Morrissey Alma Matters


Who Put the M in Manchester? Retrieved October 29, There was an error. The term is also used in connection with the Virgin Mary, as well as a term used in ancient rome for the mother goddess and more Eddy Grant Love in the modern era as the anthem for a University or educational establishment.

Very good try. But "alma" is spanish for soul, so he is singing that to someone, somewhere soul matters. Flag ivonnedi on November 18, Mickthe Manc Sorry mate, that's funny but not true! Flag kexpseattle on September 11, General Comment 'Alma Mater' is latin for 'nurturing mother', the pun here i think is that, in this case, the mother is overly nuturing and he wants freedom. Alma matters" - to someone an overly nurturing mother is something they have never had and perhaps need or want, but morrissey just wants to be left to ruuin his life his own way.

Banksk Alma is spanish for soul. So he's meaning "soul matters". General Comment A measly 8 comments under this song!? Musically this is one of Morrissey's finest songs and definitely one of my favourites but I guess there is not much lyrics to work with.

The title is obviously a play on the term Alma Mater which means "Nourishing Mother". The term is also used in connection with the Virgin Mary, as well as a term used in ancient rome for the mother goddess and more commonly in the modern era as the anthem for a University or educational establishment.

Morrissey was obviously a big fan and used Delaney's photo on the album cover artwork for Louder Than Bombs and also for the single Girlfriend in a Coma while he was in The Smiths. The play itself was hard hitting drama with a frank social commentary on single parenthood, poverty, class, race, gender and sexual orientation. It tells the story of Jo, a seventeen-year-old working class girl, and her mother, Helen, who is presented as crude and sexually indiscriminate.

Helen leaves Jo alone in their new flat after she begins a relationship with Peter, a rich lover who is younger than her.

At the same time Jo begins a romantic relationship with Jimmy, a black sailor. He proposes marriage but then goes to sea, leaving Jo pregnant and alone. She finds lodgings with a homosexual acquaintance, Geoffrey, who assumes the role of surrogate father. Helen returns after leaving her lover and the future of Jo's new home is put into question".

In my opinion then Morrissey's title and play on the term "Alma Mater" or Nourishing Mother is an ironic one. The mother in this play was a working class alcoholic who pursued frivilous love affairs with little regard for her teenage daughter Jo who she abandons for a young rich lover.

Therefore this song is a simple one written from the viewpoint of Jo's character claiming that "to someone somewhere" a caring and nurturing mother may be something or someone they need but not her!

Thanks, PrettyPettyThief, for sharing your opinion, and I agree this is a fabulous tune musically. Nonetheless Alma Maters sits up at the top of my play list, for its musical freedom, so far.

Your interpretation helped quite a bit. Wayne Flag AbelMagwitch on August 30, General Comment well, "alma" means "soul" I think, this is just Morrissey stating self-acceptance, he doesn't care what people think and he may as well be himself, because the right one will love him for exactly who he is. Basically, my SOUL matters to somebody out there I think it's rather magical.

No Replies Log in to reply. General Comment Alma is spanish for soul. So to someone, somewhere soul matters. General Comment I wouldn't say it's his weakest, probably his second weakest album. I think the weakest is generally considered to be "Kill Uncle" which really didn't have any good songs except "Last Of The Family Line".

Maladjusted starts with it's brilliant title track, then onto this and then onto my favourite "Trouble Loves Me" and finally finishes with the rather splendidly bombastic "Satan Rejected My Soul". I'm not quite sure what this song is about, but the verses do seem quite open in making it clear that he will not be told how to lead his life. It's all quite negatively phrased. General Comment "Anyway, it's your life, ruin it your own way. General Comment I really love this song I like the uptempo-ness to it and especially the lines "It's my life to ruin my way".
