Yeah me too.I could listen to The Smiths if they did`nt have MorrisseyApril 2, 2009 at 12:49 pm #134450
I’ve really tried to like the Smiths, I really have.
Some friends think they’re absolutely fantastic, friends that I like and respect a lot, so I’ve tried but it’s just not happening.
I get pissed off by listening to a Smiths album.April 2, 2009 at 2:04 pm #134451
I love the Smiths! Louder Than Bombs is a terrific album which I can admit to listening to almost to a psychotic degree. And the album ends with Asleep which makes me want to cry and jump off a bridge.
Nirvana ~ Bleach Shut up and go to hell if you don’t like this album.April 2, 2009 at 2:29 pm #134452
Oi, no need to get all defensive for liking Bleach
There’s probably 37 great albums from the 80’s that I forgot to mention in my posts, that doesn’t mean I think you’re mrs smelly pants for mentioning them.
Can you teach me how to like the smiths ?April 2, 2009 at 2:33 pm #134453"Robert" wrote:Can you teach me how to like the smiths ?
No. Morrissey has forbidden me from speaking to non-believers.April 2, 2009 at 2:35 pm #134454
I see. Another of girls crushes.April 2, 2009 at 2:45 pm #134455
Oh my, I just looked up what the #1 song on the charts was on the day of my birthday and it was Maneater by Hall and Oats.
Ps. Shut up, Robert.
Love, MorrisseyApril 2, 2009 at 2:46 pm #134456
Where ? I wanna do that too !
Plus, you know I won’t.April 2, 2009 at 2:51 pm #134457
But I’m not sure it goes back as far as 1927April 2, 2009 at 2:55 pm #134458
Though I’ve never heard of the song or group that was #1 on my birthday
The joke’s on you, because I goes all the way to 1890. So there !April 2, 2009 at 3:08 pm #134459
Curse! Foiled again!
Oh no! Now I can’t get Maneater out of my head! Do you think my mom and dad rocking out to that song on the day I was born in any way affected my life?April 2, 2009 at 3:16 pm #134460"girl" wrote:Oh no! Now I can’t get Maneater out of my head!

It probably made you everything you are today. You’re more or less ruled by that song, or so it would seem.
