      Your PS has pre-empted my question, Joe. Is morning starship a rather blatant euphemism? Must be my mind, but I find I can't hear it any other way...

      Yes it must be about his cock after all that's all he ever sings about.

      It’s lovely though. Interesting with the updated twist and a modern drive to it.

      Been a fan ever since 91 when I saw Alain and Gary holding it up on the My Love Life ep. Was such a strange image had to hunt that record down and any other info (like old rock magazines) that I can find articles on about Jobriath.

      Though, I know what you’re saying about the original, there’s something special about it, that I don’t think could really be recreated.

      Funny, the ‘Boom Boom Boom’ you hear M singing at the end, could be...

      ‘Boone Boone Boone’

      or not.

      :)


      In 1974, Bruce Wayne Campbell, who legally changed his name to Jobriath Boone, attempted to be the first self-declared gay pop star...‘

      Yes, I suppose it is. But it's Morrissey's fault for singing about it in the first place.

      I agree mostly... but I'm very happy that Moz is making these songs his own. He can't be a better Orbison than Orbison, nor can he be a better Jobriath than Jobriath. That's what I hate the most usually about covers, especially when I feel quite intimately about the original: when it's simply imitation- trying to get as close as one can to the original. I don't need a bargain bin Frankie Lymon when I can listen to the real one etc.

      I don't think he was trying to reach the heights of Jobriath. He didn't attempt to have even a bit of the bite Jobriath has in this song. This isn't a tuppenny ha'penny Jobriath, it's Morrissey through and through, which is why I love it. I think it's marvelous.

      ‘Boone Boone Boone’

      Sweet idea; í shall take that from now on, every time í listen :thumb:

      í had thought that he might have been channeling his inner Basil Brush [{and that's not a euphemism}.

      Vocals are superb, just amazed at how good he sounds. But once again, a lousy production mires the track, everything besides the vocal sounds dull, lazy and aggressively modern.

      Yeah I know but why go to the trouble of finding a beautiful photo only to slap on crap font as if dropped from a height blindfolded?

      Pretty much; the fragrant Françoise was being filmed around London town for her French Christmas televison 'special' of 1965.
