Another song of the day!!??

I am on a roll today.

This gem is by none other than The Smiths - Bigmouth Strikes Again.

As someone once said, if you wrote a short list of all the hugely influential bands from the 1980's, then crossed out all the ones that were shit, you'd be left with one band: The Smiths.

The money shot for this song is the lyrics, for example...

"and now I know how joan of arc felt,
as the flames rose, to her roman nose,
and her walkman started to melt"

well, that plus Johnny Marr's unbelievable guitar as always.

Until the next time, and who knows when that might be?

Your friend,

Buford Twain
