24. A song by a band you wish were still together

I can't really imagine the Smiths still together in 2017--few bands can last that long without becoming a sad parody of themselves, and the Smiths' last album was already showing all the signs of a group past its best. Then again, it's nice to fantasize about them lasting just a little longer, releasing one or two more good albums, putting off the moment when Morrissey, away from Johnny Marr's counterbalancing force, disappeared up his own ego and re-emerged as an Islamophobic Brexiter.

I'm giving two links again on this post, the first because it's a song I really love, and the second not only because of the songs, but because of the video(s), directed by groundbreaking queer film-maker Derek Jarman.

I still hold Morrissey's high point as a solo musician were the first few years after The Smiths broke up, when he still remembered the discipline of being in a touring band.
