I'm 21...and I'm another person from Sydney.

Some of my friends recommended the Smiths, and a few months ago I picked up Hatful of Hollow, but I just didn't bother to give it a decent time to listen to.

However I was listening on the train home one day, and then I said to myself "Oh fuck...his singing about me!" and the rest they say is history...

my favs:
William, it was really nothing
How Soon is now
Heaven Knows I'm miserable now
This night has opened my eyes
You've got everything now
Hand in Glove
This Charming Man

Been addicted to The Smiths for the past month and I don't think it will end.

I now believe other bands just aren't saying enough to us about OUR lives. This is where The Smiths have succeeded. They are definitely up there.

Heaven knows I'm miserable now
I was looking for a job, and then I found a job
And heaven knows I'm miserable now

You've got everything now:
No, I've never had a job Because I've never wanted one
No, I've never had a job Because I'm too shy

agreed! :D

your post reminded me of another smiths song, "panic"...
burn down the disco
hang the blessed DJ
because the music that they constantly play
says nothing to me about my life

But you have discovered them now - and still have so much to discover, so much to delight in! :D
