The quality of the Smiths songs is phenomenal, isn't it?
Used to really love this song when I was a poor, maladjusted teenager!
But I'm not so keen on it now. The music is undeniably great as are the vocal melodies. But I find the lyrics a bit ... sixth form. I'm giving it 7...

Now, Today, Tomorrow.....
An absolutely CRACKING tune. Some fantastic guitar work and savage lyrics too. One of The Smiths best tunes. 9 out of 10 without a doubt!​
