yes, well i think that morrissey is similar to oscar in the way that his genius lies not so much in his writing (although he's a brilliant writer, dont get me wrong): his genius, like oscar's, lies in his personality, and the way he manages to channel it into his writing.
as for cohen lyrics, take this waltz, and famous blue raincoat are my favourites. <3
Yes, yes, yes. Absolutely. Well said. Which is probably why Morrissey is at his best when he delves into the absurd and focuses on his own experiences rather than trying to preach about world issues.
