    Sparks song listed on ASCAP site with Morrissey as performer

    Was just looking on the ASCAP site for listings for the new songs and accidentally searched 'Morrissey' as performer rather than writer. One of the songs that came up was Sparks' 'Arts And Crafts Spectacular'. Presumably this means Morrissey has recorded a cover version? I'm not au-fait with...

    http://www.nme.com/photos/hail-hail-rocknroll/154770/13/1 The above link goes to a supposed 'amazing fact' that Thom Yorke's lyrics contain 17 references to cars/driving as well as some to boats, motorways, trains, planes and tanks. If that's supposedly obessed, Moz must be clinically...
