Classic vintage video you never saw.
The Smiths- "Boy with the Thorn in His Side" (1986)

Although the Smiths had an incredible amount of great singles, they didn't make many videos. The ones they did make are pretty dull. And most of them only have Morrissey ("Girlfriend in a Coma", "Stop Me if You Think..."). That leaves only a few videos where the band is merely playing together in a room. When he went solo, Morrissey made some decent videos that actually had a visual story. While those videos are nice, it's a shame the band didn't make an effort on this. Obviously they could have done so much more with "Boy". At least here there are some good close-ups of Johnny Marr. And the other two guys.
