I'm 16 and I love The Smiths! I enjoy writing poetry and was drawn to Morrissey's lyrics (especially "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" and "I Know It's Over") <!--emo&^_^-->Image<!--endemo-->

Indeed, welcome here and do tell us more about yourself. If you'd like, naturally.

xactly.

and babies wouldn't like mozart. i mean, seriously, if we put some weird age rule on things where young people can't like old stuff, that would necessarily imply that babies would only like the newest of the newest.

but babies and green day,....hhhmmm.... <!--emo&:P-->Image<!--endemo-->

i liked mozart when i was a baby (and i still do)! its stupid how some people seem to think certain music is for certain age groups (e.g. kids are only allowed pop fluff and cant have proper music til theyre grown up, middle aged people have to buy the sort of records u get in supermarkets, old people cant like modern music, etc.), im glad theres none of those prejudices on this board. we have quite a range of ages here <!--emo&:)-->Image<!--endemo-->

bravo. 100% agree.


the very first conscious memory i have of any music is the beatles. particularly, hey jude. i remember my mother singing along with it on the radio. it came out in 1969 (i think), i did in 1966. <!--emo&:P-->Image<!--endemo-->

i also think another advantage to this board (other than the age range) is the meager sampling of cultures/nations we have, too.

Age is such a relative concept - and music is eternal.... <!--emo&:P-->Image<!--endemo-->

I would have hated the Smiths at fourteen. I'm glad I got into them at the time I was ready for them - 17. I'm 20 now.

I grew up listening to the Smiths, but then i started really apreciating their music when i was about 15 0r 16, all thanks to my parents! the good thing about this is my dad owned every Smiths vinyl out and so they got passed down to me!

I have a lot I owe to the smiths, especially when it comes to my love life, the reason why me and my ex girlfriend got together was because of the Smiths, and songs such as 'there is a light....' and 'I know its over' really meant something to me *sighs*
Also when i am going through hard times, theres nothing like lying on my bed with the Smiths playing in the background, ironically it really cheers me up (hence the depressing nature of most songs)

i dont think i will ever forget the smiths and will always be the best band i have ever heard..EVER!
