Today's song is this Morrissey/Nevin composition, the second single released from Kill Uncle, reaching #33 on the UK chart.
What do we think?
Musically this is so spartan as to be almost not there. It's another that confirms what Mark Nevin has said about him writing musical sketches that were never expanded upon.
It's easy on the ear, but there is a lack of substance to both the music and the lyrics. The words are a long way short of those that Morrissey had written while in The Smiths
and it was one of those periods when he was definitely lacking in confidence and purpose.
It was never really likely to be a big chart hit.
The rockabilly version is good fun even if the musicianship is hardly perfect.
I enjoy the video and Chrissie Hynde proved herself to be a good sport by agreeing to appear.
