How Soon Is Now? is my personal favorite single by the Smiths (one of my personal favorite artists). The song was originally released on the singles collection Hatful Of Hollow (1984) and the sophomore full-length Meat Is Murder (1985). Morrissey's lyrics and vocals are not the key to this song, but rather the dark and lush guitar work of Johnny Marr as he crescendos in an out of the melody. How Soon Is Now? is also one of, if not the most covered and sampled songs of this genre with many diverse bands and artists such as Tatu, Ultraviolet Eye, Inner Sanctum, Bazooka Joe, Snake River Conspiracy, Paradise Lost, the Meatmen, Everclear, Love Spit Love, and Pet Engine covering the song, and Soho sampling heavy for the single Hippychick.

A few simple words can explain this song.....fantastic, touching, and moving. I will always love this song no matter what. I could never get tired of it.

One of my favorite all-time songs. I also like the punched-up cover version by Love Spit Love. Makes my list of songs guaranteed to make me cry if I'm feeling down. Everyone carries old emotional baggage around.. everyone can't live up to someone's expectations sometime.. and everyone wants to be loved.
