Hot off Morrissey’s new album, Ringleader of the Tormentors, this song just further proves Morrissey has not lost a bit of his touch. This is really reflecting his song career in the early 90s, and I’m glad to hear a song like this. The vocals are very top-notch, and the twinkles in the background are great. Typical fun Morrissey lyrics: “I see the world, it makes me puke, but then I look at you and I know that somewhere there is someone that can soothe me. To me you are a work of art, and I would give you my heart, that’s if I had one.” And when he says ‘had’, well, you know what Moz does when he wants to exaggerate a word. Top notch stuff from him, and upon preview of the album, it appears to be outstanding.
Live in San Francisco on 11/5/05, it is my favorite Vanderslice song sung live. It’s a great pop song, and his live rendition is great. He is a well credited solo artist, and sometimes solo producer (Spoon’s Gimme Fiction). ‘Angela’ is off his 2005 album, Pixel Revolt. Other songs I recommend off the MP3 link below are ‘Dear Sarah Shu’ and ‘Exodus Damage’.
