    HELP! Ive searches high and low and still cannot find just one song that was on the pre-show videos played before the gig (and assuming they are the same on every show). It was a male band, around 5 if them. Lead singer looked like he was late 20s, bit of a rockabilly quiff. Sounded like a rockabilly type song but not quite if that makes sense, quite fast paced. It wasn’t The Ramones, Pistols etc. that were on too. Any help appreciated as it’s driving me crackers! Thanks, Davey.

    Thank you, anonymous hero! I won't say how much I tried to sift through various search results from "British drag comedian" to no avail.
    Here's the David Hoyle clip:

    update after watching the videos again in Brighton: the actress in the film clip in #7 seems to say "We're rich. We're infamous... And we're miserable." Still not sure what film it is from though.

    For #12, the film is a montage from the original Frankenstein (1931), but I don't see the clips put together with Sally's Song anywhere online. My guess is most of the video choices are Morrissey's recollections of old music videos, Top of the Pops performances, and what he has found clicking around on Youtube :)

    Someone needs to tell him that that final clip he plays with the shrieking 'Lipsynka' is awful and overdone now.

    I agree, it is. But you don't see it often enough, so block it out your mind .

    I was about to ask the same question having been at the RAH last night. I should have known, I am aware of Robert Gordon.

    Hi I wondered if anyone could give me insight into this intro that Moz put on with all the different clips. I gathererd that some of them were iconic (e.g queen is dead) but was there some sort of running theme between each clip? I saw him at Ally Pally last night and was intrigued to know why he picked those videos. Especially as all in all it took about an hour. Thanks :)

    I don't think there's any running theme. They're all videos/music Morrissey likes in some way. The clips vary from tour to tour, but some have stayed and been a part of the compilation for years now. Lists of the videos (and before they were videos, there were just songs) from previous tours can be found by searching the forums here and some have been collected on youtube if you search for "Morrissey intermission" or "Morrissey pre-show." They're a special part of each Morrissey show and give a glimpse into his tastes and influences.

    Mikael did some great work compiling and sharing the lists & MP3s of the music from 1991-2007. It evidences pretty much no real theme to the choice of tour music throughout the years.
    You can view the lists of songs in this thread from 10yrs ago here:
    https://www.morrissey-solo.com/threads/morrissey-intermission-music-1991.85366/
    The music links are long dead, but can be shared again if needed.
    Regards,
