While perusing on this site through unreleased Morrissey songs the title "I Was Bully, Do Not Forget Me" particularly struck us, hence we penned this song "When I Was Bully" to imagine, through our own sound, what Morrissey may have done with that title. We hope it stands as a humble but original and creative tribute to Morrissey.
The video for the resultant song can be viewed here, filmed in Manchester:
The lyrics are here:
'Watching the world burn
I once was so moral in my immoral way
my cold Irish heart had a name
When I Was Bully
"Every-time I moved, I'd quash something"
There are diseases, worse yes than diseases
aches which don't even ache in one's soul
my cold Manchester heart had a name
When I Was Bully
Every-time I moved, I'd quash something loathsome
As the bombs get bigger
but the brains they burn stay the same
despite every threesome...
Comment from Alain : "Been getting asked what Morrissey song did we do. This is the track we covered. Sounds pretty great considering it is live and not our own back line. The amps belonged to the Lucky Strike house band who are red hot. Please share and let everyone know. We will be playing really soon so keep a eye out for Stadium."
Also, an interview at the link posted by Jimmy / Facebook:
It’s no secret that Chris Gethard is a huge fan of The Smiths. After all, he’s got Smiths lyrics tattooed on his arm, as well as the signature of the band’s singer, Morrissey. It’s why, when he came to Chicago to perform at our comedy festival, we figured we’d put that knowledge to the test. Facing off against two Smiths/Morrissey fans, Gethard attempts to become the undisputed superfan that all others should bow to. Can he do it?
