    General Comment.."it is a very sad thing that nowadays there is so little useless information" - OW

    OW he is famed for his wit and commentary of society at that time in London.
    His plays are excellent statements of the time and many books cite his words of wisdom and wit - Morrissey would naturally be fascinated by such a fellow - "one's only real life is the life one never leads..."- OW

    General CommentOscar Wilde's best poem is The Ballad of Reading Gaol. It was written while he was in prison and it's one of my absolute favorites.

    General CommentI doubt Morrissey did much more then name this one.
    It was probably Marr organizing an instrumental.
