Walkman? Boy, that was a long time ago.

I remember you drew a picture of that lyric in highschool. Do you still have it?

Skylers Dad said...

That was just great!

GkL,

On more current versions Morrissey substitutes "iPod." The first time I heard that it was kind of funny, but now it just makes me like the original more.

J,

Look at the memory on you! I will have to dig that up and scan it. I also have one for "Ask."


Sky Dad,

Glad you liked it.

God bless the Smiths. Although I really hate that weird vocal effect on that song, where it sounds like the Chipmunks are doing backing vocals.

Grant Miller said...

He really says "iPod" when he does it live nowdays?

Oh dear.

I hate it when my former icons become old.

Just for that, he's devoting "You're the One for Me, Fatty" to you next week.

Evil Genius said...

Just as long as no one around here is on the receiving end of a "The World is Full of Crashing Bores" dedication.

Grant Miller said...

The funniest Post-Smiths Morrissey title: "I Have Forgiven Jesus."

Flannery Alden said...

This is my favorite Smiths lyric.

Flann, please see my new post above.
