The Smiths – There is a light that never goes out (album: The Queen is dead 1986)

This song is by The Smiths. I love this band so much!!!They are the pioneers of the alternative rock music. A lot of British alternative bands such as Blur, Oasis and Suede were influenced by them. They have a lot of great songs with wonderful deep lyrics and music. My hubby always makes fun of Morrissey’s voice. I think he’s awesome!!!
This is one of my favourite Smiths songs. It’s about that really happy moment in your life that you wish it would never end, a moment when you have the most genuine smile on your face...makes me think about my first date with my hubby, I’ll give everything to relive that night. Check out this magical song

What’s this song about?
Allmusic's Tim DiGravina argues that while depressed characters were a regular feature in Morrissey's work, his lyrics on "There Is a Light" "ups the sad-and-doomed quotient by leaps and bounds." Goddard argues in his book Songs That Saved Your Life that the basic narrative story is similar to that of the James Dean film Rebel Without a Cause, in which Dean—an idol of Morrissey's—leaves his torturous home life, being the passenger to a potential romantic partner. According to Goddard, an earlier version lacked some of the finished version's ambiguity, culminating in the line "There is a light in your eyes and it never goes out".
