Song of the Day #2,467: ‘Glamorous Glue’ – Morrissey

morrissey_your_arsenalI always sigh when a Morrissey or Smiths song pops up on Random iTunes Weekends, bracing myself for the bashing to come from my regular readers.

I need to find a pocket of Smiths fans to whom I can market the blog on these occasions, so the lovers can drown out the haters.

‘Glamorous Glue’ is a track from Morrissey’s best solo album, 1992’s Your Arsenal. This one of several albums that will always remind me of the year I met my wife.

Of course, she hates The Smiths as well, so it’s not like I can count on her to come to their rescue in the comment section!

First day with the jar, you find
Everyone lies
First day with the jar, you find
Everyone lies, nobody minds

Everyone lies
Where is the man you respect?
And where is the woman you love?
Where’s the woman you love?

Third week with the jar, you find
Everything dies
We won’t vote Conservative
Because we never have

Everyone lies, everyone lies
Where is the man you respect?
And where is the woman you love?
Where’s the woman you love?

Everything of worth
On Earth
Is there
To share

I used to dream, and I used to vow
I wouldn’t dream of it now
We look to Los Angeles
For the language we use
London is dead, London is dead
London is dead, London is dead
London is dead, London is dead
Now I’m too much in love
I’m too much in love…

I know
I’ll go
Empty hand
From the land
