The Boy with the Thorn in His Side

The Smiths

Track #7 from the album The Queen Is Dead

 Main Author's Notes

Custom by Yaniv297
Venue, Dryvox and Fake Ending by Capn Kris.

The lead single from the classic “Queen is Dead” album, “The Boy with the Thorn in his Side” shows the Smiths at their best, an upbeat, fun and catchy tune that also has a deeper meaning. "The thorn is the music industry and all these people who never believe what I said, tried to get rid of me, never played the records, so I think we've reached the stage where if they don't believe me now, will they ever believe me”, says Morrissey, who named it his favorite Smiths song in 2003. It’s a fantastic custom, with some great guitars, and Morrissey’s freeform yodeling (well, sort of) in the coda of the song being a particular highlight.
