For me it's definitely It's Not Your Birthday Anymore. God what an amazing song. I couldn't stand it for years. Now I can't stop playing it. Amazing song.
I'm curious why you couldn't stand it for years? It was my favourite off Years as soon as I heard it, and remains the best track still.For me it's definitely It's Not Your Birthday Anymore. God what an amazing song. I couldn't stand it for years. Now I can't stop playing it. Amazing song.
I have always loved that one...Driving Your Girlfriend Home
I don't know why. I just never liked it.I'm curious why you couldn't stand it for years? It was my favourite off Years as soon as I heard it, and remains the best track still.
Never liked the word Dykes to describe anyone and don't like these sort of tags as a whole eg. Gay is an absolutely awful term too, people are people and surely that's good enough. For that reason I was never fond of the title or the lyrics, that said it's a belter of a tune and probably one of the best off of Quarry and could be considered the 'classic' Morrissey sound.all the lazy dykes for me was a track I would always skip,love it now.
Southpaw. Initially I thought it was just an overlong mess on an album, that runs out of good enough material after three songs. Nowadays I appreciate it a lot -- but still think the album is just half there. The Operation, Dagenham Dave, Best Friend On The Payroll and Do Your Best are all well below par.
Yeah it's a great song and tune for that matter, the imagery from the lyrics is very clever actually plus it's a great singalong. Hugely underrated and a real shame it got dropped for the deluxe reissue.Oh, also Roy's Keen!
I love that song now, great innuendo and fantastic vocal. I adore the way he articulates words like "chancing" and "chamois" here.
Now Southpaw was one I took to immediately; I thought it was an absolute classic.
Teachers Are Afraid? Well I still have problems with that one.
Love Dave (it's a pop song though about a charming chav), & Payroll & DYB.
Why would Morrissey put your song Nobody Loves You on his album? ?I loved Teachers from the start. It is a great dramatic statement with which to open your album. Okay, 11 minutes is too much, 7--8 would definitely have been enough, but still. I love also Reader Meet Author and like Boy Racer, but then the album just collapses for me. Bookending your album with two 10-minute songs is a ballsy move, but the six songs sandwiched between them hint to me that he didn't ahve enough material at the time. Leaving Nobody Loves You out borders on the insane.
