    Morrissey A-Z: "Kick the Bride Down the Aisle"

    Ah - it seems my original comment was as oblique as the lyrics - yes, I like the song, both musically and lyrically.

    Morrissey A-Z: "Kick the Bride Down the Aisle"

    I am surprised by the range of comments on this one, as if we are all listening to a different song!I suppose our differing interpretations of Kick The Bride Down The Aisle highlight Morrissey's honed skill for managing to load a heavy dose of ambiguity into his lyrics. Given Morrissey's...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Judy Is a Punk"

    Morrissey’s love of Judy Is A Punk is of course well known, so I suppose it was inevitable that he would eventually formally release a live recording of the song. While the original song is fine for me (when I am in a certain mood) - I just don’t feel like Morrissey’s live cover really adds...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Jacky's Only Happy When She's Up on the Stage"

    Very true @Flibberty - I hope we can both agree however that You're The One For Mr, Fatty is a much better single that Jacky's Only Happy When She's Up On The Stage? :)

    Morrissey A-Z: "Jacky's Only Happy When She's Up on the Stage"

    A strong enough little number, Jacky’s Only Happy When She’s Up On The Stage is good, but one can see a sad trend here; in this enjoyable alphabetised romp we, yesterday and the day before, enjoyed two timeless classics – both B-Sides. Today we have a song penned some 25 years later which pales...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Jack the Ripper"

    The truly glorious Jack The Ripper is one of those rare songs that just gets better with each listen – no mean feat when it was released almost thirty years ago. Such a sinister, haunting number – is it purely about Jack the Ripper, is there an autobiographical element here – will we ever know...

    Morrissey A-Z: "It's Over"

    Morrissey’s vocals on It’s Over are, of course, beautiful and the production sounds, to these untrained ears, faultless. But as to the song itself, neither this or the original really does a great deal for me – it is… nice. I suppose this sentiment reflects my overall position with California...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Irish Blood, English Heart"

    After over six years in the wilderness, after poor Morrissey’s soul had been rejected by Satan, our favourite Mancunian took it upon himself to spend even longer in the desert – hoping perhaps for Satan to return to him for further temptations? The years rolled by, Y2K came and went and many...

    Morrissey Central "MORRISSEY BLOOD, MORRISSEY HEART" (April 26, 2021)

    "Violence By Design" - sounds like something Morrissey would have had etched on a run-out groove back around the time of The Last Of The Famous International Playboys...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Interlude" (with Siouxsie)

    When Morrissey is one of ones life mentors, being irked for 27 years With Morrissey as one of my spiritual mentors in life I have learnt that being irked for 27 years isn’t all that hard. I was taught by the best! :)

    Morrissey A-Z: "Interlude" (with Siouxsie)

    Being an obsessive Morrissey fan and passable fan of Siouxsie Sioux, I was intrigued and excited when I heard way back when that these two legends would perform a ‘duet’. I wasn't familiar with the original Timi Yuro version of Interlude at the time, so still had high hopes when I heard further...

    Morrissey Central "PEOPLE POWER" (April 25, 2021)

    Yes right you are – the words seemed familiar, but my memory was fogged by the offensive image in question! Of course (and I think almost everyone would agree with you) Morrissey associating himself with these cretins is shooting oneself in the foot; Guilt by implication, By association… I saw...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Interesting Drug"

    Ah… it is a pleasure to extricate ourselves form the admittedly wonderful but somewhat narcissistic list of songs whose titles stated with I’m! There was quite a lot to get through. I haven’t seem the Interesting Drug video in years – it is a bit of a confusing mess, but enjoyable enough. As...

    Morrissey Central "PEOPLE POWER" (April 25, 2021)

    Indeed @BookishBoy ! Perhaps it is my curmudgeonly nature (a worrying development in itself), but any (yawn) controversial statement this sheep is trying to propagate is lost by his own inability to spell. In Britain recognise is spelt with an ‘s’ – anything else is imperialist propaganda! :)...

    Morrissey A-Z: "I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris"

    I’m Throwing My Arms Around Paris; a pleasant enough pop-ish song and yes, memorable enough - but it is not one of my favourites. Sandwiched between the wonderful bruiser that is All You Need is Me and the similarly boisterous Something Is Squeezing My Skull, this anachronistic filler is not...

    Morrissey A-Z: "(I'm) The End of the Family Line"

    If Morrissey alluded in 1988 that he would never settle down to the mundane every day in Will Never Marry, three years later he clarified his position beyond doubt; even (gasp!) out of wedlock – having children would be out of the question. (I’m) The End Of The Family Line is a gentle and...

    Morrissey A-Z: "I'm Playing Easy to Get"

    Thank you @SuedeMoz for this insightful thread - such a wealth of information. I am a fan of Jobriath's work and recall that during Morrissey’s Attack years he released a Jobriath compilation, Lonely Planet Boy. That wound have been released around the same time as Morrissey penned I’m Playing...

    Morrissey A-Z: "I'm Playing Easy to Get"

    @Gregor Samsa – huzzah! Yes, that makes sense to me – Hollywood! (Please forgive my knowledge of Californian geography, having never been). The Cat & Fiddle appears to be in this part of town, along with a number of other spots which I imagine Morrissey would have visited regularly, including...

    Morrissey A-Z: "I'm Playing Easy to Get"

    I haven’t heard this in years – somehow, criminally, it wasn’t in my current collection - @BookishBoy – thank you for reminding me of its existence – you have made my day! Elusive gems like this reminds me of the wealth of live recordings and radio sessions that are out there – all worthy of...

    Morrissey A-Z: "I Wish You Lonely"

    An aside, and of course not Norway, but whenever I listen to The Teachers Are Afraid Of The Pupils I always expect and will Morrissey to change the line ‘To be finished would be a relied’ to ‘To be Finnish would be a relief.’ And then I wish he would sing this song, and amended line, at all...
