HANG THEM HIGH VERONICA
I can't overstate how much I love this song.
Wouldn't be the first or last time that Morrissey likened desire to murder. I'm a little surprised to see how much love the 2004 version is getting, I thought it was consensus opinion that 1992/
Hearing it before it was even released, was a wtf is this?! magical nights in 92.
1995's outing was the definitive version. The Quarry-era is a little stiff for my tastes.
This song always felt sort of rare and mysterious to me, from its relatively lo-fi origins on the b-side of "Certain People I Know" to the dropped final verse to Morrissey's quiet obsession with it. This song is clearly a favorite of his.
With JTRipper and YHHer another favorite of mine, when it first struck me how interesting Boz’s contributions were.Was this Boz's first writing credit? Or was that "You've Had Her"?
Yes! I remember being transfixed by it, too, in Orlando in November 92. Just completely mesmerising.
Where you up front that night? believe there was two Florida shows, was Orlando the one that had the folding chairs for seats in front? I remember what a mess that was. Though, a great show.
