This Charming Man

I love what Simon Goddard (author of all things Smiths) says about this song. Basically, he says that when most rock bands are singing "oh baby" "oooh yeah" and other radio-friendly nonsense, out of nowhere comes Morrissey singing "Punctured bicycle on a hillside desolate..."

What an amazing lyricist he is.

  2. I just re-posted this track with my brand new mastering software given to me minutes ago by my wonderful and amazing boyfriend. So... if you already downloaded it, you may want to download the newest version. :)

  3. Thanks for the heads-up! Marzipan looks like he's well over the project already and it's only February.

  5. Dear Janice,

    Many congratulations to you on your ambitious Smiths Project. It is the feat of a true apostle - once it's over you shall officially be anointed Saint Janice of Smithdom. I can only await with intrigue to hear how your angelic tonsils will one day tackle The Draize Train. (The world will forgive you if you skip Golden Lights.)

    Good luck, good vibes and good harmonies!

    Simon Goddard

  6. Dear Simon,
    I am so honored to know you have listened to my covers. I will attempt to make you, The Smiths, and all of their fans proud with the remaining sixty-some tracks. Your Mozipedia has been an invaluable daily reference for me and I can't thank you enough for all that you do!

    Your biggest fan,
    Janice
