The closing track of Strangeways, Here We Come, The Smiths' fourth and final studio album, this caustic missive from singer Morrissey to guitarist Johnny Marr brings an end to The Smiths' brief career.
I won't share you, no I won't share you With the drive And the dreams inside This is my time
Disagreements concerning career direction fractured the relationship between Morrissey and Marr with the possessive singer increasingly irritated at the guitarist's work with other artists. Johnny Marr admitted:
"The lyrics were brought to my attention by somebody before we got out of his studio. There were raised eyebrows and 'Whaddya think of that then?' But it was all in a day's work for me really, still is."
He added: "If that sentiment was directed towards me, then I feel quite good about it. It's nice."
According to the book 1001 Albums To Hear Before You Die, this album closer "allegedly reduced drummer Mike Joyce to tears."
"What's Up" by 4 Non Blondes has endured as one of the most popular songs of the '90s, but it wasn't a huge hit at the time and the band split after one album. Frontwoman Linda Perry went on to write hits for Pink and Christina Aguilera.
