In 1985's Meat Is Murder tour programme Morrissey wrote that she was his favourite singer.

Interviewed for the 1997 Brit Girls documentary, when asked why he had covered her song 'Interlude', Morrissey said "It was a very obscure song. It was a b-side and I thought she sang it really beautifully."

Her song "Smile" was played during intermission on the 2000 Oye Esteban tour.

In April 2004, Morrissey announced Yuro's death on his official website, describing her as his "favourite singer".
