    Since Morrisey has a new album on the way, I found it only appropriate to start an appreciation thread for the former Smiths singer. I was going to do a favorite song poll, but there are just way too many to list.

    Feel free to name your favorite song, whether your like the smiths or morrisey better or whatever you would like.
    I honestly don't feel he gets the credit he deserves, and that he is overlooked in the industry while bands like the cure take credit for inspiring all the current emo artists that grew up on Morrisey.

    I enjoy The Smith's immensley.
    Haven't heard much of morrisey's solo stuff though. As for favorite song, i'm not quite sure. I only recently started to really get into them. So far i guess is "I know it's over"

    Haha, ouch! That is the most painful song to hear if you are going through a break up.

    And now I know how Joan of Arc felt
    Now I know how Joan of Arc felt
    As the flames rose to her roman nose
    And her walkman started to melt

    :up: :up: :up:

    A dreaded sunny day
    So i meet you at the cemetry gates
    Keats and yeats are on your side
    A dreaded sunny day
    So i meet you at the cemetry gates
    Keats and yeats are on your side
    While wilde is on mine

    So we go inside and we gravely read the stones
    All those people, all those lives
    Where are they now ?
    With loves, and hates
    And passions just like mine
    They were born
    And then they lived
    And then they died
    It seems so unfair
    I want to cry


    You say : "'ere thrice the sun done salutation to the dawn"
    And you claim these words as your own
    But i've read well, and i've heard them said
    A hundred times (maybe less, maybe more)
    If you must write prose/poems
    The words you use should be your own


    Don't plagiarise or take "on loan"
    'cause there's always someone, somewhere
    With a big nose, who knows
    And who trips you up and laughs
    When you fall
    Who'll trip you up and laugh
    When you fall


    You say : "'ere long done do does did"
    Words which could only be your own
    And then produce the text
    From whence was ripped
    (some dizzy ****e, 1804)


    A dreaded sunny day
    So let's go where we're happy
    And i meet you at the cemetry gates
    Oh, keats and yeats are on your side
    A dreaded sunny day
    So let's go where we're wanted
    And i meet you at the cemetry gates
    Keats and yeats are on your side
    But you lose
    'cause weird lover wilde is on mine


    Sure !

    Frankly, mr. shankly, this position i've held
    It pays my way and it corrodes my soul
    Oh, i didn't realise that you wrote poetry
    I didn't realise you wrote such bloody awful poetry, mr. shankly

    Send me your pillow, the one that you dream on
    and I'll send you mine.

    This joke isn't funny anymore.
    It's too close to home and it's too near the bone.

    i never really listened to the smiths or morrisey a whole lot, but i've always like "this charming man". i bought a morrisey album a few years ago, the one with "satan rejected my soul" on it. i love that song.

    Never really been big on Morrisey or The Smiths, to be honest. I don't deny that they've got quite a following and influenced a lot of bands, though.

    Morrissey is my god! :D I'm going to see him on Sunday and next Thursday!! The new album is great, not his best, but great. I've been brought up on The Smiths since the day I was born.

    My favourite song...

    Girlfriend in a coma, I know
    I know - it’s serious
    Girlfriend in a coma, I know
    I know - it’s really serious

    There were times when I could
    Have murdered her
    (but you know, I would hate
    Anything to happen to her)

    No, I don’t want to see her

    Do you really think
    She’ll pull through ?
    Do you really think
    She’ll pull through ?
    Do ...

    Girlfriend in a coma, I know
    I know - it’s serious
    My, my, my, my, my, my baby, goodbye

    There were times when I could
    Have strangled her
    (but you know, I would hate
    Anything to happen to her)
    Would you please
    Let me see her !

    Do you really think
    She’ll pull through ?
    Do you really think
    She’ll pull through ?
    Do ...
    Let me whisper my last goodbyes

    I know - it’s serious

    I actually prefer Johnny Marr + The Healers over The Smiths and Morrissey.
