A very typical ‘Mark’ music giveaway…

I’ve been listening to The Smiths a lot recently and the 1987 classic Strangeways Here We Come, has been spending much time in the CD player.

After remembering that said album was released 20 years ago this year, I have decided to do a celebratory review of it which I am hoping to sell for mucho cash[1]

So what’s the giveaway you warbler? Oh yes, that… well, to celebrate my recent nostalgic admiration for one of Northern England’s finest bands[2] I will be quoting The Smiths lyrics as subjects (and possibly some of the body text) for my next ten journal posts. It is 2 points for the person who correctly guesses the song title first and 1 point for the correct album title. At the end of the ten posts I will announce the winner and their prize.

N.B. None of the quotes contain song titles (this is due to a nasty one coming up)

Get to it peeple of the steeple[3]

(You ready


[1] $2 (USD), approximately
[2] Said without hesitation
[3] No, it’s not the first lyric, just me being incredibly clever[4] with words and pronunciation
[4] Read as ‘stupid’
