      I do. I didn't think it was going to be a big career booster as much as I hoped, a creative reboot. The most commercially accessible cover, Chain Gang, is not even part of this (isn't that a bit odd?). As to why he wanted to do a covers album in the first place, we still don't know. Is this to fulfill his BMG contract or something like that?

      Morrissey letter to the editor: "After witnessing Johnny Thunders & the Heartbreakers live, my much revered Carly Simon, Loudon Wainwright, Jefferson Airplane, Buff Sainte-Marie, New York Dolls, Phil Ochs and Patti Smith albums are presently smouldering on a low light. Don't talk to me about any band but the Heartbreakers because I just won't listen - these boys are newer than the New Wave and (surprise!) they can play! What's even more amazing is that the Heartbreakers' music is both memorable and professional, something which is seemingly least expected from a New Wave band. The seventies start here. Steven Morrissey, Kings Rd, Stretford, Manchester. PS: I work for the Inland Revenue - am I still allowed to be a punk?"

      I love all of Morrissey's choices and can hardly wait to hear all of those wonderful words and thoughts and feelings sung through Morrissey's voice and soul!

      Some say I got devil? Will he sing "I'm just a girl in danger"? Just curious...

      I think it would have to be advertised as such, otherwise many people would leave the venue pretty upset. Not that this has deterred Morrissey from presenting some fairly questionable setlists over the years, of course.

      He seems to be going through that part of life where you revisit your youth. I mean he’s been doing covers live for a while now so I don’t think it’s a contract filler. I think he’s just interested in exploring this rumination of his past. The list of the lost images and videos the covers the current dress style the video recreations etc. He’s taking stock of himself and his life through music and art. I think he’s made clear that he’s not gonna appeal for the kids attention in such a way no matter what. If he was he’d have taken the gorillaz collaboration offer. His health scares and issues as well as the way he talks about his hair and appearance to me suggest a man who’s aware of entering another stage in life and is contemplating it

      The Jobriah & Dionne Warwicks tracks were two of the songs he had in mind when he first contacted Siouxsie with the view to record a duet with her around the recording of Your Arsenal.

      My wife is going to shit herself when she hears Our Steven's version of "Wedding Bell Blues"... she's not a fan of the Mozzer but has to live with the fact that her husband is a Smiths/Moz fan.

      Which goes to show... either for records or for shows he chooses what pleases him.

      This is a great example of just that.


      FOLKS TAKE NOTE !

      Ummm. OK. So, Morrissey is covering Joni Mitchell - despite her oft-stated love of veal, seal and blood pudding?

      Not a huge amount of integrity in the man or his fans, is there?
