People Need to Listen to the Smiths

   26 August 2004, the wee hours

I’m a big fan of The Smiths. I think they are probably one of the best bands ever. Well, at the very least they had a great guitarist and a great songwriter/singer. One of my favourite songs by them is Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want:

Good times for a change
See, the luck I’ve had
Can make a good man
Turn bad

So please please please
Let me, let me, let me
Let me get what I want
This time

Haven’t had a dream in a long time
See, the life I’ve had
Can make a good man bad

So for once in my life
Let me get what I want
Lord knows, it would be the first time
Lord knows, it would be the first time

If you haven’t heard anything by the Smiths you are really missing out.



  1. Something beautiful in just under two minutes… man I love this song!

  2. If you liked this song, you should check out This Charming Man, This Night Has Opened My Eyes, and Back to the Old House. They are all quite excellent.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
