That’s How People Grow Up

Morrissey already has a Greatest Hits album out – it’s called ‘The Queen Is Dead’ – but here’s the lead single from the forthcoming ‘Greatest Hits Off His Last Two Albums, “Viva Hate” And A Few Others’ collection. ‘That’s How People Grow Up’ sees Moz in an unusually chirpy mood, letting a scary opera lady wail away while he sings about how he broke his back in a car crash. Tune-wise it’s not exactly a career high-point, but thematically Morrissey seems to be suggesting that maturity can only be achieved by experiencing struggle. Using this theory we’ve worked out that Moz is roughly 469 years old.
