Marr suggests a Christmas single to relaunch the Smiths - BBC Newsnight

Not sure if this news has done the rounds yet but ... in another recent TV interview, Marr talks about the prospect of the Smiths coming back with a Christmas single! (5:35)
I reckon Marr deserves top marks for handling all the questions about the Smiths reforming with humour and diplomacy.

Agree with you and thanks for this, Maurice. The more I see of him, the more I like Johnny. Fantastic footage, and great to see Marr poking fun at it all (with great warmth as usual).

Yeah, funny.
But maybe not as unlikely as it seems. o_O
Not money-wise, but what in fact would be the objection against it, and from who?
Not from Moz, he would have a laugh. The money Joyce would be getting from it would be peanuts anyway, compared to what he already took from Moz and Johnny.

And Moz and Johnny know that the issue of a possible reunion and the questions about that will be there forever, even after they both closed their eyes. So why not ?
And it would draw some attention again to their music and career, and fitting to moz his strategy to get a deal with a label.
Could be something from Johnny's vault, or even an reissue of an, in his view, neglected Smiths song.
Polishing it up, remaster, etcetera, etcetera.
Let me see, what song would rise to the occasion?
What about " Vicar In A Tutu" ? :)
Anyone?

Panic with overdubbed sleigh bells, like a proper 70s Christmas record.

At times when I watch these interviews, it seems like HE is really wanting a reunion....

I think he'd be more open to it than Morrissey, but I also think it's a bit like someone apparently hankering after being back with their old boyfriend or girlfriend, but what they really want is to be 23 again. If you reunited the Smiths, what you ended up with wouldn't actually be the Smiths, and I suspect Johnny is aware of that.

A Christ-myth single? I guess sales of his book weren't as good as he hoped for. :(

oh Johnny ! stop stoking that flame ! It's just dead cold ashes anyway.

Johnny is a sweet guy with a great sense of humor. I enjoyed this little video quite a bit. Thanks for sharing :)

Put a bell around my neck

oh let me be ...your reindeer.


with loads of bells. All profits going to charities for animals or even humans in distress.

Well, that would be lovely, babies.
But will only happen in dreams I suppose.
