In 1989, he was still finding himself as a solo artist and had a feeling for the special. Today almost everything sounds bitter, accusatory and the lightness is completely missing musically. "Lucky Lisp" is a great song. A song that only an artist like Morrissey could use as a B-side and which, in terms of attention, was certainly given as much time as the irresistible A-side. That's probably the song's only fate. The A-side is simply even better! The circulating, alternative version is also interesting, on which Morrissey doesn't show any nerve and intones perfectly.
