Album: The Queen is Dead
. . .
“Some dizzy whore, 1804”
After the double gut punch of “I Know It’s Over” and “Never Had No One Ever,” The Queen is Dead needed some lightening up, stat, else it would obscure the memory of the two witty punchy tracks that opened it.
Enter “Cemetry Gates,” the breeziest, happiest song The Smiths ever wrote, and a perfect way to end side one.
