86. 15. The Smiths - There Is A Light That Never Goes Out
“And if a double-decker bus / Crashes in to us To die by your side / Is such a heavenly way to die". By 1985, the Marr-Morrissey songwriting partnership was at its peak and, as an example of the form they were in, this was written during the same sessions as Bigmouth Strikes Again. Taken from the classic 1986 album The Queen Is Dead, Morrissey’s romantic ode to obsessive love was never released as a single during the band’s lifetime.
