the boy with the thorn in his side...
    #4294469 - 06/14/05 10:01 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

so, i've been a huge fan of the smiths since as long as i can really remember. no matter what phase of life or mood i'm in, anytime i hear morrissey crooning with johnny marr playing these little delicate guitar riffs, i feel both incredibly sad and incredibly happy at the same time. i think i have the lyrics to nearly every smiths song memorized, even after all this time.



however, i've never really listened to morrissey (although i liked his newest album). a torrent site i belong to has a morrissey discography currently being shared, so i think i'll download it and give it a try.

anybody else a fan of the smiths?

I love the Smiths. I have Morrisey's first album, it's awesome.

I like the Smiths as well. Morrisey is also very good..

I love the Smiths, but it seems with the Smiths it was more about the music and the lyrics interacting. With Morrissey's solo work, it's like his time to showboat himself and it reeks of pretentiousness. It's good but...only in small doses.

Right on, Smiths are one of my all time classics. I enjoy them more than Morrissey...

that's been my overall opinion or Morrissey's solo stuff as well. but i haven't given it the proper listening thru i think it deserves.

a friend of mine told me that he once saw morrissey playing in mexico city. there was a huge swarm of young, gay, mexican youth chasing after morrissey, and he had to be escorted out through the mob. :lol:

J Mascis did a great cover version of "the boy with the thorn in his side..." on Martin + Me.

I think Morrisey should take the best songs so far from his solo career and rework them with Marr. Obviously, the difference between The Smiths and Morrisey solo is Marr. He's just so understated and clever. It's too bad they had a falling out because it's never been the same. Meat is Murder is my favorite Smiths record by the way.

I like that album, too. I saw him on that tour in Portland at Roseland.
