The Smiths Release Strangeways, Here We Come

Strangeways CD Cover

On this date, September 28th in 1987, The Smiths released their 4th and final studio album, Strangeways, Here We Come. The record includes two of my favorite Smiths tracks, “Death of a Disco Dancer” — on which Morrissey plays the piano, making it the only Smiths album to feature Morrissey playing a musical instrument — and “Paint a Vulgar Picture,” both of which are just brilliance distilled.

Lyrics of the Day: “Death of a Disco Dancer” By The Smiths

 

The death of a disco dancer
Well, it happens a lot ’round here
And if you think Peace
Is a common goal
That goes to show
How little you know

The death of a disco dancer
Well, I’d rather not get involved
I never talk to my neighbour
I’d rather not get involved

Love, peace and harmony
Love, peace and harmony
Oh, very nice
Very nice
Very nice
Very nice
…But maybe in the next world
