The Smiths - “Reel Around The Fountain” (Live; Derby; December 7, 1983)
I dreamt about you last night,
And I fell out of bed twice.
You can pin and mount me like a butterfly.
But “take me to the haven of your bed”
Was something that you never said.
Two lumps, please,
You’re the bee’s knees,
But, so am I.
Ain’t nobody like Moz.
The Smiths? Check!
The ““Productivity Guru””
"He knows so much about these things!"
The Smiths - “Handsome Devil,” “Still Ill,” and “This Charming Man” (Live; The Derby Assembly Rooms; July, 1983)
Three absolute classics from the early days.
Let me get my hands
On your mammary glands.
And, let me get your head
On the conjugal bed.
I say, I say, I say…
My God. The hair, the flowers, the shirt, the Rickenbacker—and all that exquisite dolour.
There was just nobody else like The Smiths. Nobody.
How could something this “Eighties” still sound so wonderfully fresh? That’s the gift, I guess. Just terrific.
"La la laaaaaaaa…"
No way in a million years can you guess who the next Squarespace song is an homage to.
Yep. Heaven knows I’m goin’ Wilde. And it’s murder, it is murder, it is murder.
Being a non-scientific exploration of the musical sub-strata on which one of my favorite bands has stood.
