1. I kissed you in the water

    And made your dry lips sing

    I saw you look like a Japanese baby

    In an instant I remembered everything

    I just love Elkie, she's on a UK tour this year but it doesn't come to Belfast. I seriously considered getting flights to see her in October, but I'm on holiday in September and October and I am seeing Cher in November. I cant make the numbers work. :(

    The Smiths
    sm.png

    The Smiths were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1982. The group consisted of vocalist Morrissey, guitarist Johnny Marr, bassist Andy Rourke and drummer Mike Joyce. Critics have called them one of the most important bands to emerge from the British independent music scene of the 1980s. In 2002, NME named the Smiths "the artists to have had the most influence on the NME". In 2003, four of the band's albums appeared on Rolling Stone's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time".

    [​IMG]

    The band's focus on a guitar, bass, and drum sound and their fusion of 1960s rock and post-punk, were a rejection of the then-popular, synthesiser-based dance-pop. Marr's guitar work, using a Rickenbacker, had a jangle pop sound reminiscent of Roger McGuinn of the Byrds. Morrissey's complex, literate lyrics combined themes about ordinary people with mordant humour.


    They won a significant following and remain cult favourites.
    [​IMG]

    The band broke up in 1987 due to internal tensions
    and have turned down several offers to reunite

    [​IMG]








    "Morrissey has released at least three times more singles
    and albums since they split,
    so if anyone has a top ten of both
    the singer and band I will tally them both up."

    I’ve had an interesting time catching up with Morrissey, he is a fascinating lyricist. I was surprised to learn that The Smiths were only together for 5 years, they accomplished a lot during that short time and I can see why they have a cult following. I’ve compiled two lists and for me I prefer his solo work.


    Morrissey

    1. Interlude (with Siouxsie)
    2. We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful
    3. Speedway
    4. You have killed me
    5. Everyday Is Like Sunday
    6. The Last of the Famous International Playboys
    7. Suedehead
    8. I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris
    9. Hairdresser On Fire
    10.Dagenham Dave


    The Smiths

    1. There Is a Light That Never Goes Out
    2. This Charming Man
    3. Asleep
    4. Panic
    5. The Headmaster Ritual
    6. Well I Wonder
    7. This Night Has Opened My Eyes
    8. Half A Person
    9. How Soon Is Now?
    10.The Boy With The Thorn In His Side

    I didn't realise Morrissey had released The Last of the Famous International Playboys twice and when I was looking at the 2013 reissue I read that Morrissey wanted a picture of him with David Bowie as the single cover.


    But yet, all I can see is someone who looks like Rick Astley with him...

    Everything but the Girl
    lkj.jpg

    Everything but the Girl (sometimes referred to as EBTG) were an English musical duo, formed in Hull in 1982, consisting of lead singer and occasional guitarist Tracey Thorn and guitarist, keyboardist, producer and singer Ben Watt.

    iuuy.jpg

    The duo have also been nominated for MTV, EMA and Ivor Novello Awards and received an award from the BMI for sales of over 3 million in the UK alone.


    They are currently inactive, although vocalist Tracey Thorn hinted that they may perform again someday. They have not performed publicly since 2000.


    Watt and Thorn are also a couple - they are very private about their relationship and personal life. For some time, it was not a publicised fact that they were a couple, or that they had married subsequently.

    I love Spotify, but sometimes it just gets on my fiicking nerves. I've been looking forward to dipping into EBTG and especially checking out the tracks from their Covers EP but alas it's not there, so it's off to YT once again

    This is just amazing



    And these
