Music endorsement: The Smiths – “How Soon Is Now”

The band: The Smiths

The track: How Soon Is Now

The year: 1985

The reason: One hell of a depressing song that, for some reason, makes me feel good every time I hear it. It’s one of the few Smiths tracks I can tolerate without needing air and sunshine soon after. That aside, this would easily rate in my top 50 tracks of ‘all time’. The wavy and soaring riffs take the song to another level, unmatched.

Serving suggestion: On a gloomy day, get some good whisky, dark chocolate, and have listen to this track. Just don’t keep anything sharp nearby.
