The smiths - last night i dreamt that somebody loved me - Nevada Smith s Steakhouse and Saloon


The last official single from The Smiths and a key song from Strangeways Here We Come, "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me" is probably the sound of the band at their most orchestral. The song's five minutes of bleak desperation make for the darkest imagery of the second half of the band's final studio album. It almost seems more representative of The Cure than The Smiths. The two-minute opening consists of only piano notes and samples of a raging mob, before the band kicks into a maelstrom of sweeping strings, weary guitars, and processed effects. The bombast and aggression of Johnny Marr's guitar seems a bit out of character, and Morrissey's vocals seem more emotionally distant and more produced than usual. With Marr, Andy Rourke, and Mike Joyce all providing a backdrop of tension, it's up to Morrissey to bring the song back to earth, but he sounds more and more disinterested as the song reaches its conclusion. His vocals dissolve into higher and higher octaves until his breath runs out. Bombastic, but also energy-draining, "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me" is a beautiful, sad song that sees The Smiths pulling away from each other at odd angles. One can imagine that its recording may have added at least a small helping of weariness and unease to the deteriorating relationship of Morrissey and Marr. It would seem more than reasonable to suggest that the song is symbolic of Morrissey's views toward his friend and musical muse Marr at the time.

Situated in the heart of Dublin’s shopping district by Jervis St we are but a stone’s throw from attractions such as The Jameson distillery Smithfield, Guinness Brewery and The Leprechaun museum!
