Song of the Day: Morrissey - Seasick, Yet Still Docked

I've already proclaimed an affinity for The Smiths and their many acolytes, so it's probably no surprise that I'm a Morrissey fan as well.  I recently bought the newly reissued Bona Drag compilation, which includes some of the singles off Viva Hate (my favorite LP of his).  But my absolute favorite song is "Seasick, Yet Still Docked" (from Your Arsenal) in which he tones down the whine and self-deprecation and delivers one of his most beautiful, sad songs.

(Note there's about 15+ seconds of silence at the beginning of this track.  Do not adjust your sets)
