The Smiths – There is a light that never goes out

I mean, everything is awful right now, isn’t it. Like just pretty much everything. But we still have music, so maybe we’ll be okay.

  1. That whole album is so amazing.

    It’s actually the only album I’ve heard by the Smiths, but it’s great all the way through. Big Mouth Strikes Ahain. Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others. Yeah.

    It’s striking how this song in particular influenced “Ok Computer”-era Radiohead. I’m not sure that Thom Yorke ever would have sang a line like “This is what you get when you mess with us” in such an incongruously smooth and beautiful way if it weren’t for the “double decker bus” line in this song.
