What song

All about The Smiths' music, gigs, stories, anything.

The very first song I heard was Panic, which I thought was good, but I was taken by How Soon Is Now? which came second. By the time I heard There Is a Light That Never Goes Out shortly after, I knew that there was absolutely no turning back.

For me, it was I Started Something - I was sitting in the sofa, watching the video, when realised there was something about The Smiths, that this band is different and very special.

definitely, There is a light that never goes out.
it was perfect -- nice bassline, nice music, moz sang it perfectly, and the lyrics was bloomin brilliant;

"and if a double decker bus crashes into us.. to die by yr side is such a heavenly to die
and if a 10 ton truck kills the both of us, to die by your side, well the pleasure the privilege is mine"

it's not often you find a song that could be so sad, funny and romantic in the same time..

I was in college back in 1986 and my teammate on the university soccer team loaned me his cassette tape of TQID. The Boy With The Thorn In His Side was the song that stood out from a song sound stand point. It just flowed with all 4 parts (voice, bass, drum & guitar) in perfect harmony. Then I read the words to I Know It's Over, and I was hooked. Though I was not even close to being down during this time, that song struck me because I realized that others probably felt like they aren't alive (just going through the motions). The line 'Oh mother I can feel, the soil falling over my head" is unbelievable and can be used not just about death of a person, but death of an emotion, hunger, pain, joy...

There is a light that never goes out. My sister played that for me when I was 16 years old
