Everyday Is Like Sunday
"A masterful piece of prose"
"Think on, Lad"
| "I find his sense of
storytelling, with its irony and poignancy, very moving and believable.
The lyric to Everyday Is Like Sunday is, to me, a masterful piece of prose,
and I think that is very rare for a modern day songwriter. I'm so fond
of this song I've recorded a version of it which will appear on the next
- Chrissie Hynde (Pretenders), Q, September 1992
| "It's moving, human and
passionate, but strangely not in an explicitly lyrical sense. There is
an overhwleming feeling of loss but with desolation. I always thought
it was a touching reply to a piece of fan mail."
- Brett Anderson (Suede) on "Will Never Marry", Q, September 1992
| "My all-time top song
would be Everyday Is Like Sunday."
- Siobhan Fahey (Bananarama/Shakespeares Sister), Q, September 1992
| Watch out Stazzer. What with writing about
burning people at the stake, skinheads and killing disc jockeys and such
like you've got to be careful that you don't attract a Sham Army style
of following and end up like Jimmy Pursey. Think on, lad.
- Steven Wells, New Musical Express, 6/4/88
| "They were the first three songs that
I actually set down and pandered across. Which is probably quite awful
to admit, but I had reached the stage where I no longer wanted to be
intense. I wanted it to be straight forward and almost, in another way,
I wanted everything else to take over. But that didn't really happen
in the way people viewed the record. So many people who bought Viva
Hate and bought Smiths records actually lived with the lyric sheet for
days before they would play the record. So I think that's a unique position,
but it's one that momentarily began to suffocate me slightly."
- Morrissey on the b-sides to "Everyday Is Like Sunday", Sounds, June 18, 1988
