This Charming Bowie

Welcome to this knockabout world
It’s hard to really add anything to the table for this mind blowing song. After “I’m Not A Man”, this is my favourite Morrissey song. The guitars are thick and chiming, the lyrics are detailed to the point of vivid realisation and the vocals move from hushed to triumphant. Imagine hearing this for the first time when it came out! Just spectacular, too spectacular for analysis, really.
10/10

I love this song for all of the obvious reasons but also because it inspired one of my all-time favourite headlines in a music mag (Select, I think), for an interview with the American band Eggs: "Loafing Oeufs in All-Night Chemists".

I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.
Number 2 on my list of the greatest ever Morrissey songs. And another extraordinary masterpiece impossible to analyze in a fair way.

I listen to it when I’m glum, because it’s so warm, comforting and strengthening. And I listen to it when I’m feeling good, for most of the same reasons. It’s a remarkable combination of words, music and production, and an amazing example of what can happen when everything and everyone gels.

This is, without doubt, sheer genius; a complete & utter masterpiece....
And I just can't explain, so I won't even try to.
Brilliantissimo.

Another album where the first track is an indicator of the quality as a whole.
It was an excellent choice to open Vauxhall & I with.
The efforts around the single release were a bit paltry, but overall a song I never tire of.

It's soaring, beautiful, and inspiring. I remember hearing it on V&I for the first time and thinking: I don't know what I just heard... but I need to hear it again. The go to live version for me will always be from Introducing Morrissey... he could repeat "so" 1000 times and I wouldn't have heard enough. In fact, I've already replayed the ending from the link above about 10 times already.

Never liked this one. Thought his pal's names were beyond f***ing stupid, and its overly sentimental and corny.

Is there an argument that this should have been the first (or second) single off the album? (I know it's nearly 5 mins long, etc, but that didn't stop "November..." from charting well.)

In tribute, there's a men's barbers, part of The Barber Club, & in one of their branches (Brighton) they have this:

The tribute must be to Moz, as opposed to the film, obviously. :cool:
