Irish Blood, English Ringtone

More proof that great singles often make horrible ringtones. Listen, Laugh. One of these days I'm gonna post an extensive review of all the ringtones I've bought for my Ericsson T610.

Robert Smith Vs. Morrissey

"[Moz] was constantly saying horrible things about The Cure," Smith tells Entertainment Weekly. "In the end, I kind of snapped and started retaliating. And it turned into some kind of petty feud.
