exactly! everyone is just happy to accept all this rubbish that the charts are feeding them and all listeing to the same pop chart stuff and i dont see how they dont want to broaden their horizons a little!

its quite annoying though because i only have like 3 friends who actually like the smiths at all so i cant share the love hehe!! <!--emo&:D-->Image<!--endemo-->

I could say you're lucky - 'cause I only have 1 or 2 friends who are kinda "accepting" of The Smiths and I am always told to stop listening to such 'weird stuff' - of course I am always drawn to the stuff considered weird and see it as a privilege to be into something different. <!--emo&;)-->Image<!--endemo--> <!--emo&;)-->Image<!--endemo-->

i do'nt get much abuse thankfully because no one my age has any idea of who they are. i do however get abuse for simply not liking the same genres of music that everyone else does.

only my dad moans at me for liking the smiths. he keeps saynig how miserable a band they are... i guess to a degree he's right regarding the lyrics, but as i pointed out 1) they're not all miserable. he's only picking on heaven knows i'm miserable now, and 2) they're played in an upbeat way!

i love them simply because they're very beautiful and poetic lyrics <!--emo&:)-->Image<!--endemo-->

oh and the music rocks qutie a lot too hehe.

With Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now a lot of people don't seem to get that the lyrics are so miserable it's actually funny. Plus as queen is dead says, it's played in a very upbeat way with lush major sevenths all over the place. Does anyone actually feel miserable after listening to it? I know I don't.

Well, it's not one of my faves, so I don't really listen to it that often, but miserable after hearing it - never <!--emo&:D-->Image<!--endemo-->

Er Heaven Knows I'm Miserable now is hysterical...and wonderfully upbeat...musically and lyrically....

like Morrissey said the immense joy that comes from saying what you feel...in clear honest upfront terms...I love the lyric "in my life why do I waste valuable time with people who don't care if I live or die...."

it was that one line that compelled me smithsward to obsession so to speak....sublime and uplifting and Johnnys music sets me beaming I hate the miserabilism tag Morrissey has made a song for every human emotion pretty much...love, lust, hate sadness. longing...

<!--QuoteBegin--></div><table border='0' align='center' width='95%' cellpadding='3' cellspacing='1'><tr><td>QUOTE </td></tr><tr><td id='QUOTE'><!--QuoteEBegin-->Still, it's difficult when most people your age want to listen to monotonous, unoriginal dance music and have no idea where you're coming from with something as deep as The Smiths. That said, it's amazing when you meet other young people who are huge fans because you kind of feel that amongst all the chaos there's someone who understands a significant part of you, even if only for a fleeting moment.<!--QuoteEnd--></td></tr></table><div class='postcolor'><!--QuoteEEnd-->

I like a bit of monotonous dance meself sometimes....(within reason) i enjoy all forms of music (there is art and talent in it all (sometimes) and so i despise people who are close minded and very definitley reject the smiths cos they're miserable.... or this or that - I'm gonna play my best mate them, the guy who introduced me to them is a twat and he was my only smiths friendly mate....<!--emo&:(-->Image<!--endemo-->

Even the way Morrissey sings in Heaven knows I'm miserable now isn't sad. The only miserable things about it are the title and the lyrics, which obviously don't direct the atmosphere of the song in this case. If someone who couldn't understand english heard it, I bet they would think of it as a happy song, well, not a miserable one anyway.

Hah! My dad used to do exactly the same thing!

In fact when I bought The Queen Is Dead (before I had even heard any Smiths tracks), I asked him if he'd heard of them and he just launched into an off-key rendition of 'Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now'.

yeah! and i have to laugh every time he sings that simply because of the highness of the note! <!--emo&:rolleyes:-->Image<!--endemo--> and that great little tune that follows that line before it goes into the next verse ... it just sounds sarcastic and happy

generally people are either not intrested when i tell them about the smiths but they make the effort to be nice about it around me or they hate morrissy so they proceed to tell me how unbelievably boaring and pessimistic he is.
