I like some songs but have not really gotten into The Smiths. I imagine if I listen to them a bit more they can grow on me. However Morrissey (like many other singers in the eighties) sounds as if he is perpetually yawning.

For every decade Britain has produced one exceptionally offbeat songwriter, Ray Davies in 60s, Bowie in 70s, Morrissey for 80s and Jarvis Crocker for 90s.
