Today is the 37th anniversary of The Smiths’ debut self-titled album. I hated The Smiths when I first heard them. But, I have grown to love them, regardless of Morrissey’s self-loathing disposition. This song wasn’t on the UK version of the vinyl album. It was on the US version and world-wide on cassette and I am guessing CDs. This guy nails it (he’s a fan, he does several Smiths covers). Enjoy!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“Punctured bicycle on a hillside desolate. Will Nature make a man of me yet? When in this charming car, this charming man. Why pamper life’s complexity, when the leather runs smooth on the passenger seat? I would go out tonight but I haven’t got a stitch to wear. This man said, “It’s gruesome that someone so handsome should care.” – “This Charming Man” (Marr/Morrissey)
