    It's dark outside and pissing rain and The Smiths are playing..

    Any favourites boys?




    Does the body rule the mind - or does the mind rule the body?

    I don't know.

    Under the iron bridge, we kissed and although I ended up with sore lips..

    It just wasn't like the old days anymore.

    No it wasn't like those days...

    Am I still ill?

    Wow who has better drugs than me? You! I only remember that 80's Smith song that was the hit. It was iconic.

    I don't get your drug comment.

    It's pouring here in Montreal, quiet and dark. It reminds me of being in Ireland and the UK.

    Ireland and the UK remind me of decent music - The Smiths (amongst many)

    Is this the song you're talking about?

    Many people have covered The Smiths, but this is the best cover by far.

    Morrissey is such a dreamboat.

    "Please please please let me let me let me get what I want this time"

    A friend of mine had a radio show at the independent station and she turned me on to all sorts of music. One day she played "Hatful of Hollow" in its entirety and it blew me away. I loved the music and the lyrics and wound up wearing out the LP and cassette of it. The album actually helped me come out. At first, I didn't understand why I related so well to the lyrics but over time it made more and more sense. I pretty much love every Smith song, but here's three favorites from "Hatful"...

    I got a $20 bill, that says no ones ever seen you without make-up.
    You're always made up.
    And I'm sick of your tattoo's, and the way you always criticize the Smiths
    and Morriseys. -

    "Mixtape" by Brand New, off their debut album "Your Favorite Weapon". Jesse Lacey was a fan of The Smiths and Morriseys, and therefore - so am I.

    My favorite Morrissey album. A lot of memories of pain and growing up with that album.

    How true.



    Others conquered love but I ran. I sat in my room and I drew up a plan.

    What she read
    All heady books
    She'd sit and prophesise
    It took a tattooed boy from Birkenhead
    To really really open her eyes!

    Where did she find this tattoed boy from Birkenhead?? I must be reading the wrong heady books.
