"You Should Have Been Nice To Me"
(Morrissey/Boz Boorer)


This song must have been written at some point in 1994. An instrumental or vocal version (sources contradict themselves) was recorded in December 1994 at Miraval Studios in France, with Boz Boorer (guitar), Alain Whyte (guitar), Johnny Bridgwood (bass) and Woodie Taylor (drums). If the version recorded at Miraval was indeed just an instrumental, then the vocal version was recorded either in January 1995 at Abbey Road studios in London, or at Hook End Manor the following March-April alongside most of the material from the "Southpaw Grammar" album (although it never made the album). In either of the latter two 1995 scenarios, the producer was Steve Lillywhite and Spencer Cobrin replaced Woodie Taylor at the drums.
