“… you and me,
“we can ride on a star
“If you stay with me, girl
“We can rule the world”
Take that. Dross. Implerialistic dross.
The Smiths were such a breath of fresh air when they arrived in 1983. Big fans of pop, but discerning. Morrissey well read (see the “England is mine” movie); Johnny Marr highly-skilled on guitar. Deliberating choosing a plain name for their band.
For the BBC Radio Nottm show wanting to know about songs that change your lives, “Rubber Ring” even has the lyric. But the track I’ve chosen is –
“Girl Afraid”, The Smiths.
Nice jangling; and just listen to the lyrics.
And value difference.
