I really hate that song
Interminable, with self-pitying, cringey lyrics and delivery, over a one-trick pony of a cool guitar effect. It's everything I hate in music like this. I used to like it a lot but it hasn't borne the years well.
I guess the Smiths are a little like Depeche Mode, with some great music but which it's no use trying to get into when you're out of high school (if you're not already a fan), just without the dance remixes.
