    He acquiring a very nice brides album. This, by the time, blue dreamers eyes, the low in high school bonus songs and the world peace bonus songs would make a nice compilation come the time

    This is a great song. Definitely one of my favorites. So nice :)

    The soul has many sides, so true.

    Thanks a lot for posting the HQ audio rip and the lyrics.

    It is a better song because it actually has a tune that sticks in your head after a couple of listenings.
    It's strange to see Jesse credited as co-writer: I just can't imagine him composing world music.

    The last few 'exclusive' RSD bits and bobs I can remember made it on to This Is Morrissey, so it may well happen.
    Never say never...
    The couple of YouTube only tracks really need a digital existence too - Blue Dreamers Eyes especially.
    One thing I think a lot of people miss is a 'proper' single with a couple of new B-sides. Live tracks were all very well and good, but strong B-sides have been something, historically, that were worth tracking down. It doesn't quite feel the same with the clear vinyl releases IMHO.
    That all said, yes: I'd suspect some tracks to appear digitally (but not on CD if the BMG rumour is true).
    Regards,

    I find it hard to believe that a big company like BMG would make a blanket decision to not release anything on CD after November 2019. Sure, CD is on its way out and there are more and more artists with whom a CD release doesn't make any financial sense -- but Morrissey is not one of them. Veteran artists and bands with a large middle-aged following definitely still sell enough CD's to make releasing them worthwhile.

    Well said. I personally don't want to see the CD format die until lossless digital formats like FLAC and hopefully hi-res DSD become the online music buying standard.

    I like it. It reminds me of the Monkees' "Your Auntie Grizelda".

    I really think this song meshes well with “By the time...” and “Blue Dreamers..”

    this song could also be about a manic phase of a person that hoped their depressive side has gone. But of course it keeps coming back.

    I’ve had this song in my head all day. It’s so catchy. I love the dark humour in the lyrics too. A bit of cleaning up in the studio and this would have made a great single, in my opinion.
