(HQ digital stereo remaster) Finally a high quality logo- and title-free copy of this video. Made by BBC Riverside and originally shown on 7 November 1983, it was widely used to promote the single instead of the "Tyne Tees TV" version used on the 1992 video compilation "The Complete Picture" (which isn't).
"This Charming Man" is a song by the English rock band The Smiths, written by guitarist Johnny Marr and singer/lyricist Morrissey. It was released as the group's second single in October 1983 on the independent record label Rough Trade. The song is defined by Marr's jangle pop guitar riff and Morrissey's characteristically morose lyrics, which revolve around the recurrent Smiths themes of sexual ambiguity and lust.
