Default Why do you come here?

Why do you hang around?




For me it's the insightful dialogue on destroying the cis straight normative and sex positive banter.

And also The Smiths. I love that band.

Yeah, The Smiths keep me coming back too. Shame that the singer is so insufferable.

Also nostalgia, having made actual friends here, boredom. I used to discover new music here back in the day that people with taste still posted.

I also love the Smothers Brothers, which is why I come to this The Smurfs forum.

Strange is probably the most consistently on the bottom of peoples rankings but I do love the majority of it

I feel the opposite. Queen is the only one where every song is perfect. The others all have at least 1 or 2 which are annoying or hard to listen to. That song on S/T where Morrissey shrieks in his horrible falsetto for 2 minutes is ear cancer. Also not liking Vicar is incomprehensible to me.

Strange is probably the most boring and I feel like it was probably hard for them to follow up Queen... also wasn't the band collapsing at that point? Regardless, we're only picking the weakest of 4 great albums.

Never Had No One ever is another song on Queen that's just a bridge too far for me

it's lacking in anything clever it's just an eye roller that goes on way too long

Strangeway's Last Night I Dreamt Somebody Loved Me, is an infinitely better take on the same subject

I agree that Last Night is a better song than Never Had

I always wondered what a whole album of songs like Suffer Little Children and The Hand that Rocks the Cradle would have been like

it's like they were almost a gothic post punk group

it's also a big shame we never got to hear what Strangeways songs sound like live


that concludes my Smiths opinions thank you

at least solo Moz "carried the torch" for the later Smiths stuff. One of the most successful transitions into solo-artistdom off a successful band I can think of rn

Some of Morrissey's solo stuff is as good as The Smiths, but he has never played or recorded with another band that matches him as well as The Smiths

I've seen Morrissey live a couple times both times show ended early from uncontrollable stage invasion

I like some of his solo songs but I'd never say they got anywhere near Smiths level that's just me

I agree, Johnny Marr is a very good guitarist, and the other two in the band weren't bad either. It's a shame Johnny Marr can't write decent lyrics.
