Thread: YouTube Discoveries Thread

    Default YouTube Discoveries Thread

    I think it's worth collating these finds into one thread, and this YouTube account, which has nothing to do with me personally, has 182 Smiths/ Morrissey videos uploaded in the last three weeks, and counting. Many, but certainly not all, I've seen before, and then not all in their entirety as they are here.

    This Headmaster Ritual Version is fantastic. The video quality is so good, and Morrissey doesn't really seem like he's changed, love it!

    A very good pairing - "The Headmaster Ritual" and "The Confusions of Young Törless", by Robert Musil. I don't know the movie used to make the video ("Der junge Törless", 1966), but I know the book and the main character could have very well written such a song.

    This is a nice pairing.

    Did he sneak in "Stalk me" instead of "Stop me" at 40 seconds?

    Not sure, but it's interesting to hear the vague sounds of the guitars and drums in the background, and Morrissey's breathing, like at 0:53 on TCM Acapella. I also like the Funkdoobiest mash in a strange way

    From the same Youtube Channel, ThePriviligeIsMine, I found one of the more personal and touching Morrissey videos I've ever seen.
    It's a 5 minute documentary called "Back to the Old House" from 1985, wherein Moz takes viewers to some of his old childhood haunts. I only came across it a few months ago. Definitely worth a look if you haven't already seen it.

    Around 8.40 - Johnny says that "Stop Me..." is the crowning moment of his songwriting career.

    It's nice that he spoke so highly of it. There are one or two others I like more, now, but "Stop Me" was the song that changed my life and made me a Smiths apostle forever. Great tune. I'm glad he looks back on it as fondly as he does (even if he might have changed his mind the next day, as the interviewer joked).

    Bernard Butler was wonderful in Suede. Would have been fantastic as a Morrissey collaborator, maybe post-Street, but as you can plainly see in the interview he would have been seen as a copycat of Marr. The press and critics would have savaged them.

    I must have listened to "Stop Me.." hundreds of times over the years, and on each listen I still laugh the moment Moz gets to "shy bald Buddhist..". Every single time. It's simply one of the best lines he's ever written, and as Marr says, the vocal melody is brilliant. It's lovely to see Johnny praising him openly - for a moment there I thought he was going to start banging on about "Get The Message" - and sweet to see Butler trying (and failing) to hide his fanboy enthusiasm. Suede were always undermined by the critics as a "Smiths lite" or Smiths for the 90s, but hell...since when was that a bad thing!

    I always found them very different. The Anderson/Butler Suede did the sex thing a lot better than The Smiths ever did. But, unlike The Smiths, they came across as utterly humorless. Anderson took himself too seriously. To me those things really set them apart from The Smiths and I never regarded them as clones, despite some of the obvious parallels.

    Butler's work on "Dog Man Star" was tremendous, though, and it's a shame they couldn't go on developing.
