From BLO
I've read a comment or two that described Radiohead as the ultimate depressed person's music. I whole-heartedly disagree. For me at least, this is the best representation of crushing loneliness and sorrow put to song. I'm simply drawn to it, over and over again. Although the days where I've felt the way the narrator felt are long past, this stirs up old feelings within me.

Eat your heart out, "There is a Light that Never Goes Out." This is the best song on the album.

The single greatest Morrissey lyric combined with a lovely composition by Marr.

Vulnerable, sincere, and heart-wrenching.

This song is one of my canned responses when someone asks what my favorite song is. I also tend to pick it when I'm forced to sing something. This is probably the most emotional vocal Morrissey has done in his career and the arrangement Marr and co. set behind it is the perfect backdrop. Jeff Buckley did a decent cover of this song, but I don't believe that his delivery matched Morrissey's, which is surprising considering the emotional range Buckley could summon almost on a whim. As such, I have serious doubts that any band/artist could ever deliver a performance of this song that tops the original.
