For all things concerning Moz's solo career.

Now My Heart Is Full, not for any particular reason other than it's fantastic. A close second would be Speedway.

Yeah, Now My Heart Is Full. It's an absolutely beautiful song with great lyrics too (as always!), and Morrissey's voice just soars. One of his best solo songs, if not the best. I'm absolutely addicted to Why Don't You Find Out For Yourself at the moment too, so that would probably be my second choice.

I decree today that life is simply taking and not giving
England is mine, it owes me a living
But ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
Oh, ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
But we cannot cling to the old dreams anymore
No, we cannot cling to those dreams
Does the body rule the mind or does the mind rule the body?
I dunno...
Under the iron bridge we kissed
And although I ended up with sore lips
It just wasn't like the old days anymore
No, it wasn't like those days
Am I still ill...?

Yes, Now My Heart is beautiful in the the truest sense of the word. For the longest time, however, it was Lazy Sunbathers. Just how his voice sounds on the song, very lazy like he can't be bothered; simple lyrics thay convey a lot.

Now My Heart Is Full, also with Speedway a close second. Reminds me of a lot of bad times, in the best possible way.

"Why Don't You Find Out For Yourself"

perhaps my favourite song off perhaps my favourite album. im not sure why this song resonates with me so much, especially the first two verses [the last does bring it home for me]. ijuste think everything about the song works so unbelievably perfectly- the lyric, the vocal, the music, the production- it juste the perfect song.

"The Lazy Subathers" because (weird answer, I know) before I left Melbourne I was hanging out with my Mancunian friend and she said that she never wanted to go back to England, that she would rather stay in Australia and be a 'lazy sunbather' and now that song has special significance to me :)

Well I find it so painfully hard to choose one song, but I absolutelly LOVE this line:

But now you only call me when you're feeling depressed
When you feel happy I'm so far from your mind...
