Download Morrissey into the top 40 update [16 Jan 2007|05:58pm]

girlafraid50

Hi everyone, just a little update on the poll. It’s really close. It looks like it’s between Meat is Murder, national front disco and life is a pigsty. There’s only a 1% separating them so if you haven’t yet voted please do, every vote counts.

I’ll keep you updated

Thanks

Download Morrissey into the top 40 experiment [14 Jan 2007|01:43pm]

girlafraid50

We’re doing an experiment over on Morrissey-solo.
We’re going to try and download a smiths or Morrissey song into the top 40. It could work because of the new downloading rule.

We’ve got a poll going at the moment to decide on which song.

For this to work we need as much fans to get involved as possible so please vote and take part.
Here’s the link

we all listen to music for a reason and in this community we all listen to the smiths for a particular reason. for me, it is a sensation. with many religions one finds themselves not having to worry about acheiving a particular direction or purpose once they invest themselves in the practice. when immersing myself completely into the lyrics and lore of the smiths i feel as though i really don't have to worry about myself; that i'm somehow taken care of. watched over?

what do you get out of the smiths?
