The Isley Brothers' Behind A Painted Smile- joyous, guitar led soul with wonderful vocals from 1968. It does that 60s happy/sad thing as well as any other northern soul record from that time. In an interview last year Johnny Marr said this was a huge influence on him and Morrissey when The Smiths started. That Isley guitar line could easily fit on This Charming Man.
