Morrissey? Sexual? Nah fairly sure Reel Around the Fountain is just about dancing /sMaybe Morrissey is that too, when he says there's a really strong sexual component to pop music and so on.
And sometimes we're really blind.It is natural that we assume Morrissey's songs are about sex and/or homosexuality and/or Johnny Marr because we know a lot of them are, but I think a lot of his songs don't really have a deeper meaning and sometimes we can try to read too much into them.
"That Special Gift of Gayness" would definitely be a far better title for his new LP.Of course. Quoting Wikipedia: "Gay male speech, particularly within North American English, has been the focus of numerous modern stereotypes, as well as sociolinguistic studies. Scientific research has uncovered phonetically significant features produced by many gay men and demonstrated that listeners accurately guess speakers' sexual orientation at rates greater than chance. One feature of the speech is sometimes known as the "gay lisp", though researchers acknowledge that it is not technically a lisp".
So that's the "cue" I guess. When that special gift of gayness emerges, you just really know the narrator will 'roll' from the understalls and gurgle from the 'golden circle' and the bud will blossom. So this is really a very positive gay anthem. It's fitting to have this song discussed during the 'Gay lives matter'-month
We leave behind the L's with this Morrissey/Street composition, originally a B-side of "The Last of the Famous International Playboys" and also included on the Bona Drag compilation album (as well as others, subsequently).
What do we think of this one?
That could be. The fellow is also likely Irish with the mention of lucky, clover, saints & Jesus.Is Morrissey writing about himself here? His own lisp is pretty noticeable at times.
Nope, it's about inspecting someone's anus in the darkened balcony of a theater.Christ, this thread. I just thought "Lucky Lisp" was about Moz looking forward to a friend's moment in the spotlight. Saints, Jesus, "Your Grandma's omen" - a guy with Catholic heritage. I wondered if it was about James Maker and his (unsuccessful) attempts to make it in the music industry.
