Oh sweetness, sweetness
I was only joking when I said
By rights you should be subjected to
Rolf Harris playing Stairway to heaven
In your head

And now I know how Joan of Arc felt
Now I know how Joan of Arc felt
But I couldn't understand a bloody French word she spoke

There would be few Smiths songs that aren't about SA :)

I like Ask- a jaunty little tune about shyness.


and then there's The Eels:

With a very few notable exceptions (see "Ask" as mentioned above), The Smiths could easily be the official band of SA, as far as I'm concerned. Plus their music is beautiful! 1986's "The Queen is Dead" was recently voted the best album of the 1980s, and they remain hugely influential.

Sad lyrics with happy-sounding melodies; perfect music for when you have the sort of melancholia that is more bittersweet than full-on sadness. Some of Van Morrison's stuff is like that too (e.g., "I'm Tired, Joey Boy", "One Irish Rover").

I have always thought of a tie between The Smiths, Joy Division (just listen to Atmosphere, From Safey to where?, Digital, Dead Souls, 24 Hours, Passover...)
and Nick Drake as the official artists for SAD. Someone mentioned Eels and the song "Things The Grandchildren Should Know" that's not SA related IMO, their song Ordinary Man reflects it a bit more, so does Agoraphobia by Deerhunter.
Anyway, my favorite Smiths song is and always has been "Please Please Please let me get what i want":


How Soon Is Now? is a great song no doubt but i feel like ti has been used too much to keep it's original value. Did i made myself clear? :|

I love your list Joy Division pick for SA official band.
How 'bout Depeche Mode circa Black Celebration?
