    Musically it's an ambitious song! I bet he sings it beautifully. And it answers people fears about retirement, don't you think?

    I've read elsewhere that venues are strict on video phones in Japan, which good because your view isn't obscured by hundreds of glowing screens, but a shame because we might not get to see this... Hopefully someone captured it and will post it online.

    I'd rather him sing "Work Is Four Letter Word" by Cilla Black than this garbage.

    I doubt Mozzer's version even touches the hem of Burly Chassis's dress but then I'm probably biased.

    Reading over the lyrics...

    "And I believe
    Everything on this earth
    Having meaning and worth
    Made of concrete and air
    Is to share and to feel

    ...

    When I go
    I'll go out empty hand
    Leaving dust to the land
    Just the soul I have found
    Leaves the ground"

    Not TOO much of a stretch that he could've used these passages as inspiration for "Glamorous Glue." Unless that's already been blatantly pointed out, and I just missed it.

    Until now, I have never seen this song referenced as a source of inspiration for Glamorous Glue but yeah, there's no way it's a coincidence.

    i also noticed;

    "To describe on the list
    Of someone
    With a place in the sun"

    a small thing

    I agree, no way that's a coincidence. Good catch!

    I really can't wait to hear Morrissey's verision of this song and think that it's so interesting that it was probably used as inspiration for the lyrics to "Glamorous Glue."

    I wonder if the music as performed by Morrissey's band is mellow like in the original or if it was more rockin'. And will it be a track on the new album (whenever that materializes) or will it be a B-side or neither?

    So many questions...:cool:

    I feel like he might be into the song because Shirley Bassey performed it - I don't think he's ever advocated Frankie Valli. It's like "Simon Smith" - he liked Alan Price's version, not the original Randy Newman version.
    But, while we're on the topic, was "To Give" in "Jersey Boys"? I can't remember, it's been a few years.

    Heard this yesterday at Tokyo Zepp and not having read about the previous Japan shows (which I couldn't attend unfortunately) I honestly thought this was a new Morrissey song. The lyrics and vocal melody were so like him, so I don't know how much he changed. Will watch the original FV video and compare.

    That's very interesting.
    The Shirley Bassey connection does make alot of sense, as how it was used as the intro video a few years back.

    And no, "To Give" is not in "Jersey Boys".
