Which "smith" are you most like?

Anything you wanna say, say it!

Which smith are you most like?
You have to give at least 5 pieces of evidence resembling you as them.

I will start:

Mike Joyce

* I play drums
* One of my favorite shows is the young ones
* My most valueable posession is my drum kit as is his
* My favorite animal is a cat
* I hate platform shoes

I was helped by the meat is murder program off "Foreverill".

Or you could justify why you are like the smiths, you can name two band members or 3 or 4.

I'd obviously be Our Johnny...

Guitar Wizard
Kind of veggie
Fairly hyper
Good songwriter
Intelligent, but not obviously.

The main differences being - I write better lyrics than him, and he's better looking than me. Ah well, can't have everything.

Wow that's egotistical/vain/smug.

What a great thread!
I have to respond to all of the posts so far. They're funny and all so clever:

Guitar wizard
fairly hyper (he he!)
Intelligent, but not obviously

and,
fickle,
I hate alot of things and people (sometimes I'm right with ya)

and,
I have a soft spot for Mike Joyce. The unsung hero, in my book. Since I had the wonderful experience of talking to him once I can honestly say he is nice and is quite engaging in conversation. Anyone listened to any of his interviews? (Best interview is in a bootleg edition of the Importance of Being Morrissey.) Quite an extrovert for a drummer. I once mentioned I'd be a drummer in another life. It's amazing how many drum parts I've got memorized without thinking about it. Lucky you, miserableliar. It's all David Robinson's fault (the Cars, former Modern Lovers) drummer. I had a big crush on him when they first hit the scene oh so long ago.

Me, I'll have to ponder this one.

Aaah ditto here!! I think that I also share extreme social awkwardness and extreme seriousness with the Moz and stubborness, like I am who I am and I like what I like and I don't find change easy.

I am very drawn to the drums too in an equally curious way never ever been near a set in me life but I am always aware and drawn to the drum beat... v strange.
Plus I've seen a few recent Mike interviews (young guns and these things take time) and he does seem like the nicest one out of them all - very straightforward and ordinary and normal and quite uncomplicated... Moz would be the other extreme I think!!

I love all of the smiths I think as I also have an odd soft spot for Andy Rourke too in a curious way I've seen recent interviews and I think that he seems just shy,quiet and spaced in an adorable fashion (there's a kid I know who is really shy like that and it's gorgeous.

And obviously I love Johnny!! I'll have to think about exactly why...

Yeah, Mike Joyce does seem to be like a really nice guy, in the Q Special Edition Stephen Wright (I think) said how Mike would always hang around and talk to the fans, and there's a photo of him signing all their stuff. He just seems like a really nice guy.

Um, I don't really know which one I'd be most like, my hair has decided to turn reasonably Johnny Marr-ish at the moment, and it's black now too, which only adds to the resemblance, but I'd be inclined to go for Morrissey, mainly based on music taste:

-I love glam-era Bowie, T.Rex and Roxy Music (who you could compare to New York Dolls... maybe.)
-I also love Oscar Wilde, and had done for years before getting into The Smiths.
-Can't play the guitar to save my life but dabble a bit with lyrics and so on.
-I often prefer being on my own.
-I like cheese sandwiches.

I decree today that life is simply taking and not giving
England is mine, it owes me a living
But ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
Oh, ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
But we cannot cling to the old dreams anymore
No, we cannot cling to those dreams
Does the body rule the mind or does the mind rule the body?
I dunno...
Under the iron bridge we kissed
And although I ended up with sore lips
It just wasn't like the old days anymore
No, it wasn't like those days
Am I still ill...?

I am Morrissey, definitely.

* I write poetry on frequent basis
* I am vegetarian since a young age
* I am celibate ( :( )
* I grew up spending my time indoors reading books instead of socialising with other kids
* I have often experienced social isolation, gloom and being misunderstood (AS)
* I am intelligent (proven fact, as I did an IQ test :lol: )
* I emigrated out of my native country

I think I'm most like Morrissey.
*I prefer novels to people and like many Smiths fans, I've spent much of my life indoors acquainting myself with the written word rather than other people.
*I blush rather easily (I remember reading something about Mozzer being quite the blusher in his younger days.)
*I’ve always lacked in social skills and probably always will.
*The "type" I'm usually attracted to will have nothing to do with me, and the "type" that seems to like me, I abhor. (Moz complained about this in the past, hasn’t he?)
*I wont vote conservative, because I never have :P
*I express myself best via writing...poetry, etc.
*I hate pop stars.
Oh, but don't mention love
I'd hate the pain of the strain all over again
A rush and a push and the land that
We stand on is ours
It has been before
So why can't it be now?
And people who are weaker than you or I
They take what they want from life
