Wor(l)d of Morrissey
  We're back! Welcome to the world of Morrissey's lyrics.

This site and all of the work made to keep it updated during the last 25 years are dedicated to my beloved friend MaCa65 who suddenly left this lonely planet
and me without words. Throughout the short stretch of time that we have been given to spend together as close friends, we shared many things,
thoughts, passions and some bits of Life. Back in 1983, together we discovered a band called The Smiths and together since then, we followed Morrissey's career
as one of the most influential and inspiring singer/artist/poet of our age. Maca65 has always been a strong supporter since when I first launched WoM,
so this is and will always be entirely for you, my friend. -- David

La compilation contiene le tracce di due sessioni eseguite alla BBC (John Peel, 21 settembre 1983 e Kid Jensen, 4 luglio 1983) oltre ai singoli usciti nello stesso periodo. Fu pubblicata nel Novembre 1984 e giunse fino al 7° posto nella classifica inglese. Come con quasi tutto ciò che gli Smiths hanno pubblicato, Morrissey ha tenuto fuori "Hand In Glove" da questo album, sempre per "vendetta" per il poco successo ottenuto dal primo singolo nelle classifiche. "This Night Has Opened My Eyes" è stata pubblicata per la prima volta su questo album. Il titolo è forse un riferimento a ciò che di solito si ha dentro il cappello, la testa. Potrebbe tradursi all'incirca con "una manciata di vuoto, di nulla". L'ispirazione per l'immagine sulla copertina dell'album è un numero speciale del quotidiano nazionale francese "Libération" interamente dedicato a Jean Cocteau, datato luglio 1983. L'immagine del ragazzo col tatuaggio sulla spalla appare vicino ad un articolo su un giovane che adorava Cocteau a tal punto da tatuarsi uno dei suoi disegni sulla spalla. C'è anche un piccolo rettangolo blu accanto alla foto, la stessa tonalità di blu utilizzata per lo sfondo di "Hatful Of Hollow"...

A compilation of two BBC sessions (John Peel, 21/9/83 and Kid Jensen, 4/7/83) and singles tracks, released in November 1984. It charted at No. 7 in the UK album charts. As with almost everything The Smiths released, Morrissey has plonked "Hand In Glove" on, in revenge for its original poor chart performance. "This Night Has Opened My Eyes" was available for the first time on this album. The title of the compilation is maybe a reference to what people usually keep inside their hats, i.e. their brains. The source for the picture on the cover of the album is an old Special Issue of the main national French newspaper "Liberation" entirely dedicated to Jean Cocteau, dated July 1983. The picture of the boy with a tattoo on his shoulder appears next to an article about a young man who idolised Cocteau so much that he tattooed one of his drawings on his shoulder. There's also a small blue rectangle next to the picture, the same blue as used on Hatful of Hollow background...
