Charting Morrissey

As you probably know, I'm a fan of Morrissey and The Smiths.

It just sort of...fits, doesn't it?

While the big news might be that Morrissey will release his long awaited album World Peace is None of Your Business in July, that's still a fair ways away.  However, the fine folks over at Buzzfeed have provided the Internets with something to do in the meantime, namely a series of diagrams to help fans and non-fans alike come to an understanding of this brilliant music.  For example, please see above.

Yes, that is a graphic rendition of Morrissey's "Every Day is Like Sunday." There are plenty of other gems like that one at the link, breaking the songs down to the rudimentary essence of Mozz and Smiths.  I get especially large giggles out of the flowchart breakdown of "How Soon is Now?" I mean seriously, tears dripping down my face laughter.  I realize that's not a typical reaction to many things Morrissey and Smiths, but maybe that's why it's all the funnier.

Related, check out a few of the song titles on the upcoming album:

"Earth is the Loneliest Planet"
"Neal Cassady Drops Dead"
"Kick the Bride Down the Aisle"
"Smiler with a Knife"

Sigh.  Sometimes, I think Mozz is writing just for me.
