Heaven Knows I’m miserable now  performed by  The Smiths  (1985)
Composed by Morrissey-Marr
From: UK
Mood: Indie Pop
Recommended by delicado [profile] on Monday 16th April 2001

I love this much-derided song. People quote it as proof that the Smiths made morose music for morose people, but if you actually listen, it’s an amazingly uplifting song. Johnny Marr’s guitar is heavenly sounding; it all reminds me that no one else really made pop like the Smiths. What I've just said really completely fails to do the song justice. Ah well...

from Hatful of Hollow (Rough Trade), available on CD (WEA)

when singing or hearing this song? It shows quite a bit of Morrissey here - he's "miserable" but it all sounds sublime, with a wistful tongue-in-cheekness to it. It's really pretty actually. If this is "misery" then please give me more of it, I'll get along quite nicely!
