My favorite band. Ever. Don't you already know?
No, it isn't They Might Be Giants, or Guided By Voices or R.E.M. or The Decemberists or Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. OK, truly I have no idea who my FAVORITE band ever is and I don't even know why I would pretend to know, there are just too too many GREAT bands to narrow it down to just one.
But a band I love very, very much.
The Smiths. I came to love them backwardsly, if that is a word which I seriously doubt. I was a fan of Morrissey and I met this boy who was good looking (loved that long hair,think Robert Smith)and cool(he was a musician) and had good taste in music (The Cure,Dylan, The Smiths, R.E.M,Luna,Material Issue, blah, blah, blah) and he had some Smiths albums and I borrowed them and well the rest is sort of history. I love this band. My parents did play them a lot when I was younger but I don't remember becoming a fan until much later. When they were already done.
Have I ever mentioned that I think I was born ten years too late?
Anyways, here are some of my favorites.
Ok, Ok that's enough.
p.s. The good-looking musician, I married him.
