If, in your life, you haven't wept, laughed, or danced mournfully to the Smiths or Morrissey, you might want to get your head checked. Since you're not likely that heartless a monster (spawned in November?), you'll enjoy local band Ordinary Boys, which covers all things Morrissey.
Ordinary Boys officially became (according to themselves) the "One and ONLY SoFla Smiths/Morrissey tribute act" in 2010. The "boys" were fueled by a unified love for the iconic '80s Brit band and their controversial and gorgeous (can we add that?) singer.
We asked the not-so-Ordinary Boys to fill us in on their favorite Morrissey or Smiths moments, but they had a tough time coming up with a short list. Their full set includes 21 songs covering decades of Moz-fueled passion. "I personally prefer Moz himself, but Illiah and Ian are more Smiths fans," Navarette points out, but the quintet came to a few agreements for the purposes of this article.
