The Smiths Lyric of the Week

"And in the darkened underpass
I thought 'Oh God, my chance has come at last'
(But then a strange fear gripped me and I
Just couldn't ask.) "

-There is a Light That Never Goes Out

I always liked this part of that song:

And if a double-decker bus
Crashes into us
To die by your side
Is such a heavenly way to die
And if a ten-ton truck
Kills the both of us
To die by your side
Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine

He's singing so upbeat, and I truly believe him when he says the pleasure -- the privilege is mine.

No matter what I would have said, cardiogirl said something better, so ditto that!

How I love me some Smiths.

Beth said...

When is Moz gonna find your blog and reciprocate the worshipping?

Falwless said...

I'm pretty sure I wrote that lyric.

Evil Genius said...

Cardio: Too obvious, but too true.

Fran: Agreed. Please ensure you coordinate all future comments with her as well.

Beth: According to my Sitemeter, as soon as he Googles "Julie Andrews topless."

Falwless: Then hand me the pillow, the one that you dream on.

JB: You missed it! It was September 19, 2007. Which was followed by something I had lying around from my high school sketchbook a few days later.

Whiskeymarie said...

Just for you, I'm listening to this album as I type. I wrote the passage cardiogirl mentioned on all of my brown-paper covered books in high school.

"Oh god, my chance has come at last..." Breaks my heart a little every time.

Evil Genius said...

Whiskey: This may sound odd, but I dreamt about you last night...and I fell out of bed twice.

No offense to minijonb, but IN your FACE, dude. I LOVE that Evil Genius can reference September 19, 2007.

Game, match, set, baby!

And it truly is a bitchin' lyric. I like how he enunciates "Roman nose."

It was just a gentle reminder as JB had already commented on the follow-up post. Which, if you are interested, wound up as a tee shirt at the Rock and Roll Astronaut Store.
