We start the week with this track from Kill Uncle - what do we think of it?
Criminally underrated. Deep, dark and ominous arrangement and a lyric that really hits home. Sure, it’s not one of his best songs, not by a long shot, but it’s still very good and I’ve always liked it. Another one I don’t get the criticism for.
Always thought this one was quite unique and special. The mood is so strange, dark and dramatic while the lyrics are sweet and kind of hopeful. I love the yearning in his voice. The "All the time..." at the end is...
Cracking bass too.
And all this as the result of Morrissey asking Langer to "write me a punk song"
Very odd placing in the tracklist as opener to side 2 of the record.
The Michael Stipe connection is false apparently.
"A daft rumour that its real subject is Michael Stipe stems from a 1991 interview with Select magazine: Morrissey discussed ‘Found Found Found’ in one breath before next answering answering a different (unrelated) question about his friendship with the R.E.M. singer." (Mozipedia)
Of course not, but if the origin of the rumour was really the incorrect interpretation of an interview, why would the song be about Stipe? There's nothing in the lyrics to indicate that. Stipe said he didn't know the song.False or not; does anyone truly believe that Moz would admit anything like that about Stipe?
