everyone of us have our influences in almost everything specially music. the guy in this pic is Steven Patrick Morrissey. i’ve been indulged in his music back when he was still in his band The Smiths and up until now in his solo career. there are a lot of good bands with good music in the wide expanses of the music world but this guy and his music has really caught my attention and since then, i’ve been really digging to his songs. to a common person, his songs is just ordinary to the ears but if you read his lyrics, you’ll discover simple yet compelling words like watching a low-rated movie but in the end found out the unexpected twist actually left you wanting to watch it again. the right term for this (correct me if i’m wrong) is ‘catchy words’. in his lyrics, you may discover hidden phrases with meaning like poetry does to a reader. this is one of his song lyrics that i considered hauntingly mesmerizing : ‘ it may all end tomorrow or it could go on forever, in which case I’m doomed.’as for my understanding for this phrase, the world may come to an end or it may not but to whatever point we’re still doomed to die.so, this wraps up my short essay about this artist and for just wanting to write something about him and his music as a tribute for influencing me.

    i love his songs! ive always loved music but when i first heard suedehead and you’re the one for me (fatty) i got crazy over the smiths and moz. i believe that was also the time that i have decided to do something for the local music scene. it was small, but i got to do something.

    the smiths and moz is on number one spot on my list with the beatles and elvis.

    long story short, i got the nick name SUEDE because of the song suedehead (Moz) and blue suede shoes (Elvis, who was Moz’ idol)

    • all right, Bai Suede! how naive I was for not noticing your nick. Even so, Long Live Moz!Well, as for my own song fave of Moz’s, almost all of them but to name a few: Everyday Is like Sunday, Picadilly Palare( where i pulled the phrase “It may all end tomorrow…”), Such Little Thing Make Such Big Difference and Hairdresser On Fire, OMG I can’t hold myself and the list goes on…..
