Not Dead Yet
I LOVE IT....

and the obvious influence of New York Dolls' Subway Train...shines through even more....THIS is the song he should have blended with Subway Train on The Quarry tour...

I miss it...It needs to be played again...soon PLEASE...Before I Die...I have One Final Dream....For My Love to be played live again....

It's an okay single, but it's one of those rare Morrissey songs that I like better musically than lyrically. Moz didn't put a great deal of effort into these lyrics, much like "You're The One For Me, Fatty". He just repeats the same scant lines over and over and over again, and it becomes tedious and dull. I do like Chrissie Hynde's backing vocals (wish she'd do more of that instead of the revolting Kristeen), and the music is pretty, and the vocals are pleasant, but the lyrics let it down. If Morrissey had bothered to actually finish the song, it could have been great, but as it is it is nothing more than a 7.
 

Roma De Moz

Fat Children Took My Life
A song I see as the antithesis of "I'd Love To", with Morrissey proclaiming polygamy over devotion to a single person, in desperation of someone to love and love him. Although this song doesn't scale the heights of "I'd Love To", it is generally good and the music is very serene and nice to drive to down long roads in contemplative moods.

A 7.

Not a masterpiece, but still very sweet. I love his "childish" lyrics (reminds me of "The little prince"); "I know you love one person, so why don't you love two"

Steven Patrick I Love You
I just love it... And I think it has one of the greatest lyrics lines ever: "I know you love one person so, why don't/can't you love two"... Master!
 

Your Arsenal

yes I am blind
This is a gorgeous song. its so dreamy.

I'm going to get a Tatoo with Morrissey, followed by "My Love Life" under it, because Morrissey is my love life. :)
 

Your Arsenal

yes I am blind
Haha, we have the same love life then :)
Your tatoo...would it be a picture of him with "love life" under it then or?
I'm not sure I could get a really good tattoo of his face, so I think it would just be the MORRISSEY letters that are used on Viva Hate.

:) I'm so excited to see him here in Hollywood.
 
i liked this single when it came out. Is the clip of him doing it on Top Of the Pops on youtube?

Okay, good. I think the text tattoos are much nicher. I'm really looking forward to get one (when I decided which one).

Well, lucky you. I guess "my love life wlll be dead the next years". Have a wonderful time
