Song of the Day: "How Soon is Now?" (The Smiths)

45 cover for "How Soon is Now?"Not quite ready to let the posting streak die, so here's one from The Smiths that pairs nicely with "Not Too Soon" by Throwing Muses.

Perhaps not my favorite Smiths song, but it's certainly in the top 10. Maybe even top 5. Johnny Marr's guitar bit may not be particularly complicated, but damn it's satisfying.

Missed this song for the longest time because it's not on one of the studio albums.
