We suddenly live in a different world. I've been hanging out in my house with my fam, just homeschooling and figuring out how to navigate our new reality and keep my business/job going. It's tough but we are all doing a variation of this same thing and we are all in it together. In the meantime, maybe posting these songs can give you a tiny break from the madness. Love you all and stay safe! On with the music!
This is still one of my fav Smiths songs. On my version, this is where I started to branch out and away from the doo doo doot background vocals and try to find different ways to make textures and rhythms with voice.

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
What an amazing lyricist he is.
