I love the Smiths‘ song “William It Was Really Nothing” because it is so good and maybe because my ego loves the fact that it uses my name. Did you know that the song was written about the late, great Billy MacKenzie off of the Associates? One-time Smiths member Craig Gannon has previously said that Morrissey wrote the song about his brief friendship with Billy.
MacKenzie responded with “Stephen You’re Really Something”. There really aren’t enough response songs these days are there? Maybe that will have to be the subject of a future post!
