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.
 
Meh, nothing really can make me more depressed then i actually am.

And why is there such a serious lack of postage in here?
 
because it's like I said....
Morrisey is over looked.
 
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 !
 
I was happy in the haze of a drunken hour, but heaven knnows I'm miserable now...
 
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

I had that on my skateboard grip tape in bold white letters back in 91.
 
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

The boy with a thorn in his side.....:D


So was I. The new album is fantastic!
 
I actually prefer Johnny Marr + The Healers over The Smiths and Morrissey.

Well theres no accounting for taste.
Haha, I'm just messing with you, man. Johnny Marr is great but I'm a die hard Morrisey fan.
