Sing Your Life The first solo foray into the rockabilly sound , but like lots of that type of music in the studio, it sounds slightly generic and weedy.I much prefer The Loop on the single that was released a month or so later. Even the lyrics sound really lightweight and disappointing. The repetitive “all the things you love/ loathe’ phrase towards the end always annoyed me. The radio EP version is much better and shows that that type of music is much more impactful when played live. It was the beginning of a proper energetic, well drilled band behind him, rather than the hired session musicians and he was all the better for it, finally shaking off the Smiths albatross once and for all. 3/5. One extra point given for the KROQ version.
