      Does he have the range to keep up with Dionne Warwick?

      that is a tough song,they could lower the key maybe? or LP will sing or back him up on those parts ?

      Yeah it’s what I think. I don’t expect animal rights activists to disown and attack every meat eater they know or to judge them solely on that one aspect of there being

      I was thinking the same. That it’s possible that this would be one of the songs she appears on

      Only looking forward to 1/3 of this album...

      SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN
      IT'S OVER
      WEDDING BELL BLUES
      LADY WILLPOWER

      The rest are just absolute shit. Out of all the great things he could have covered by Dylan he picks the one that screams “See? I’m not racist!” Fucking Hell.

      He's perverse enough to do either.

      I did say he would do Roy Orbison. Do I get a cookie?

      the Man in Black- Roy Orbison covered on it...for this song I would buy it, no matter what the others are [it's OK, b.t.w.]

      It's over, goosebumbs

      I can’t believe there’s no Elvis or Frank... I am so utterly disappointed in this. BUT! I am sure the album’s great. Top marks for originality!

      Yeah, and no NY Dolls or Ramones - ones I thought we'd see. Maybe he didn't want to repeat himself? He's covered NY Dolls, Elvis (Smiths & solo), Bowie, and Ramones live. I'm hoping at some point we hear what his connection is to each of these songs.

      Sinatra would be interesting - I don't think he's ever covered him. Any song in particular you think would be a good choice? It couldn't be an obvious one.

      Have you heard the song Cycles? I think it’s from 1968. From the album of the same name. It is stunning in its simplicity and melancholy. It would be a perfect fit for Moz.
      Would also love a cover of Glen Campbell’s By the Time I Get to Phoenix (also covered by Frank, btw).

      Great choice on Cycles - didn't know it but just heard it. I could totally see it as a good cover for Morrissey.

      I reckon a classic American artists (except for one) covers album by the All-American California Son. Tim Hardin and Melanie? Blikey Uncle Steve, talk about deep cuts mate. I reckon me thinks "If I was a Carpenter" duet with Aunt Nancy would of been TOP ACE MENTAL. I reckon me thinks that you were going to cover "Under the Bridge" with John Frusciante but reckon that will come out later on the "Sunset Sound Sessions" and what the fek 'ell are you guys doing down there almost every day? Good on ya Uncle Steve mate inn nnn nnn nnn n n n n din't inn n nn n n n n it.

      Moz should have copied this.

      "my friends from college they're all married now
      They have their houses and their lawns
      They have their silent noons
      Tearful nights, angry dawns
      Their children hate them for the things they're not
      They hate themselves for what they are
      And yet they drink, they laugh
      Close the wound, hide the scar"

      Hopefully the sickos will listen to California Sun and get their act together.
