A shyness that is criminally vulgar

I know they use the Smiths' "How Soon Is Now" as the theme song for "Charmed" mostly because it has that "I am human and I need to be loved" line running through the chorus, but wow, what a spectacularly miserable song - in the best of ways, of course.

I was once at a party where this woman just kept quoting me lyrics from the Smiths. Actually, if I'm recalling it right, she just kept quoting me the lyrics of "Ask". It's quite odd to have a song about shyness being brashly quoted repeatedly.

the version they use for charmed is a cover by love spit love, orginally found on the craft ost. :)

Wow, that's great info! I'm really not sure on this, but I was under the impression that in different seasons they used different versions of the song as the theme...

I've never heard a Love Spit Love song besides "Am I Wrong", which I love... continuing the chain of covers, I like Brand New's version of "Am I Wrong".
It's amazing how Morrissey has made a career by doing nothing except sounding (and deliberately making himself) miserable and being a total asshole. It doesn't explain why I'm a fan of both his solo and Smiths work, but I think it's because all assholes have a reality distortion field.

To be fair, I've seen Morrissey live in concert (best performance on his setlist that night - "Meat is Murder") and he was actually quite gracious to the rabid fanbase.
