Song of the Day

If there’s a single song ever written about being out as a teenager in the suburbs in the 1980s, this is it. This was one of my favourite songs (on rotation) when I was 18 and everything in it rang true for me. Feeling like my home was no longer a home because of my parent’s reaction to my sexuality. Thinking about dying. Being too shy to ask for something. Every line. All of it.

Here is The Smiths with their 1986 song, There is A Light That Never Goes Out.
