    That is absolutely awful!
    I wonder how many of the people who do these covers are members of this site? Lol.

    The title showing up on the video pretty much ruins the joke...I hate Youtube for doing that.

    But your analysis was perfect, it was like he had never heard the song. :squiffy:

    But Davie's right. I love listening to covers but there are some nitpicky bastards on here.

    For Christ's sake. It's terrible. Is this guy a Soloer? I don't hope so.

    These are fans showing that they "love" Morrissey (or whatever they're showing, it doesn't matter) and it should be judged that way?

    Say that you are with a friend or acquaintance and they pick up a guitar and play a rough attempt at Sunny or whatever. I imagine that you'd be pretty forgiving and glad to hear it, just for fun. It didn't happen spontaneously, they had to work on it a while, and they probably would like some sort of, if not encouragement, then kindness, as Davie puts it.

    I see this as being the same thing. It's a tribute and it's informal. It's like folk music, the song is there in basic form but everyone puts their own spin on it. It's about the emotional release or expression and simply participating.

    I was going to say that it's not like they are promoting themselves as a professional act but even if they were, they would find out eventually if that's possible. Some of them probably are not as good as they think they are, but some might be better. Some might be internalizing the things they learn from copying Morrissey's songs and write some of their own.

    I just hate people being discouraged from doing their thing. There are better targets to mock than amateur musicians unless it's Paris Hilton.

    I don't guess it's bad. It's good.
    Bad is VH's signature.

    Because it's a memorial service in memory of Morrissey's career, of course...
