The above documentary says what I wanted to say but couldn't quite put into words!
Personally life changing song, confirmed by their appearance on TOTP. Wonderful choice. xx
@Bukowski I'd been going through a tricky transition from metalhead to indie kid during 83/84. This track and this band sealed the deal for me. So pretty life changing for me too.
@simonp After 'This Charming Man' on TOTPs I felt, for the first time, that it was ok to be 'different'.
Best opening line of any song ever. Possibly.
love love love
Morrissey & Marr ..the ultimate chemistry :-)
One of the best singles ever.
Absolutely brilliant Abs - I so nearly jammed this myself. I'm glad you have - I love the vid!
Total love for this of course @simonp @Bukowski well, for me, a confirmation that all was in fact well after all and connected me with people who were also feeling a bit 'different'. Defining moment.
Great choice! :)
@PartyTearsFew @simonp @Bukowski It was similar for me. I think the TOTP appearance was my introduction to them and the year that followed led me to people that liked being different. That was the thing for me I didn't want to be like everybody else. I loved reading and words and 'clever people' and was a vegetarian; there was a huge 'Morrissey understands me' thing going on! x x
