** Also in Morrissey's solo work, two notable tracks are "Late Night, Maudlin Street" and "I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday".



-->'''Morrisey:''' It was the frustration that I felt at the age of 20 when I still didn’t feel easy walking around the streets on which I’d been born, where all my family had lived – they’re originally from Ireland but had been here since the Fifties. It was a constant confusion to me why I never really felt This is my patch. This is my home. I know these people. I can do what I like, because this is mine.‘ It never was. I could never walk easily.

Added DiffLines:

* The band's break up in general. Heavy CreativeDifferences and eventually a small case of PoorCommunicationKills caused the group to fold and since, they've ''all been bitter towards each other'', especially Morrissey and Johnny Marr. This makes it worse when you look at old pictures/videos and see how happy they were, to see it ''gone'' is heartbreaking..
** And then it reaches [[SarcasmMode better levels]] when you learn that the band has not, and ''will not'' ever reunite together. '''Ever.''' That's how angry they are at each other...

* "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore," which is based on an experience Morrissey had being mocked for his depression. The final lines are particularly heartbreaking, which are layered over each other and repeated in increasing horror over the final section of the song: "I've seen this happen in other people's live/and now it's happening in mine/it's happening in mine!"

** "Paint a Vulgar Picture" is another example of bittersweetness leading to a TearJerker. The gorgeous melody and sad lyrics come together to make one of the most heartbreaking tracks on ''Strangways.''

* "Unhappy Birthday". Although, others might find it to be more humorous than anything else.
