'Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before,' The Smiths
From 1987's 'Strangeways, Here We Come'
I am a huge fan of great melody, unique voices and stellar vocal ability. Clearly Moz's effortless sounding croon can more than fulfill a need for these. Not only does his heavenly voice hold claim to some of the best melodies written during my life -- and, perhaps, ever -- but he manages to throw in some of the most well written, poignant, pained and biting lyrics whilst singing that can melt any chilled heart. On 'Stop Me' he sings, "Nothing's changed/I still love you/Oh, I still love you/Only slightly less than I used to, my love." As someone who finds himself often presented with reasons to love people only slightly less then I used to, I find that this goes down as one of my favorite lines, and one of my favorite songs. Oh, Moz, you know how to tell it!
Hear the song after the jump.
