Nostalgia (253)

Donskibeat has uploaded onto You Tube a film called Morrissey - Charlie's bus.

It shows Morrissey and Jonny Marr in 1984, taking a group of young school kids on an open topped bus to a sunny Kew Gardens, where they meet Sandie Shaw. They find a nice place to sit and listen to Sandie sing 'Jeanne' while Jonny played guitar.

I love the contrast between the sun shining on an idyllic setting, and all the kids enjoying themselves, having an ice cream, and Sandie Shaw singing the saddest of all the Smiths songs
'Jeanne, I don't know what happiness means, but I've looked in your eyes, and its not there'
set in the bleakest description of late 70s Manchester
'Jeanne, there is ice in the sink where we bathe, how can you call this a home,when you know its a grave?'
