Song 22: Steven Patrick Morrissey – The last of the famous international playboys

At last, Morrissey. The last of the famous international playboys was never released in a studio album though it was featured in Bona Drag released in 1990. The song featured at number 6 in the UK Singles Chart. Is one of the songs that if you hear it over and over again you are never bored of it. “The song mythologizes the notorious pair of vicious London gangsters known as the Kray twins (Ronnie and Reggie Kray), who held a tight rein on the East End of London during the 1960s“. Although I do not know much about East London at 60s I love the rhythm of the song. Enjoy.
