    The reason why gypsy music and jewish music sound the same is because according to romanichals the jews are gypsies too. They have the same taste which means no taste cause bling-bling is so no-no for anyone with some taste.
    Only they will sport gold and decorate their homes with it. While the rest of the world moved on to white gold they keep their yellowish gold.

    Oh, so it's not just a poor-quality rip? It legitimately sounds like this on a good record player?

    It does sound kind of like all the instruments were recorded together and then he did his part , like a person singing along with a cassette boombox and it's the best thing I've heard off of the new stuff. I was going along with the "Indian sound" but I think the "gypsy" suggestion changed my mind. Maybe he bought a cassette at a truckstop in Romania and recorded this on the bus on his vintage tape-to-tape machine.

    It reminds me a little bit of 'The Devil went down to Georgia.'

    It strongly reminds me of a song by another band but I've not remembered which one yet

    My view is that the ‘I thought you was dead’ refrain is supposed to be the voice of jo-average on the street - regional accent - remarking (on a chance encounter) that he thought Moz was dead; possibly a track that harks back from just after the ‘wilderness period’ after Maladjusted.
    The other bits are Moz’s inner thoughts about finally finding himself, being an established artist.
    I’ve only listened to the song once and scanned down the lyrics in this thread, but that is how this song feels to me at the initial stages of listening

    I’m feeling the same. The intro is strongly reminiscent of ‘the Secret Life of Arabia from Bowie’s “Heroes”. The verse sounds like something I can’t quite put my finger on. I think I’m reminded of something punky. Possibly something by Siouxsie

    Sounds like he's been recorded singing in the bath. Abysmal.

    Edit (April 14): with the clear sound rip now appeared in the Download section I have to admit the song is „so nice!“ :)

    I quite like the song: a spirited b-side and definitely better than the new songs on LIHS deluxe. But is the recording really this bad on the 7-inch too? Surely this should have deserved a proper recording?

    More like he is sitting in his hot tub outside, with his band dressed up like gipsys playing the tune and hm humming along.

    Nice song. Reminds of a couple of Smith’s songs in the rhythm and the drums especially. Weird production choices though with the vocal a bit to buried or drowned out

    Wow. First Morrissey song I love since.... well, VERY long time ago. Nice arrangement, production, no nonsense lyrics. Should have been a new lead single.

    Morrissey - I Thought You Were Dead

    Now I grow and unfold
    there are many sides to the soul
    And not just one
    I thought you was dead

    Content
    With my own thoughts
    In my own head
    That's because I thought you was dead

    And it was so nice
    So nice
    It's all been, it's all been
    So nice
    It's been so

    Happy now
    Open wide
    Everything in its place and time
    Now it's mine
    I hoped you was dead

    Genial
    To the last
    Leave the past in the past
    This means you
    I thought you was dead

    And it was so nice "Oh so or not so
    So nice One me and one you
    It's all been, it's all been Sea breeze and sky blue
    So nice, nice Very(?) so or isn't so"
    It's been
    It's all been so nice, it's all been so...

    Moz spoken word VOICE over while chorus above:
    "Oh so or not so
    One me and One you
    Sea breeze and sky blue
    very(?) so or isn't so"

    Freedom now
    Never gloom
    Happiness all afternoon
    Can't you get this in your thick head?

    It's all gone
    Peace won
    Five words spurred me on
    I thought you was dead

    And it was so nice
    So nice
    It's all been so nice
    It was so nice, so nice
    So...

    Moz spoken word:
    "To have had something
    taken to ????
    no wonder there's tears
    in your eyes."
