I might be in the minority here... but to me, it's a lesser track on YATQ. In fact, I forgot it was on YATQ... in my distorted memory, I would have guessed ROTT. In that sense, it seems to be a forecast of what was to follow YATQ, thus the mental association. Hearing it again, there are several solid pieces here, title and lyrics are 100% quintessential Morrissey... but for some reason, it doesn't totally connect for me.
It's also interesting how Alain revealed this was his least favorite Boz tune. Wasn't "Bores" seriously considered as a potential fifth Quarry single? I think they opted for the live version of "There Is a Light/Redondo Beach" instead.
