I Know it's Over
from the album 'The Queen is Dead' by The Smiths.
This project is based on the song I Know It’s Over by The Smiths and is the second piece in The Music Series. I knew the second piece would be based on The Smiths but picking through their extensive catalogue of great music was no easy task.



It’s hard to fully express why I went with IKIO but a listen to the song with it’s strong lyrics, the beautifully played instruments and the emotion evident in Morrissey’s voice has made this song a favourite of mine since I first bought The Queen is Dead at 14.



I was inspired by the idea of a playing card as I thought it would tie in perfectly with this work due to the title of the album IKIO is on. Furthermore, creating a playing card is an idea I’ve wanted to explore for a couple of years.
