A post for the music blog that was never written.
I seem to be reliving my love for The Smiths and Morrissey these days. I find myself recalling more of my past as it gets further and further away from me. We do that when we get older. Don’t we? I do this with music.
This YouTube video of Morrissey’s “Sister I’m a Poet” is from his promotional video “Hulmerist”. I use to own it along with his two solo albums (at the time) and every album The Smiths ever recorded (as well as a rare import LP of “Hatful of Hollow”). I got rid of it all many years ago. I thought it was music I had outgrown. Well, it appears I have grown back into it.
When I was in high school, a good friend went to New York to visit family and he came back with a Smith t-shirt for me. It was light blue with an image of the band playing and the words Hatful of Hollow on it. I loved that shirt! I wish I still had it.
I am now on a quest to reclaim some music I once loved and revisit my fondness for Mr. Steven Patrick Morrissey and The Smiths, and reminisce about my days when I wore that Smith t-shirt with a cardigan (see the end of the video).
Wish me luck. Oh and wish me a happy birthday, but not an unhappy birthday. 😀
Moi in 1988.
