There is NO such thing as a decent cover of a morrissey track.:(It is sacrilege and goes against all the laws of decency. DOWN with Moz covers!!
 
I went with Other.
Morrissey, that is:p

I generally have no problems with Smiths/Moz covers, some of them are quite exciting. Placebo did a fine job with "Bigmouth Strikes Again". Kirsty Maccoll's "You Just Haven't Earned It Yet, Baby" is even better than the original i think.

With "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" I just can't decide between the cover versions by The Divine Comedy and Neil Finn, and I have no time to listen to all the others, so I didnt vote.

I have a funny little CD by a band (project?) called "The Ukrainians" - with folksy covers of "Bigmouth Strikes Again", "The Queen Is Dead", "Meat Is Murder" and "What Difference Does It Make" - sung in Ukrainian. Lovely.

Smiths/Moz songs are no holy cows.

I've heard them do Bigmouth and they're great! I'd vote for them.

You don't look it!! Trust me.....Though I am not near 40....my mom who is a year younger than Moz, said that her 40's are some of her best year's yet! Of course there was a bit of a breakdown, but after that, she's lovin it!

LOL...I do have glasses, but they serve me right...! :D

What's a wolf whistle?? :p

The Divine Comedy.

I don't think it's amazing or anything, but it's better than the rest, and their music is always fantastic
