Today's song is this Morrissey/Tobias composition from the Years of Refusal album.
What do we think?
Even though I like the last two songs on the album, you are absolutely right about YWGIYT. Would have been a glorious closer.Years of Refusal should have ended with You Were Good in Your Time, since the last two songs add nothing to the album. Dull chug rock, with typically bitter and unimaginative lyrics.
After hearing, with some astonishment, that That’s how People Grow Up was going to be included on Refusal (forcing me to own twice, on a long player, a song I didn’t want once), I was braced for a poor album.Can remember my disappointment when hearing YOR for the first time.
And this was one of those songs along with 3-4 others that made it disappointing for me...
This isn’t a bad song , I just don’t like it ..
It goes nowhere, does nothing, and it’s bland.
