As suggested by reader, B. Peach, this single from 1985 (as Peachy rightly states) captures the essence of Moz. From the ‘oscillating’ wailing to the lyrics of tongue-tying awkwardness and feelings of not being understood by anyone but YOU.
When I’m misunderstood
Try as hard as you can, I’ve tried as hard as I could
To make you see
How important it is for me
Here is a plea
From my heart to you
Nobody knows me
As well as you do
You know how hard it is for me
To shake the disease
That takes hold of my tongue
Heard through this prism it seems if it was a synth-pop riposte to Morrissey and The Smiths’ then dominance in all things introspective. What think ye?
