Burn down the disco
Prefer the Troy Tate version of the song.
Same. I am forever indebted to the friend who gave me a copy of his bootleg of the Tate sessions in the nineties. This is one of my favorite Smiths songs in almost any incarnation, but in the Tate version, it is upmost echelon. Johnny Marr possessed a peerless elegiac genius in many of those early songs—Reel Around the Fountain, Suffer Little Children, Wonderful Woman, &c., and Morrissey’s poetry was the ideal match.
