The self-titled album from which "It happens every time" is taken, is a very pop friendly album. This one is quite to the contrary. The song collection works better as a group than on their own, but
I agree, and see what you’re saying.
But Starsailor is still a classic that I feel should be in everyone’s collection. And like most great records should be listened to in one sitting.
I wouldn't mind hearing his version of "Song to a siren".
Unfortunately it is the one most covered. Usual suspect. Though there are far more interesting songs on Starsailor. Though like most Morrissey songs, others can’t really do them justice, so maybe for that reason, don’t even try.
