Morrissey A-Z: "(The) Public Image"

from the Ice Age to the dole age
Lazy and forgettable non-song. Very poor vocal melody, it sounds like 50 other Moz songs from the same era.

Always liked this song and a few other Quarry b sides like Friday Mourning too.
One interesting line is where he sings
"I had a love and she was...."
How many other songs does her mention a female love?

I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.

Yeah. He had rarely if ever been that explicit before nor has he since.

‘I’m a girl and you’re a boy’

I think we can safely assume that in
a Morrissey song, she and he are interchangeable.

Then again, by singing/using the word ‘she’ he is, even in this song,
playing with his public image, the image his fans have of him.
