B Side: Jeane
Right-click this link to download the mp3
This is one of a few Smiths songs that never made it to an album or compilation. Since the lyrics are about the realization and acceptance of a failed relationship, I wanted to give it a bittersweet quality as if the love is there, it's just all mixed up in emotions. Who knows, acknowledging a failure can lead to new beginnings... so actually, maybe this song can be seen as a positive thing?
I'm headed to LA tomorrow for the Sweet and Tender Hooligans "Unhappy Birthday" concerts and I hope to see you there. I'll put some pictures on the blog and see if anyone can take videos of my performances.

Plus, I am in musical cahoots with some awesome people in LA so there will be exciting surprises on this blog in the next few weeks!
