Morrissey A-Z: "It's Over"


Reverse Ferret
I like the song & it's a great version but I suspect it's part of him being criticised out of being himself. His technical imperfections are genius.

An interesting one as Morrissey was very open about how challenging the vocal was for him. I think he did a great job elevating what's essentially a good song. As @Gregor Samsa said, it's a style that I wouldn't mind him exploring more.


Probably the weakest version on 'California Sun'. It's pleasant enough, and Morrissey does a decent vocal - but unfortunately he doesn't get anywhere close to the swooning brilliance of Orbison's original vocal, and the music arrangement isn't different enough to give this a unique selling point. The worst aspect is that in the original song, it builds and builds to that big final note - which Morrissey clearly can't do as he doesn't even attempt it, so it ends in a very underwhelming fashion. (5 out of 10.)
