Spending warm Summer days indoors
Writing frightening verse
To a buck-toothed girl in Luxembourg
Ask was released as a single in 1988. Like many Smiths tracks it wasn’t included on any original studio album. However, it can be found on some compilation albums. Controversy seems to define the Smiths, as guitarist Craig Gannon felt he should’ve been given writing credit for the song, but was snubbed. Kirsty Macoll, a standout singer/songwriter in Great Britain, sang background vocals on the track.
