Today's song is this Morrissey/Boorer composition from You Are the Quarry.
What do we think?
Really don't like this one at all. Foolish, unfunny lyrics set to boring plodding music.
The stupidest lyric is probably:
"Lock-jawed popstars, thicker than pig-shit, nothing to convey,
So scared to show intelligence, it might smear their lovely career"
If they're deliberately not showing intelligence because it will harm their career, then they're not stupid are they?
Am genuinely amazed that so many people like this charmless, clumsy mess!
As much as I have issues with the lyrics, I do agree that the original faster 2002 live version was far superior. As with 'Mexico', Jerry Finn seems to have sucked all the life out of it in studio. It just seems so slow and dull in comparison.Unfortunately not as good as the incredible live version from 2002, which sounded like a continuation of the Maladjusted songs. Then they found the honorable Jerry Finnn (RIP), the thing was completely decelerated and produced in such a way, that nearly no grandeur was left.
