I always like it when blogs break away from their core mission to post some purely random piece of music one day a week. So, in that spirit, and as I'm Morecambe and it's Sunday, here's Every Day is Like Sunday by Morrissey.
When Morrissey sings of "the coastal town/That they forgot to close down" where "Every day is silent and grey", he is, of course, talking about Blackpool.
Morrissey will be one of these songwriters who will only receive his recognition when he's lying in a grave. A true poet who refuses to simply be "that man from The Smiths" and I believe he's one of the few left who truly speak their mind. This is quite unlike the modern singer who would sign a deal to stay quiet and simply "smile" for the cameras. If a modern singer dares to have a view then they face being thrown off their record label and this is exactly what has happened to Morrissey in the past month. I doubt this will end his career though. He'll be back.ReplyDelete
