Now My Heart Is Full

"Now My Heart Is Full" is a song by British singer Morrissey from his fourth solo album Vauxhall and I. The song's refrain of "Dallow, Spicer, Pinkie, Cubitt" addresses the gangsters from Graham Greene's 1938 novel Brighton Rock and so has a thematic link with Morrissey's 1989 song about the Kray twins "The Last of the Famous International Playboys".[2] In an interview published in Les Inrockuptibles in 1995, Morrissey stated "This song was the definitive expression of my change to adulthood, of my maturity. And, to be honest, I was very happy to be able to sing this text, to have reached this state. After this song I could perfectly retire: I've come full circle." [3]

Ned Raggett of AllMusic wrote "Morrissey's quiet purr at the start turns into one of his best, most soaring performances by the end."[1]
