    28. Morrissey – “Back on the Chain Gang”
    Single
    Sounds Like: The greatest fucking song The Smiths never wrote.

    Key Lyric: “A circumstance beyond our control, oh oh oh oh/ The phone, the TV and the news of the world”

    Why Song Matters: Few artists ever truly run away with someone else’s song, no matter how good their cover may be, but Morrissey hijacked The Pretenders’ legendary anthem this year. It all started when the song first began appearing in his setlists, and now that he’s parading it around like a single, it’s as if it’s always been a part of his catalog. You know, like the Berenstain Bears/Mandela Effect. –Michael Roffman
