The Lyrical Themes of Morrissey

Art direction, design, research

I always bristle when someone describes the lyrics of Morrissey as merely “depressing.” And yet, if you are a long time fan, you have noticed a definite similarity in the subjects and people of his verse: the unrequited love, the criminals, the self-loathing, the longing for something…else. This infographic is my personal (and subjective) attempt to identify those themes, find the connections within songs and uncover the most popular topics (hint, Disdain and Misfit characters top the charts.)
