The song, about a brief fling that leads to an unwelcome obsession, wound up charting higher than any song The Smiths ever released, and higher than any song Morrissey would ever release as a solo artist.
‘Will Never Marry’ is a Morrissey track culled from Bona Drag, a collection of hits and b-sides from his early solo career. This track was initially released as a b-side of ‘Everyday is Like Sunday,’ one of Morrissey’s biggest hits.
This is a typically melancholy Morrissey sentiment with moody music to match. I love it.
Morrissey’s sound, both solo and with The Smiths, is so distinct. Plenty of bands have imitated, or drawn inspiration from, that sound but nobody has done it as well.
