Morrissey A-Z: "Drag the River"

Generally speaking I think the quality of the World Peace is None of Your Business bonus tracks is very strong and I only wish that they'd been released during an era when b-sides were still a major thing. A staggered release of non-album tracks was a much more interesting way to discover them than having them all plonked on a special edition.

The softer sections of this track are particularly impressive and I also enjoy the wordy nature of the lyrics. They generally flow very well and fit Morrissey's voice very well.

The louder parts of the music are a little jarring and probably could have been recorded a little better.

In the poll on the Hoffman board it ranked 75th from 264 solo songs.
Good points, all (except I don't really find the louder parts jarring). I looked on Hoffman's board. Found plenty of Morrissey threads but no poll of all his songs. Presumably, as it's not a specialist Smiths/Morrissey forum, the numbers voting would have been much less than the poll here, maybe no more than 10 or so per song?

I think between 10 and 25 depending on the song.

If you type in "Morrissey day" in the search engine you would probably find it.
