Songs Morrissey should cover

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by SOUTHPAW GEEZA, Jul 2, 2018.

  1. Here are some songs I think it would be interesting for him to cover.

    Kate Bush - Running up that hill (controversial choice I know)

    Four tops - same old song
    (Would love to hear his spin on a song like this)

    Blondie - Atomic
    (Think it would suit him, I think blondie and moz make a great musical match)

    Suede - Animal Nitrate
    (Would be interesting)

    Madonna - Borderline or Holiday
    (Would be funny)

    Paper dolls - Something here in my heart
    (Obvious choice)

    Billy Ocean - Carribean queen
    Rick Astley - Take me to your heart
    Pet shop boys - Domino dancing

    The decemberists - I was meant for the stage

    “I was meant for applause/ I was meant for derision/ nothing short of fate itself has affected my decision

    The Visconti-proposed "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" duet between him and Bowie would've been grand.

  9. Love that Enjoy the silence is a perfect choice, on the subject of Joni Mitchell maybe big yellow taxi too?

    I wholeheartedly agree! I think Big Yellow Taxi would actually be a much better choice. And considering he's a big fan of Joni, there is a slim chance he might do a live cover of that someday.

    'Cold Water Morning' by Neil Diamond:

    One, knowing I'm one, hearing of two
    And like a child believing dreams
    Always a dream to take you home

    Day, after the day, there comes the night
    There comes the knowing when you laugh
    If you should laugh,
    The night alone will hear
    And the night don't care

    Coldwater morning
    Take off your night-time shoes
    Coldwater morning
    I've been waiting so long for you


    One, knowing I'm one, hearing of two
    Hearing of things that I once had
    That you once had
    And when the night would come
    We'd sleep like one

    Coldwater morning
    Take off your night-time shoes
    Coldwater morning
    I've been waiting so long for you
    I've been waiting so long for you...

    I like the idea of Atomic. I’m thinking something else from Kate Bush though. Maybe Man with the Child in His Eyes.

    Has he ever done a full version of subway train? I'd love a studio version of that. I loved when he was doing that as an intro to Munich Air Disaster.
