My trip has completely rekindled my passion. It has quickly turned into a feverish crazy, which has also caused me to become obsessed with eBay. I am particularly obsessed with finding Smiths albums, but I’m pretty sure that I’ll have better luck convincing Marr and Moz to get back together and record some new songs.
The Smiths – A Rush and a Push and the Land Is Ours
My first Smiths album was Strangeaways, Here We Come. I bought a cassette copy of it from the previously mentioned record store. It was only fitting that my first Smiths vinyl would be the same. I could come up with some pretentious, long-winded reason why I love this song so much, but really it’s all about the growl. My love is simple like that.
On my first website, I wrote an ode to Morrissey and The Smiths with particular emphasis on this song. It actually got me my first weirdo, internet stalker email proposal.
The Cure – Let’s Go To Bed
The Vapors – Spring Collection
I would play this album constantly. I was obsessed with their accents and the idea of that cool British world where they lived. I particularly loved this song because he talks about blue hair and in my pinnacle of coolness, I had just dyed my hair blue. Probably not the most positive song to associate with myself, but whatever.
