MORRISSEY – ” Jacky’s Only Happy When She’s Up on the Stage “

“Jacky’s Only Happy When She’s Up on the Stage” is a politically charged song where in Morrissey shares his views on the UK leaving the EU through an analogy featuring the girl Jacky (as in the Union Jack).

From the forthcoming album ‘Low In High School’ out November 17th

I love the idea that this song is an analogy for Brexit. Jacky is the UK (Jacky as in the Union Jack), “since she lost you” is referring to the EU, “no audience telling her what to do” relates to independence and then of course the repetiton of “exit, exit” playing with the phrase “Brexit”. Don’t know if this is the intended meaning but the extra depth is fantastic! Edit: I am very aware Moz is pro-brexit, hence the “this country is making me sick” lyric 🙂
