Product Details

Paraphrasing Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character in 500 Days of Summer, it takes a certain type of person to obsess over sad, British pop music from the 80s. Johnny Marr’s iconic jangly guitar and Morrissey’s distinctly graceful vocals are everything to some. The pair’s intelligent and witty lyricism reaches its creative apex on this indie-rock classic – arguably the centrepiece of The Smiths’ catalogue.
