The Smiths are pretty much the greatest Britpop band of all time. If you haven’t bought their entire catalog and listened through completely, you really ought to (that seemed to be ramping up to something more than it did).
Ask is classic Smiths. Incredibly infectious chord sequence combined with Morrissey’s wonderful vocals. Combine this with a delightfully old school video, it’s a shame the track only ever made it’s way onto compilation albums and nothing more.
