    Each Monday until release of the upcoming deluxe reissue of The Queen Is Dead, The Smiths will be releasing a previously unreleased live single version of each track from the album.

    Share your memories of each track using the relevant hashtags to appear on the site.

    "Recorded live at the Irvine Meadows, Laguna Hills on 28th August, 1986. Live track does not feature on Deluxe Edition. Pre-order The Queen Is Dead (Deluxe):"

    The full 'video' just placed on YT:

      Some listened to it at first cause they felt he was gloomy and depressed just like them. Then that changed and instead the songs became a celebration of life and its struggles. With time his message meant something else than it did at first.

      I suspect us single kids enjoyed it and understood it more cause we had time to dig deep into it unlike people with brothers and sisters making fun of the silly man with the heart on his sleeve.

      I love the songs on TQID album but i'm thinking that the sound is too clean and too pop on it.
      I've Always preferred live versions of the songs... raw, savage, speed...
      This wah wah guitar is directly from the stooges heritage.

      Go to either of the sites in green, use the hashtag to denote your memories:


      The confusing bit: 'to appear on' - as 'memories' did show up initially.
      Your memories were then meant to show at:
      Their site initially showed an aggregate stream of hashtag information as you scrolled down - which has since gone (saw it with my own eyes).
      I guess they are vetting them now to be safe?
      J'espère que cela pourra aider.

      For me the Smiths are up there with the Beatles.

      For a while afterwards solo Morrissey was almost Lennon-like in his brilliance.

      Then McCartney.

      "When I get older, loosing my hair
      Many years from now
      Wil you still be sending me a Valentine?
      Birthday greetings, bottle of wine?
      If I had been out to quarter to three
      Would you lock the door?
      Will you still feed me, will you still need me?
      When I'm sixtyfour.
      Oo oo oo oo oo oo
      You'll be older too oo oo oo.
      Grandchildren on your knees
      Vera, Chuck and Dave!"

      Always wondered about that.
      I have only two knees, sorry folks, one of you has to move.
      Pick a straw! :)

      Wish I could agree but I have always hates The Beatles. I am too young to ever appreciate them in any way, shape or form.

      My brother was born in 1956 and he loved The Beatles which was weird since he was only into heavy metal and that but we were both blown away when we went to a Depeche Mode gig in Stockholm.

      I am a bit confused by Spotify. Is there any way I can download this new live track, so when this website disappears in 6 months (or whenever) it isn't lost forever?

      The memories appear to be working again - scroll down here after selecting The Queen is Dead track:
      Should look like this:
      (ignore the French - I have no idea where that came from!).

      I believe Spotify (app) allows you to download tracks, but not sure of the DRM or if you can keep it forever etc.
      You are better off getting an mp3 from the YouTube version.
      Or have this one and save the grief altogether:

      Morrissey was 90% of The Smiths, That's why it's fair to compare ONLY Morrissey's career with The Smiths
      duh! people stop arguing 'bout that
