Morrissey cover album

The World's Forgotten Boy
In the Mozzer issue of Hot Press (a magazine I hate) Morrissey said that he would like to do an album of cover versions! Anyone have any ideas what songs he'd put on it? Apart from songs he's covered onstage, of course!

Yes, just to confuse us like he did with Under the Influence and Swan Lake by the Cats!!!


"Reggae is vile!... Oh, I didn't mean it!"

He should do an album of Smiths covers, produced by Jerry Finn. Then we would have the benefit of hearing his superbly seasoned voice giving new life to old material-- not to mention a direct comparison of lawnmower parts, which could prove enlightening.

Oh. Well, in response, I guess we'll have to continue our ongoing, relentless campaign to oppose all free-thinking, independent points of view and try and censor his passionate, individualistic voice. Embarrassed by our own inability to think clearly, shamed by our own rabid fandom in the face of pure reason, we must lash out like the subrational socialist beasts we are. After all, we cannot think for ourselves and remain locked in a prison of drooling idolatry from which our puny, enslaved minds (which of course really form one single hive-brain) cannot escape. Let the witch-hunt commence! :guitar:

Good Evening West 'am!
I hope he does "What's New" by Frank Sinatra or even, maybe, "One For My Baby"

I'd love to see him do a cover of a Material Issue song. Maybe "What If I Killed Your Boyfriend?"? Not sure the style would suit him on many of the tracks but I think he could pull off a couple in his own style.

"I don't go out that much anymore without you
I don't wanna see you hangin' 'round
I don't go to all the places
And I don't see the smiling faces
I don't wanna let you bring me down

What if I killed your boyfriend?
What if I shot him down?
What if I killed your boyfriend?
Maybe then you'd want me around

I don't have anything with anyone anymore
Since you up and went away
I don't see all the faces
And I don't go to all the places
I guess I'll be okay

What if I killed your boyfriend?
What if I shot him down?
What if I killed your boyfriend?
Maybe then you'd want me around"
 
"whats new" is a wonderful choice ! I was drip fed sinatra as a kid and see a lot of echoes between moz and frank ! they say moz is a miserable f***er but frank had many a album of pure self centered miserablism ! "one for my baby" is a bit obvious but with his new found croon , moz is the new sinatra .... discuss !!! lets start a moz to do sinatra covers album petition !!

I immediately thought Sinatra when I saw this thread. Unfortunately bloody Robbie Williams has already had a go at it so maybe it wouldn't be wise.

I think it would be more likely for him to do stuff by obscure artists

Morrissey tends to go opposit direction of our expectation regarding this kind of project.

Still it's a dream come true if he's really planning it.

Perhaps Serge Gainsbourg would be good choice. :p

[FONT=verdana,helvetica,arial]There's a devil waiting outside your door
(How much longer)
There's a devil waiting outside your door
(How much longer)
It is bucking and braying and pawing at the floor
(How much longer)
And he's howling with pain and crawling up the walls
(How much longer)
There's a devil waiting outside your door
(How much longer)
He's weak with evil and broken by the world
(How much longer)
He's shouting your name and he's asking for more
(How much longer)
There's a devil waiting outside your door
(How much longer)
[/FONT] [FONT=verdana,helvetica,arial]Loverman!
Since the world began
Forever, Amen
Till end of time
Take off that dress
I'm coming down
I'm your loverman
Cause I am what I am what I am what I am
[/FONT]
[FONT=verdana,helvetica,arial]L is for LOVE, baby
O is for ONLY you that I do
V is for loving VIRTUALLY all that you are

[FONT=verdana,helvetica,arial]Loverman!
Till the bitter end
While empires burn down
Forever and ever and ever and ever
Amen I'm your loverman
So help me, baby
So help me

I'll be your loverman!

[FONT=verdana,helvetica,arial]There's a devil crawling along your floor
(How much longer)
There's a devil crawling along your floor
(How much longer)
With a trembling heart, he's coming through your door
(How much longer)
With his straining sex in his jumping paw
(How much longer)
There's a devil crawling along your floor
(How much longer)
And he's old and he's stupid and
(How much longer)
he's hungry and he's sore
(How much longer)
And he's lame and he's blind
and he's dirty and he's poor
(How much longer)
Give him more
(How much longer)
There's a devil crawling along your floor
(How much longer)
[/FONT]
[FONT=verdana,helvetica,arial]Loverman!
Here I stand
Forever, Amen
Cause I am what I am what I am what I am
Forgive me, baby
My hands are tied
And I got no choice
No, I got no choice at all
[/FONT]
[FONT=verdana,helvetica,arial]I'll say it again
L is for LOVE, baby
O is for O yes I do
V is for VIRTUE, so I ain't gonna hurt you

R is for RENDER unto me, baby
M is for that which is MINE
A is for ANY old how, darling
N is for ANY old time
[/FONT]
[FONT=verdana,helvetica,arial]I'll be your loverman!
I got a masterplan
To take off your dress
And be your man
Seize the throne
Seize the mantle
Seize the crown
Cause I am what I am
What I am what I am I'm your loverman!
[/FONT]
[FONT=verdana,helvetica,arial]There's a devil lying by your side
You might think he's asleep
but look at his eyes
He wants you, baby, to be his bride
There's a devil lying by your side

Nuff said
