A dreaded sunny day
So I meet you at the cemetry gates
Keats and Yeats are on your side
A dreaded sunny day
So I meet you at the cemetry gates
Keats and Yeats are on your side
While Wilde is on mine
So we go inside and we gravely read the stones
All those people, all those lives
Where are they now?
With loves and hates
And passions just like mine
They were born
And then they lived
And then they died
Seems so unfair
I want to cry
You say: "Ere thrice the sun hath done
salutation to the dawn"
And you claim these words as your own
But I've read well and I've heard them said
A hundred times (maybe less, maybe more)
If you must write prose or poems
The words you use should be your own
Don't plagiarise or take 'on loan'
There's always someone, somewhere
With a big nose who knows
And who trips you up and laughs
When you fall
Who'll trip you up and laugh
When you fall
You say: "Ere long done do does did"
Words which could only be your own
And then produce the text
From whence was ripped
'Some dizzy whore', 1804
A dreaded sunny day
So let's go where we're happy
And I meet you at the cemetry gates
Oh Keats and Yeats are on your side
A dreaded sunny day
So let's go where we're wanted
And I meet you at the cemetry gates
Keats and Yeats are on your side
But you lose
'Cause weird lover Wilde is on mine

Too bad! ...he has an odd voice, but it works for "The Smiths"!
High Quality.

I totally agree!

It's strange how people of "diverse tastes" could discriminate over others.

Given to impulsiveness, still, I gave Cemetery Gates (Cemetry? Huh? Just so Morrissey to spell it like that) a 10. Bumped it down to a 9 for neglecting my personal fave, PBS. Do as I say; not as I do: Never read the lyrics! Especially on a The Smiths song.  
Yes Sir!
Marvelous....

Love Smiths. Hate Morrissey.

All cred to DrLex:

I think expecting Radio Paradise to have a playlist of 8 billion songs, or even 8 million songs, is quite a bit of lack of perspective. Do you ever come out in the real world? Even in my country where FM radio doesn't suck as hard as in the US, you'll hear the same song multiple times a day unless you'd go working, shopping and dining while wearing industrial ear protection. Because you seem to like numbers, here's some mathematics. Suppose a station has a playlist of 10000 songs. I have no idea how many songs the active playlist of RP has, but this seems reasonable, especially in the light of the following assumption. Suppose this station is run by DJ Random, who gives every song a number between 1 to 10000 and uses a perfect random number generator to pick the next song. Suppose you listen to 120 songs this way (at an average of 4 minutes per song, that would take 8 hours). The birthday paradox says that in this case (see simulation below), there's a 50% chance that you'll hear the same song twice in this time span!

For a playlist of 50000 songs, the 50% chance of repetition is already reached at approx. 250 picks, not the expected 600. Of course, while many radio streams work this way, on RP this is not how it's done — luckily. First of all, Bill avoids the horrible transitions that DJ Random would produce, by combining songs that actually belong together. This reduces the amount of randomness, but of course Bill has a memory and will try to avoid repeating the same song often. To minimize repetition, he would need to create an ideal sequence of all songs once, and repeat this eternally. But that would become boring too, so as a compromise and to keep managing RP tractable, Bill recycles 'stretches' of playlist, slowly mutating them and discarding them after a while. And Bill is only human, so he'll play the songs that he likes a little bit more often than others. I wasted some of my time telling this story to show that things can be a whole lot worse, and I believe RP comes damn close to an ideal radio station. You just have to accept the fact that ideality doesn't exist and that some of the songs you don't like will be played, and repeated after a while.


 

My favorite local terrestial station only plays new releases and has a light, medium and heavy rotation where songs will spend 2 weeks or so in each cycle and then be discarded never to be heard from again.  This guarantees that you will only hear a particular song multiple times a day for a two week period max, then you will hear it once every 2 days or so and then maybe once every 3 or 4 days and then poof gone!  Another of my favorite online radio stations plays literally anything from any time period at any time as long as it was never in the top 40.  Their library is seemingly endless and you will never hear the same song twice in the same day. 

RP is a great station, not trying to denigrate it at all.  I think that it is the best adult contemporary online station in the world hands down, I am just saying there are radio stations that have a lot less redundancy than you seem to think possible, I know, I listen to them.
Love these guys - love the lyrics on all the songs and the titles "Vicar in a Tutu", "Big Mouth Strikes Back"....too bad they aren't together anymore.  Morrisey had some pretty ok solo stuff though.
Come on Moz and Johnny sort it out boys - you were both awesome doing Smiths songs solo but surely you could get together for 1 tour as the Smiths.  I am willing to beg if it will help.
Another Smiths song that runs the emotional (and musical) gamut from A to C ...
Okay, I am changing the station now knowing full well that music taste is subjective.

Everybody in my church be dancing to this marvelous song...  love it...
 
Drone.....Drone...... Drone....{#Frustrated}
Ok, wow, sounded like the BNL lead singer (being played on RP!? no way!) love them - had to check - ah, the Smiths
Pretty good Smiths tune. Just not in the mood for it right now I guess. Meet you at the symmetry gates.

Perfect jingle jangle pop by the greatest band/songwriting pair of the past 30 years.

Before you start arguing, remember there's always someone, somewhere with a big nose who knows. In this instance, it's me.

Great song! The Smiths at their retro Brit Indie best!{#Clap}
I highly doubt that Yates is on my side.  He was Illuminati. -_-

Awesome (and impressive) breakdown. {#Clap}

Sometimes Morrissey can be a bit of a dreary drawers, but the lyrics are often quite funny, like these:

If you must write prose/poems
The words you use should be your own
Don't plagiarise or take "on loan"
'Cause there's always someone, somewhere
With a big nose, who knows
And who trips you up and laughs
When you fall
Who'll trip you up and laugh
When you fall
You say : "'Ere long done do does did"
Words which could only be your own

He also tries to avoid repeating the same artist often.  You know, like Morrissey twice in four hours.  Hence my message.

Always reminds me of the teeny-bopper Goths hanging out at Evergreen Cemetery in Santa Cruz as I would walk past, to work, in the mid-80s. Actually, they were kind of frightening.

Good point, ever had cheap Caviar? It's terrible, not worth having unless you pay for the good stuff. Morrissey is just like that - a hideous imitation of the real thing. It's no wonder that most Morrissey fans these days are those who fondly remember it from their youth - before they developed a discriminating taste!

Maybe he was a kid who had the crap beaten out of him at school - that would explain his miserableness. I too had the crap beaten out of me at school and was pretty f*cking miserable until my 30s as a direct result ;-| Not the best Smiths number, but still worth a 5.

Hate away, but as for me, I will keep listening.
Of course they're very 'British'! They were the my perfect guitarheroes in my teenager-years in the 80's. Bought every album, listened permanently to them and drove my parents nuts. :cheesygrin: :music:

As I said on another thread I think they are very 'British' and a lot of America just won't get them. For a start the lyrics to many of their songs are actually quite clever and ironic whereas if they'd written about spouses leaving, pets dying or their Chevy giving up Ameria may just have taken them to heart :wink:

"I don't want to talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wiper. I fart in your general direction. Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries." But seriously, like many bands The Smiths are dear and incredible to some. To others they require some interest and dedication (listening) to see (hear) the light. To (empty headed) others they stand out distinctly and are easily dismissed on a first (or a few) listens. Its obvious that The Smiths are important to a lot of people.

Often true but this song isn't an example of that. This isn't a "great" song, but it's a clever little tune with diversionary lyrics that one has to stop and listen to. And that's all The Smiths were: a great unapologetic pop band too clever for top 40. If you don't like repetitive top 40 pop tunes, ya hafta go elsewheres.

Don't get The Smiths. From what I have heard here they can't carry a tune. Not enough talent to make up for that in my book.

Mozza does leave himself open a bit for that, doesn't he? Still, he's remained reasonably interesting musically over the years, which is a lot more than can be said for his contemporaries. By the way, listen to 'The Light 3000' by Tom Schneider for a different slant on 'There is a Light' from the same album. Sorry I can't provide a link.
