Recorded as the relationship between Morrissey and Johnny Marr was beginning to splinter, Strangeways, Here We Come is the most carefully considered and elaborately produced album in the group's catalog.

Not widely considered to be the band's best but it does contain their biggest hit, "How Soon Is Now?". MIM contains the perfect mix of Smiths' style songs including both fast and slow, fun and political. I remember back in the 80's when 'Spin Magazine' had "How Soon Is Now?" ranked as the best single of all time. I also remember thinking, "You know, that isn't even one of my favorite Smiths' songs." Actually not even my fave from this album. To me HSIN had great lyrics and a cool sound but was generally not very Smiths-like. The song lacked the rawness and edge of their other material due to its high-gloss production... precisely NOT the point of the band. Still it's a wonderful song with a catchy, highly original melody and Mozz' sharp wit.

don't think twice

One of my favourite The Smiths songs "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore" a single from their 1985 album "Meat Is Murder".

the writer

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's too close to home
And it's too near the bone
It's too close to home
And it's too near the bone
More than you'll ever know ...

Kick them when they fall down
Kick them when they fall down
You kick them when they fall down
Kick them when they fall down
You kick them when they fall down
Kick them when they fall down
You kick them when they fall down
Kick them when they fall down

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

I've seen this happen in other people's
And now it's happening in mine

Após o primeiro album, por muitos considerado o melhor dos The Smiths, a imprensa musical inglesa aguardava ansiosamente a edição do segundo, sempre na expectativa de que fosse um fiasco.

“Meat Is Murder”, embora um grande disco, não correspondeu às expectativas.

No entanto, continha aquela que, em minha opinião, é a mais bela canção deles.

“There Is A Light… …” estava programada para ser o single a editar do álbum “The Queen Is Dead”, mas Geoff Travis, patrão da Rough Trade, escolheu “Bigmouth Strikes Again”.
Após estes anos, esta é a canção de culto desse mesmo disco, a qual mereceu variadíssimas versões.
A capa é da edição em cd, de 1992, com a foto de Sandie Shaw.

Retirado do My Old Kentucky Blog, o original dos The Smiths e a versão dos australianos The Lucksmiths, uma das melhores bandas do momento, gravada para a compilação da Matinée, “Romantic And Square Is Hip And Aware”.
