    The "Classic" - modern band

    The Smiths is one of those few bands which have actually walked the line between the classic rock n roll cult and the modern rock spirit. Not to forget the sad but thoughtful lyrics by Morrisey. What really makes these lyrics unique is the thematic clarity which binds the...

    This Night Has Opened My Eyes ~ The Smiths

    In a river the color of lead Immerse the baby's head Wrap her up in the news of the world Dump her on a doorstep, Girl This night has opened my eyes And I will never sleep again You kicked and cried like a bullied child A grown man of 25, Oh, he said he'd cure your ills But he...

    The World Won't Listen

    One Of My Favorite Bands.

    I've loved The Smiths since '84 when Meat is Murder came out. My favorite song by them at the moment is "Ask" but that changes all the time. The whole albums "the Queen Is Dead" and "Strangeways, Here We Come" are always favorites. I like solo Morrissey but his really needs...

    The Oscar Wilde of the 1980s

    Morrissey was the Oscar Wilde of the 1980s.  Some of the lyrics are just unforgettable--like for Rubber Ring or What She Said.  He knew how to be miserable but keep just enough of a smirk to let us know he knew he was being a bit melodramatic.  Where's that...

    To Pretend to Be Happy Could Only Be Idiocy!

    I have been a huge fan of the group The Smiths since way back in the early 1980's.  I remember buying Hatful of Hollow and being totally blown away.  I was only 14 and remember thinking that nobody had ever reached me, touched me as much as this one record did.  I...

    Meat Is Murder

    I have loved The Smiths since I was about 13 and my dad introduced them to me. I literally listen to them on my ipod every night before I go to sleep.

    Through All These Years They Are Still My Favourite Band

    I started listening to The Smiths when I was 14/15.  I was immediately drawn to their music and imported whichever records I could afford. It's 25 years down the line and they are still the band I never get tired to listen too.  I love Morrissey's stuff too

    Where Have I Been Up To Now?

    What Amazing Talent

    All the great songs that have been so important to my music taste. Morrissey is very bold and gifted at his vocals and his lyrics. I have been listening to them since Fall 1984, I can listen to them once or a million times, the music moves me as much now as it ever has.

    After All These Years...

    The Smiths are still as relevant to me today as the first time I heard William It Was Really Nothing. Morrissey's witty lyrics and strong vocals matched with Marr's guitar- what a great time for rock! What bugs me though is when people call them emo...WTF!? If people think...

    The Smiths – William, It Was Really Nothing

    "I don't dream about anyone except myself" Who do you think is saying this? Is it Morrissey and his poking fun of his self-importance or is this the quote of the "fat girl?" Whoever it is, it's pure genius. And of course, Marr's playing is amazing. I'd love to be able to...

    There Is A Light That Never Goes Out

    My first experience with The Smiths was in the 80s. I heard one or two of their tracks, but didn't think much of them at the time as I was into heavy metal and hard rock. In the 90s I found the band again in college, and right of the bat they started speaking to me. Killing me...

    Saved my life with their music, but then again their music has probably plunged me into some of the saddest moods I've ever felt. I guess it's just nice to be able to listen to your emotions so poetically.
