    There's a lot of wonderful songs in this thread! Maybe there's some space in this cover album for Morrissey by Leo García. This song made me know about him.

    You think Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin or I'm A White Boy by Merle Haggard have anything to do with white supremacy?

    With Jesse Tobias in Years of Refusal mode, and then adios, J.T.:

    I Wanna Destroy You (The Soft Boys)
    Boys Get Straight (Johnny Marr)

    Studio versions of songs previously covered live:

    My Insatiable One (Suede)
    Trash (The New York Dolls)

    Then invite some new musicians in. Feel out possible future collaborators.

    Dark Globe (Syd Barrett)
    Sexuality (Billy Bragg)
    Death of Samantha (Yoko Ono) Invite Nick Saloman to do the arrangement. Lay on the wah-wah psychedelia. Twelve minutes long.

    Last song on the record:

    Morrissey (Anal Cunt)

    Of course not. But I do believe you chose them for a reason.

    I've been listening to the Cherry Red C86 series of indie compilation CD's from the Eighties and think it would be a nice gesture for him to cover some of those as many of the tracks are quite obviously love letters to The Smiths.

    By the way, look at these lyrics. It makes me wonder about Chris Isaak. He's singing directly to the guy here, and this is on his album San Francisco Days. Either way, I think it's a cool song for Morrissey to cover, and it's in the same vein as "(Marie's the Name) His Latest Flame."

    "Except the New Girl"
    Chris Isaak

    Drive your mustang down, to where you hang out
    Alone without a friend
    Girls walk by you, some in fact have tried you
    But once they tried they never tried again

    Except the new girl
    Except the new girl
    Alone and lonesome, trusting no one they say
    You've never had a friend
    People talk about you, they say they doubt you really
    Ever let anybody in
    Except the new girl
    Except the new girl
    I guess there's never been anyone
    Except the new girl
    Except the new girl
    Last time I saw him, he was laughing
    She was standing by his side
    I've got a feeling, that they're still together
    From the look that was in his eyes
    There's no one
    Except the new girl
    Except the new girl
    See him smile, he don't care
    Says he loves her, and he'll always love her
    See him smile, it seems fair

    That he finally found her, finally hold her
    There's no one
    Except the new girl

    - - -

    I love these homoerotic undertones.
