      his voice is so wonderful, i’ve never heard it this clear before. i just think it would add to it if it were slightly less produced but oh well he’s incredible.

      I adore this, it is the best thing he has released in a while. Never did I imagine that he would own this song in this way.

      I feel like this is my 'thing' now haha, so here - for whoever would like it - is my alternate artwork (incorporating colour gradient from the original Jobriath album sleeve) :)

      Any chance you could create a version with Morrissey, Morning Starship, the stereo logo and the 45rpm etched into the steps? No colour or anything else.

      That's mad. Nobody could defend the lazy way half decent artwork is mangled by whichever bin collector in Moz's camp looks after the album and single covers these days. It makes Bowie's shite cover for The Next Day look like a Rembrandt.

      My software's pretty basic... that's an annoying photo for making font stand out on!

      Does your software allow you to zoom in? If so, you wouldn't need to use a font. You could 'graffiti' the steps.

      Thanks for posting the links to both the Morrissey cover and the original.
      Not being very familiar with the original, Morrissey's version sounds has the familiar feel of a Morrissey song, which means he has soehow made it his own. And that is a good thing.
      But compared to the original, his version sounds a bit tame, missing some of the excitement of the original. That being said, Morrissey's voice is more pleasant to listen to.
      And the music of the original sounds dated (clearly 70s opéra rock), but I really love it. Band & producer could have gone full blast on this one (in the style of Art Hounds).
      I probaby need to give it a few more listenings, preferably not back to back with the original.

      Can someone explain the lyrics? Is 'morning starship' a euphamism for 'morning wood'? :squiffy:

      thats my thought

      Well this line, 'The girl the girl the girl had flown my morning starship', reminds me of The Beatles' Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown). So, maybe they did the deed, she did but he didn't?

      'She's gone away what can I do'

      You've gotta do, what you've gotta do...

      But yeah, Jobriath was gay, so 'she' becomes 'he'.
