So I think the Smiths maybe the best band ever, not really but hotdamn that Morrissey can write. I'm now going to quote all my favorite smiths lyrics.
Spending warm, Summer days indoors, writing frightening verse to a buck-toothed girl in Luxemburg.
I don't dream about anyone except myself.
If you think peace is a common goal that goes to show how little you know.
I wear black on the outside cause black is how I feel on the inside.
I thought that if you had an acoustic guitar then it meant that you were a protest singer, oh I can smile about it now but at the time it was terrible.
Burn down the disco hang the blessed DJ, because the music that they constantly play its says nothing to me about my life.
I could have been wild and I could have been free but Nature played this trick on me.
She wants it now and she will not wait but she's too rough and I'm too delicate.
When I'm lying in my bed I think about life and I think about death and neither one particularly appeals to me.
So, I broke into the palace with a sponge and a rusty spanner she said, "I know you, and you cannot sing" I said "that's nothing you should hear me play piano."
I was looking for a job, and then I found a job and heaven knows I'm miserable now.
I look at yours, you laugh at mine and "love" is just a miserable lie.
I've seen you smile but I never really heard you laugh.
So we go inside and we gravely read the stones all those people all those lives where are they now? With the loves and hates and passions just like mine they were born and then they lived and then they died seems so unfair and I want to cry.
I know it's over, and it never really began but in my heart it was so real.
Love is natural and real.
I danced my legs down to the knees but me and my true love will never meet again.
Sweetness, sweetness I was only joking when I said I'd like to smash every tooth in your head
It's so easy to laugh, it's so easy to hate it takes strength to be gentle and kind.
Does the body rule the mind or does the mind rule the body? I don't know.
Sixteen, clumsy and shy that's the story of my life.
Fame, fame, fatal fame it can play hideous tricks on the brain but still I rather be famous than righteous or holy, any day, any day, any day. But sometimes I'd feel more fulfilled making Christmas cards with the mentally ill I want to live and I want to love I want to catch something that I might be ashamed of.
She said "In the days when you were hopelessly poor I just liked you more"
I was delayed, I was way-laid, an emergency stop I smelt the last ten seconds of life I crashed down on the crossbar and the pain was enough to make a shy, bald, buddhist reflect and plan a mass murder.
Oh, so I drank one, it became four and when I fell on the floor I drank more.
Nothing's changed I still love you, oh, I still love you only slightly, only slightly less than I used to, my love.
If you ever need self-validation just meet me in the alley by the railway station it's written all over my face.
Gasping but somehow still alive this is the fierce last stand of all I am.
Last night I felt real arms around me no hope, no harm just another false alarm.
Because if it's not Love then it's the Bomb that will bring us together
Nature is a language can't you read?
I went to London and I, I booked myself in at the Y.W.C.A I said "I like it here can I stay?, I like it here can I stay? and, do you have a vacancy for a Back-scrubber?"
Haven't had a dream in a long time see, the life I've had can make a good man bad. So for once in my life let me get what I want, lord knows it would be the first time.
I had a really bad dream it lasted 20 years, 7 months, and 27 days.
"there's too much caffeine in your blood stream and a lack of real spice in your life" I said "leave me alone because I'm alright, dad just surprised to still be on my own."
People who are weaker than you and I they take what they want from life.
Hand in glove, the good people laugh, yes we may be hidden by rags, but we've something they'll never have.
I am human and I need to be loved just like everybody else does.
I decree today that life is simply taking and not giving, England is mine and it owes me a living.
Oh, the alcoholic afternoons when we sat in your room they meant more to me than any living thing on Earth they had more worth than any living thing on Earth.
She said "I smoke cause I'm hoping for a nearly death and I need to cling to something."
Park the car at the side of the road you should know time's tide will smother you and I will too, when you laugh about people who feel so very lonely their only desire is to die well I'm afraid it doesn't make me smile I wish I could laugh but that joke isn't funny anymore.
It was dark as I drove the point home and on cold leather seats well, it suddenly struck me I just might die with a smile on my face after all.
And if a double-decker bus crashes into us to die by your side is such a heavenly way to die and if a ten ton truck kills the both of us to die by your side, well the pleasure, the privilege is mine.
A dreaded sunny day so i'll meet you at the cemetery gates Keats and Yeats are on your side while Wilde is on mine.
and my favorite...
Fifteen minutes with you oh I wouldn't say no, oh people see no worth in you I do, oh I do. I dreamt about you last night and I fell out of bed twice, you can pin and mount me like a butterfly. Take me to the haven of your bed was something that you never said, two lumps please, you're the bee's knees but so am I.

News is that Marr and Morrissey have stopped fighting enough to talk about re-releasing the Smiths catalog
Playing classic alternative, new wave, punk, etc, taking requests all day

I'm scared to touch some of those Morrissey bootlegs. If it wasn't good enough for Kill Uncle then I really can't imagine how bad it must be, but more Smiths is always good. I can't wait to listen to the peel sessions.
