Morrissey was always at his lyrical best when he was at his most maudlin, does it get any more maudlin than “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out”?. I think the lyric: “And if a ten-ton truck, kills the both of us/to die by your side, well, the pleasure, the privilege is mine” would certainly place in The Top 5 most maudlin Morrissey couplets. Happy Birthday Mozzer!
