Glamorous Glue  performed by  Morrissey  (1992)
Composed by Morrissey/ White
From: UK
Recommended by phil [profile] on Monday 13th August 2001

I became able to vote about a week after the UK Conservative party had just won a fourth straight election victory. For me, this song just captures those feelings of utter frustration and anger which I was feeling at the time:
 
'3rd week with the jar you find
everything dies
we won't vote conservative
because we never have
everyone lies, everyone lies!'
 
It ends with Morrissey basically giving up on the country, singing 'We look to Los Angeles/ For the language we use/ London is dead, London is dead.' Even listening to it now, it takes me straight back to what was a pretty grim time for me, and - frankly - Britain.

from Your Arsenal (HMV 0777 7 99794 2 4)
