The Smiths/Morrissey Appreciation Thread

I love The Smiths and Morrissey. The man is a legend! I am going to see him for the first time on the 30th July this year, can't wait! Any other fans on the forum? What are you favourite songs/thoughts on both?

Re: The Smiths/Morrissey Appreciation Thread

Any band that have a song with a children´s choir singing "Hang the dj, hang the dj, hang the dj" deserves some respect. Panic is one of my alltime favourite songs, and it´s just as relevant today as in the mid 80´s, with all the mass produced plastic crap music that´s on the charts/radio/tv.



I have never really listened to Morrissey´s solo stuff but i like The Smiths a lot.

I love Panic! I can't get enough of Asleep at the minute...this song is so haunting.

Re: The Smiths/Morrissey Appreciation Thread

Love the best Smiths stuff and the early Morrissey solo stuff.

There is a light that never goes out is the standout Smiths song for me, Suedehead and Everyday is like Sunday for Morrissey's solo stuff

Though I still love that music...I gradually went off Morrissey as a person. I prefer Johnny Marr.

Re: The Smiths/Morrissey Appreciation Thread

Morrissey isn't my favorite person either, but it's about the music. Love Johnny Marr.

Re: The Smiths/Morrissey Appreciation Thread

My ex left behind/gave me a few Smiths CDs but I've never listened to them. Maybe I will one of these days.

Re: The Smiths/Morrissey Appreciation Thread

I don't appreciate Morrissey, but the Smiths was a fantastic band. "Reel Around the Fountain" is probably my favorite music by them.

I hope you enjoy the concert.

Re: The Smiths/Morrissey Appreciation Thread

The Smiths are one of my favourite bands. Not as keen on Morrissey's solo stuff and I would agree he isn't my favourite person!

Johnny Marr is a legend. He is now in a band called The Cribs, who I also think are fantastic

Could that have something to do with the football teams they support?

I love the Smiths they were the best band of the 80s IMO. I like the first 2 albums but I love The Queen is Dead and Strangeways Here We Come. Some favourite songs: Reel Around The Fountain, This Charming Man, How Soon Is Now, That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore, The Boy With The Thorn In His Side, Panic, There Is A Light That Never Goes Out and Death Of A Disco Dancer.

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur, Jarmila Wolfe.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze


Will my weakness for an hour, make me suffer for a life time?

Re: The Smiths/Morrissey Appreciation Thread

I've never really been a massive fan of The Smiths, but I quite like a couple of bands that were influenced by them (Gene and Echobelly), I'm not sure why. Maybe I've just never given them that much listening time.

I really like 'Irish Blood, English Heart', which is a Morrissey one.
