25 Hours by Johnny Marr

Album: PlaylandReleased: 2014
  • This autobiographical song describes how a young Johnny Marr used music at school to escape the life that was laid out in front of him. He told NME: "I was immersed in the Catholic school system and an oppressive upbringing, looking at a life of having to consort with people that I didn't want to be around. I realised you need to find some escape to break out of that, and that's when I realized art was a way of escaping, in my case the music I was making or wanted to make."

    "I would've been eight or nine, and I knew I just needed to escape the life that I was in," he added. "I got a sense of what might be my destiny if I didn't do that."
