Anybody?

Just read somewhere that their debut album is about child abuse, among other related themes. If so, on which songs?

The Hand that Rocks the Cradle is about paedophilia & Suffer Little Children is about the Moors Murders
Moors murders - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

LASID - The Smiths

For more insight, LASID is awesome

Alright, looked up the Moors murders and it fits perfectly. I read somewhere that Reel Around the Fountain is about paedophilia too, can that be true?

He tried to play San Antonio, but so many skinheads rushed the stage he finally just left.

Etc.

I could go on all day... just a taste.

Okay, fine, if you insist, one more: as this may be the end of this thread:


Etc. Plenty more to choose from...

I really like The Smiths. I like Morrisey's voice and I think he's a great lyricist. Not too bad..

The Smiths are one of my three or four favorite musical artists, but it annoys me when angsty teenagers talk about how much Morrissey's lyrics speak to them. Morrissey's lyrics shouldn't speak to you. They're a great band because they wrote great pop songs.
