Morrissey-solo

Unofficial site features news, tour dates, information and fan forums focusing on the world of Morrissey and The Smiths

Stumbling through the deep, dark internet, I quite recently found the chanel 'The Ultimate Fahion History' run by Amanda Hallay and as in life things sometimes do fit together, she only yesterday provided a video about Morrissey, which I (kindly) want to share with you, although it tells nothing new to those who have already dissected every Morrissey photo/video in existence. More interesting is how casually she tells how she was best buddies with him and recorded a song with the Smiths once... Anyway, back to his oversized women's shirts! Also: Amanda Hall(w)ay=Janice Long?

The absolute best of The Smiths: All 70 songs ranked by Slicing Up Eyeballs’ readers - Slicing Up Eyeballs

"And now for Round 2 of our Slicing Up Eyeballs readers’ ranking: After tackling the much larger, and decades-spanning, catalog of The Cure, we’ve turned to The Smiths in an effort to sort the 70 original songs released during that band’s comparatively brief lifespan.

A quick refresher: We asked readers to vote for up to 25 of their favorite songs written by Morrissey/Marr, choosing from a ballot that listed 70 singles, B-sides and album tracks. Not included: live recordings and covers, of which there were two (“Golden Lights” and “Work is a Four-Letter Word”)....
Morrissey content in interview with Stephen Duffy from the latest Classic Pop magazine…..quite funny if not quite believable in so many ways!!

Q: And then you worked with Robbie Williams (on 2005’s Intensive Care album):

A: Luckily, we were both on the same medication and both incredibly depressed. He was listening to a lot of Smiths –he was a massive Morrissey fan. We were going to do the Brits one year, Robbie and Morrissey, a duet of Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better. We ended up doing Angels with Joss Stone. That sums it up: one minute you’re going to be doing something extraordinary, the next you’re doing the worst terrible thing.

Late last year, my dear friend Jennifer Moon Kelly lost a long battle with colon cancer. Days before she passed, she got to meet our hero, Morrissey. He was a true gentleman and treated her with kindness and love.
A week later, he spoke of her passing and dedicated “One of Our Own” to her at the same venue where she saw him for the last time. Part of his dedication was used for the intro to this mix.

Morrissey, Moon, this is for you. https://www.mixcloud.com/jeremymonsayac/morrisseymoon-tribute-vol-1/



If you enjoy this mix, please consider donating to her favorite charity, the WunderGlo Foundation, which is dedicated to eradicating colon cancer, via the link below, or donate to your favorite charity.
