  • ing. kralice öldü..
  • kapaginda alain delon'un bir fotografi yer almaktadir. (bkz: super album kapaklari)
  • derek jarmanin guzel bir kisa filmi, sirasiyla: "the queen is dead", "there is a light that never goes out" (bu kismi daha da guzel) ve "panic".
    ayrica, bir munasebetsizlige vesile olmus album:
    (bkz: the smiths is dead)
  • (bkz: kween)
  • “and if a double decker bus / crashes into us / to die by your side / such a heavenly way to die” seklinde kendiliginden ozetlenebilecek icli album.
  • the smiths'in emi records'la dustugu anlasmazlik sonucu yayimlanamama tehlikesiyle karsi karsiya kalmis albumu. johnny marr'in naklettigine gore grup albumun butun demolarini emi studyolarinda birakmis. anlasma feshedildigi icin gidip demolari alamamislar. bir gece yarisi johnny marr ve andy pencereden emi'nin studyolarina girip albumun demolarini calmislar ve boylece yayimlanabilmis album.allahtan bekcinin bu kontrat meselelerinden haberi yokmus
  • * eğer yalnızsan yaşam uzadıkça uzar, uzadıkça anlamsızlaşır diye sızlanarak dinlediğimiz bir the smiths nesnesi.
  • albumun kendisi ve hissettirdiklerini niteleyecek herhangi bir sifat bulamadigimdan olsa gerek, onu bir kenara birakiyorum. masumane ve nacizane bir sekilde belirtebilirim ki su dunyada vakif oldugum en onemli eylemlerden biridir kendisini dinlemis ve defalarca da dinleyebilecek oldugumu bilmem.
    bunun disinda sarki icin soylenecek biseyler var. bir kere davullar daha giriste oyle bir basliyor ki hele hele bitiste aklimi aliyor tatatatammmlar. yine "oyle super kiii susu var busu var" denemeyecek kadar siradan gorunusunun kandirikciligi altinda buyulu baska bir smiths parcasi diyip gecebilir miyiz? gecemeyiz, digerlerinden farkli oldugundan degil, hicbirini gecemeyiz zaten.
    ama bu sarki these are the things that kill me'si ve life is very long when you're lonely'siyle yurege oturur. bunun disinda johnny marr yine gitariyla soyle bir his atiyor icime: kin dolmaya hazirken kendini ciddiye almayarak sakinlesme hali.
  • oh ! take me back to dear old blighty,
    put me on the train for london town,
    take me anywhere,
    drop me anywhere,
    liverpool, leeds or birmingham
    but i don't care,
    i should like to see my ...

    i don't bless them
    farewell to this land's cheerless marshes
    hemmed in like a boar between arches
    her very lowness with a head in a sling
    i'm truly sorry - but it sounds like a wonderful thing

    i said charles, don't you ever crave
    to appear on the front of the daily mail
    dressed in your mother's bridal veil ?
    oh ...
    and so, i checked all the registered historical facts
    and i was shocked into shame to discover
    how i'm the 18th pale descendant
    of some old queen or other

    oh, has the world changed, or have i changed ?
    oh has the world changed, or have i changed ?

    some 9-year old tough who peddles drugs
    i swear to god
    i swear : i never even knew what drugs were
    oh ...
    so, i broke into the palace
    with a sponge and a rusty spanner
    she said : "eh, i know you, and you cannot sing"
    i said : "that's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

    we can go for a walk where it's quiet and dry
    and talk about precious things
    but when you're tied to your mother's apron
    no-one talks about castration
    oh ...

    we can go for a walk where it's quiet and dry
    and talk about precious things
    like love and law and poverty
    oh, these are the things that kill me

    we can go for a walk where it's quiet and dry
    and talk about precious things
    but the rain that flattens my hair ...
    oh, these are the things that kill me

    all their lies about make-up and long hair, are still there

    past the pub who saps your body
    and the church who'll snatch your money
    the queen is dead, boys
    and it's so lonely on a limb
    past the pub that wrecks your body
    and the church - all they want is your money
    the queen is dead, boys
    and it's so lonely on a limb

    life is very long, when you're lonely
    life is very long, when you're lonely
    life is very long, when you're lonely
    life is very long, when you're lonely
