Album: The Queen is Dead
. . .
“From the Ice Age to the Dole Age”
And so after the epic drama of “There is A Light That Never Goes Out,” The Smiths choose to close The Queen is Dead with not something matching its grandeur, but rather one of their most frivolous songs, “Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others.” And it’s a perfect choice, as “Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others” is musically closer to classic Smiths than, say, “Frankly, Mr. Shankly” or “Vicar in a Tutu,” though the lyrics on both those songs are actually pretty great.
