Still Ill
The Smiths
1983

“♫ It just wasn’t like the old days anymore / No, it wasn’t like those days/ Am I still ill? […] ♫”

I believe Han Solo said it best—“I feel terrible!” I am still ill.

I do love this Peel Sessions/Hatful of Hollow version of Still Ill. I have to work tonight. The Smiths on the way to work— Johnny’s “Love Me Do”-esque harmonica and Moz’s lyrics are doing their best to heal me. “♫ Does the body rule the mind or does the mind rule the body ? I don´t know[…] ♫” I guess I’m going to find out – wish me luck.
