I was in my final year of highschool when I got into the smiths, back in 1986. It was a stressfull year and the Smiths spoke to me....well part of me thought they were wankers...but another part related to the lyrics. About 10 years back there was an amusing pisstake of the Smith-a song called '10,000 Morrisey's'.
Anyway, although I have left the teenage angst far behind I still appreciate their music. Certain tracks just take me straight back in time, particularly Charming Man.

The man still is in his teenage angst, even though he turned 40 just a month ago... still creates some nice music, even though he is not the most sympathetic pertson I ever ran in to.....

Yeah, too true. But he is a charming man.

I discovered the smiths during my adolescence (that just recently ended..), and though i dont listen to them as much as i used to or as much as id like to (unfortunatelly, the army takes all my spare time), i still remember the songs that saved my life .
in the right moment, some of those songs can still bring me to tears (aspecially "last night.." or "i know its over").
god bless morrissey.

The Smiths aren't a bad group. It is simply that they are "not my cup of tea". You find me good Jazz, Blues, Clasical and Light classical, and "music of the Broadway theatre" of any country, and then you'll have my interest.

The Smiths have been the greatest band of 20th century (IMHO). They were special and unique, they have saved a lot of teenagers' lives including mine

I found the 'Sweet And Tender Hooligan' single last week. I paid $6 for four songs, but of course, those songs are worth more than that.
Specially 'I Keem Mine Hidden'.

I paid 30 euros (appr. 40 dollar) once for a record that I already have, just because this was a very rare vynil. So I don't believe 6 dollars is too much for a record with good music.........

If you don't like The Smiths then there actually must be something wrong with you.
That is all.

I owe quite alot to the Morrissey (well up to the first half of The Queen is Dead).
But by god his solo stuff is dogshit.

"But by god his solo stuff is dogshit."
that's sinful. his solo stuff is amazing.

His earlier Solo stuff (Up to and including Your Arsenal) is great. It goes a bit wonky after that.
Everyday Is Like Sunday is better than some (not many) Smiths songs imo.

Morrissey is an artist...there are only so many artists left in this world. He is also one of the few to do well solo.
