The Smiths - How Soon Is Now (1985)
Time stands still when you play this seven minute classic!
Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr wrote "How Soon Is Now?" along with the songs "William, It Was Really Nothing" and "Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want" during a four-day period in June 1984. Marr recorded all three songs with bandmates Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce that July at London's Jam Studios. After a night out celebrating the session for "William, It Was Really Nothing" and "Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want", the trio reconvened the following afternoon to record "How Soon Is Now?". Producer John Porter was impressed by the basic riff Marr showed him, but felt the song needed something else. The pair's discussion turned to the early recordings of Elvis Presley, which led to an impromptu jam session of the song "That's All Right". During the jam, Marr worked on his chord progression for "How Soon Is Now?", which inspired the arrangement.
The song contains only one verse which is repeated twice, plus a chorus and a bridge. The subject is an individual who cannot find a way to overcome his crippling shyness and find a partner. Two couplets from the song are well known in pop culture, the opening to the verse:
“ I am the son, and the heir, of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir, of nothing in particular ”
and the chorus:
“ I am human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does. Ref. Wikipedia
