This Charming Man

May 22nd, 1959. Steven Patrick Morrissey was given to us by the lord himself. Placed into Manchester, England. A man who could express the disdain feelings of a 1980's world youth through his lyrics, and his gravity defying ducktail hair. Mostly being known as the frontman of the Smiths; he truly defined indie/new wave music permanently, As it still affects the interests of others to this day. Morrissey began expressing his feelings through writing, and by 1982 he had founded the Smiths with Johnny Marr. His iconic lyrics, and Johnny's unmistakeable playing, landed their first single "Hand in Glove" to hit #1 on the UK charts by 1983. They continued to release singles every few months through 1987. To give you an idea of the morbid genius lyrics this man came up with, here's a few excerpts. "Oh sweetness, sweetness I was only joking when I said by rights you should be bludgeoned in your bed" Taken from "Bigmouth Strikes Again" (1986, #26). Or “I called to wish you an unhappy birthday because you're evil and you lie and if you should die I may feel slightly sad, but I won't cry.” From "Unhappy Birthday" (1987). No one else wrote like he did, and in my opinion, noone ever could. I also find the way he carries himself to help show why he is the greatest entertainer. He had a knack for pissing people off. He would often make remarks such as "reggae is vile". Morrissey was never afraid to push his opinions over his work. He was a very strong vegan and chose to release an album by the title "Meat is Murder" (1985). Unfortunately, this outgoing
