The other being Unlovable. Cheers.
can't imagine how anyone could think that, especially you.
not just that you're saying their best song is bad, but you're saying so many other terrible songs are not only good, but better than...what?
There's absolutely no way this is their best song. It's not even up there with their best. Especially compared to how strong some of the rest of the debut is (their worst album).
why fight popular and critical consensus? even Royer agrees. I think that seals it, tbh, tbf.
But yeah, worse than Unlovable, fair point.
is a great song.
tell me what you think, everyone, because when I posted this in that 90s songs thread, everybody was, like, *...*, i.e. nobody replied or anything.
and been meaning to give Halo Benders a listen. Might take some time to get into Calvin's voice.
Also love Doug Martsch's cover of Reel Around The Fountain
I love the organ and bit of piano on the album version. Pretty brave song to open a debut album with, actually.
but would be better to close their debut album. Their first album should be a classic but fails due to poor production and unthought out track listing.
yeah its definitely my favourite of theirs. Sounds so properly hopeless, love songs like that
one of my favourite smiths songs
...the worst being:
Vicar in a Tutu
Death at One's Elbow
so that therapy's working for you then?
This and Well I Wonder, Half a Person and There is a Light is really all I need. Perhaps This night has opened my eyes, too.
Still remember the first time I heard the Smiths, in the attic of a friends garage drunk in front of a little crap CD player. Seminal stuff.
is so so good. haunting but lovely. always remember a time on my year abroad, walking through the snow on my own listening to it. feeling all lonely and thoughtful. proper embarrassing cliched smiths moment but kinda love them for just that kind of thing.
i also always seem to connect i won't share you with it for some reason. fucking love them both.
