Afternoon Music (Smiths)

I spent the late afternoon catching up on correspondence, and chose a Smiths 1985 Apollo Theatre show as background music. I always become transfixed when listening to Morrissey and Marr, remembering hearing the first album for the first time and falling in love with the band ("the sun shines out of our behinds" is such a lovely lyric). Even now, after the unevenness of the Moz's career, one of his songs usually gets played every week (at least), and I am still a huge fan. I got little work done as I leaned back, remembering the days of college past, and immersed myself in the waves of wonderfully sad pop music (until the Mountain Goats, next in the queue, took over with his own version of plaintive, introspective songwriting).
