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 played it constantly.  Everybody laughed at me.  They were all into the standard 80's crap.  I would sit in my room and listen to Morrissey.  To this day, it is one of my favourite all time albums.  I am now 36.  I believe that during my teenage years, this group helped to keep me alive.  And they have never left my side.

My favourite track of theirs varies from week to week, from day to day; right now it is 'Reel Around The Fountain'  The Hatful of Hollow version.
