Music Spotlight: Morrissey

I've got to admit, I'm a bit obsessive when it comes to Morrissey. I used to say that Guided By Voices was my favorite band of all time but now I would say that Morrissey and The Smiths have both trounced Guided By Voices by a country mile. Not only is the music catchy, simple and rewarding, it's the lyrics that really get to me. Most of the lyrics say exactly what I want to say about the world and life in general, and if someone asked me how I was feeling at a current moment in time, I am sure that a Morrissey song or a song by The Smiths would provide the answer to their question. I don't really need to go into his history because he is pretty much known by everyone but I definitely think that he is the voice for anyone who feels like they are socially awkward or anyone who feels unsure about something, and I know it may sound really corny, but his lyrics actually speak up for those people and gives them a voice, and most importantly, hope. 

He is also the maestro of great song titles. Some classics include: 
  • "We hate it when our friends become successful"
  • "The more you ignore me, The closer I get"
  • "National Front Disco". 
Here is one of my favourite songs of his!

"Shyness is nice and shyness can stop you, from doing all the things in life you'd like to"
