    ------ About the song REEL AROUND THE FOUNTAIN performed by The Smiths

Wow. How has this entire album been written for the purpose or ripping open my eyes in this moment in time.. next year or last year may have not had the same relevance.

    ------ About the song WELL I WONDER performed by The Smiths

I interpret it as being about a stranger. That moment when you pass by someone you've never met and won't see again, but catch a spark, and they stick in your mind and you hope you're stuck in their's, at least until the enchantment wears off and you forget about each other. Everyone hears what they need to hear, and I don't know the real intention, but that's what I take from it.

    ------ About the song ASLEEP performed by The Smiths

I read the book and listened to Asleep when it was first mentioned around the beginning and listened to it whilst finishing the rest of the book (It really emphasised the tone of the book). Beautiful song. So glad I found it. It makes me happy and sad at the same time. I don't know why. I'd actually like something like this to be played at my funeral or something.

    ------ About the song THE QUEEN IS DEAD performed by The Smiths

Morrissey is an anti-monarchist, this song isn't hard to decipher it's meaning though some of the lyrics contain subtleties of what he is actually talking about. The overall message is clear to me though, FUCK THE QUEEN.

    ------ About the song ASLEEP performed by The Smiths

This song is about depression, suicide, loneliness and a longing to die.

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I'm tired and I
I want to go to bed
(Tired of feeling depressed and wants to die)

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
And then leave me alone
Don't try to wake me in the morning
'Cause I will be gone
(He'll already be dead by morning, so there would be no point in trying to wake him)

Don't feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I will feel so glad to go
(He doesnt want his loved ones to grieve his death, because his life was so terrible it is a relief to die)

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I don't want to wake up
On my own anymore
(He cant stand waking up having no lover to be there for him)

Sing to me
Sing to me
I don't want to wake up
On my own anymore

Don't feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I really want to go
(Dont feel bad, its a relief for him to die)

There is another world
There is a better world
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well...
(No matter what happens when he dies, it must be better than his life)

Bye bye
Bye bye
Bye...

THIS CHARMING MAN | Reviewer: Zoila
    ------ About the song THIS CHARMING MAN performed by The Smiths

I've listened to this song hundreds of times and I've never thought anything but that it's about a young dude who's gay (but doesn't know it or admit it to himself yet), gets picked up by an older gay man, (possibly his future self - that's a good one, never thought of it) and all of a sudden it becomes clear to him who and what he is.
