All lyrics from Southpaw Grammar album, popular Morrissey songs with tracklist and information about album.

Southpaw Grammar is the fifth studio album by English alternative rock singer Morrissey, released on 28 August 1995 by record labels RCA in the UK and Reprise in the US. The album charted at number 4 in the UK and number 66 in the US, but received a mixed response from critics. The singles lifted from the album were "Dagenham Dave" (which reached number 26 in the UK Singles Chart in August 1995) and "The Boy Racer" (which reached number 36 in December).

This also clearly states that "Southpaw Grammar" is a much different album by Morrissey than his other solo works at the time. I like it because it's a big introduction and very much of a different type of work from Morrissey. The Operation" starts off with a very long drum solo, which seems to be the most un-Morrissey like presence ever on an album. The solo is cool; it reminds me of Gene Krupa. It's a song of sadness, which is a put-down, but on the other hand, it may be a person who has naturally changed and causing stress on the community around the subject matter.

Album · 1995 · 8 Songs. Teaming up with guitarists Alain Whyte and Boz Boorer, Morrissey toughened up his sound with Vauxhall and I and then continued the streak with Southpaw Grammar, another piece of unusual aggression from this pop-loving singer. The Teachers Are Afraid of the Pupils opens things with an eleven-minute opus where Morrissey sides not with youth but age as the kids spiral out of control. Southpaw, another ten minute cut, concludes things with the sound of a ponderous apocalypse. The album is considered in some circles to be Morrissey’s prog-rock album thanks to an abundance of orchestration

Southpaw Grammar probably has less of Morrissey’s own words on it than any one of his other releases. Boy Racer’ follows, and from the very opening muted notes is an all-time Morrissey classic: the punchiest music of the album is littered with a wealth of lyrical gems that characterise the spirit of this blackly comedic record. Boy Racer’ is the most engaging song on Southpaw, and to a greater extent than its stable mates offers no quarter in its delivery.

Southpaw Grammar 4 Maladjusted 1 At a recent concert, Morrissey announced that he was about to play a song from his 1995 album, Southpaw Grammar – at which point an excited whoop went up from the audience. It was a response that the singer clearly wasn’t expecting. Could you furnish me with receipts? These days, Morrissey is a National Treasure. His arena gigs sell out in minutes, his singles go Top 10 on both sides of the Atlantic, his half-baked opinions on immigration are earnestly debated on Question Time. Once-hostile publications slaver over.

Actually, solo album is a bit of a misnomer because, like Morrissey’s best work with the Smiths, Southpaw Grammar is actually a collaboration, his second record with producer Steve Lillywhite and guitarists and co-writers Boz Boorer and Alain Whyte. Together they have constructed an aural landscape of raucous, barreling guitars that makes Morrissey’s oh-so-familiar themes sound almost fresh. While some may gripe that Morrissey could expand his worldview a bit, a Morrissey album that didn’t wallow in misery would be like Kafka without paranoia, Jagger without satyrmania or Seurat without dots.
