    I think this would be pretty great, but I doubt that he possesses the sense of humor anymore that would make it work.

    So with Mozza confirming he is doing an album of 12 cover songs, I think he should call it This Isn't Morrissey.

    What songs would you like to hear a cover of?

    Here they are. The twelve songs. I am disgustingly pleased with this selection.

    Elvis - The Girl of My Best Friend
    a-ha - Manhattan Skyline
    Johnny Burnette - Dreamin'
    Billy Fury - Gonna Type a Letter
    Ramones - Poison Heart
    Dolls - Subway Train
    Sinatra - That's Life (should really close the album)
    Billy Idol - It's So Cruel
    Bowie - Modern Love
    Iggy - Cry for Love
    Glen Campbell - By the Time I Get to Phoenix
    Scott Walker - On Your Own Again (with newly written extra verse making it one minute longer - the original really is painfully brief!)

    I’ve thought for awhile that Nick Drake’s Northern Sky would be a nice choice.

    I think that any song he covers should have lyrics that he can connect with and that he can emote in his own special way, which is why I think the No One Can Hold a Candle to You cover worked so well. When I heard these lyrics for the first time, my mind immediately went to Moz and how he might deliver them. I can almost hear his voice in my head.

    Morcheeba: Blindfold

    Three months in here
    Can't catch the tears
    Time never lands
    Our love is all that stands now

    Streets feel strange
    And longer lives can never change

    I'm so glad to have you
    And it's getting worse
    I'm so mad to love you
    And your evil curse...

    with the ending:

    I've a plan to save you from my misery
    I'm a man to brave to follow history

    You fail to realize that Killing an Arab has nothing to do with white supremacy. It’s a song based on Albert Camus’ existentialist novel The Stranger. But thanks for playing!

    Maybe you are lucky since the video for the song was clearly the inspiration for the Jacky video.
