This one is a treat. The Smiths backing famous British pop singer Sandie Shaw for two (three on the 12" version) Smiths originals. The story behind their connection is supposedly that Morrissey and Marr were obsessed with Shaw and were the main reason why she came out of retirement and began playing music again, all because they wrote her a fan letter. So she met with them and then ended up making this record. It got into the UK Top 30 charts and they even had a performance on Top of the Pops (and there's another performance on YouTube of this song, here: If anyone reads this and can tell me what program it's from, I'd be really grateful).
