"Viva Hate"

For all things concerning Moz's solo career.

i dont like dial-a-cliche, but margaret on the guillotine aint bad, because (1) it ends with the sound of the guillotine coming down and i think that sounds cool, and (2) its about mrs thatcher and has a verse going "when will you die?" over and over which is probably what went through a lot of people's heads when she was prime minister <!--emo&:P-->Image<!--endemo-->

I want to hear a special G Dubya version...

Viva Hate is just so-so, the melodies are bland and boring, of course it contains Everyday Is Like Sunday, Suede and Hairdresser On Fire, and that's about it...i prefer Bona Drag and Vauxhall & I...

I am listening to Bengali in Platforms and I think this is one of my favourite tracks of this album.

I agree with Pash, Bengali is quite rude.

As a whole album it is not my favourite, however I think it's got a lot of my favourite Morrissey single songs on. And it's probably my third or fourth favourite so. :)

Edit: and oh yes Banglai is rather rude. :angry:

Everyone seems to have forgotten 'Girl Least Likely To' - this is excellent.
Andy Rourke composed it, so I believe.

I think I might like viva hate more than strangeways and meat is murder. It's the only morrissey record that ever has and probably ever will approach the greatness of the smiths. Stephen Street does a fantastic job of imitating Marr on Suedehead, probably the closest thing to the smiths morrissey's done. The first 7 songs are utterly fantastic. Never was a fan of break up the family or the ordinary boys. Otherwise, fantastic fucking album.

I sorta agree...but 7 songs are only half of Viva Hate...so I would call it half a great album, it's not bad, but I just prefer Bona Drag...

Well, Bona Drag is a compilation. But I must add that I think that Viva Hate is a great album, entirelly.

I think Viva Hate is a great album and I keep coming back to it...
What WAS Moz thinking with Bengali in Platforms ?..I can only try to understand it from the angle that Moz is so cynical and down about life in England for native born English (life's hard enough when you belong here, Come Armageddon Come) that he's kind of sad to see people leaving their own culture where they may have had some kind of sense of belonging..to go half way round the world in search of a better life which Thatcher's Britain doesn't offer..where nothing happens and every day is like Sunday. He's kind of saying..."Why would you bother...?" Didn't Thatcher say "there's no such thing as society?" So that's how I try to read Moz's lyric here..because I dont believe that Moz would be deliberately nasty or mean

I love hairdresser on fire..it makes me smile everytime its so funny, Late Night maudlin St is inspired, I also really like songs like Suedehead, Ordinary Boys (But you were so different, you stood on your own, and you knew that it had to be so...), and Dial a cliche.

Bernie, that's exactly the way I feel about Bengali's lyrics, and that's why I love it. On the other hand, I find it really funny, you know, like I Will See You In Far Off Places.
