    Morrissey A-Z: "I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday"

    Our song for today is this Morrissey/Nevin composition, the penultimate track on the Your Arsenal album from 1992. (The song was covered by Bowie the following year, of course - "It's me singing Morrissey singing me" - and was the penultimate track on his Black Tie White Noise.) What do we...

    Next up in the A-Z is this Morrissey/Tobias song, originally released as a B-Side on the "You Have Killed Me" single and also included on the Swords compilation. What do we think of this one?

    Today's song is this one, a Morrissey/Whyte composition from the You Are The Quarry album. Released as a single in the UK, it reached Number 10 on the Christmas chart of 2004 (back in the pre-streaming days when the Christmas chart wasn't almost entirely filled by "classic" festive tracks)...

    Morrissey A-Z: "I Don't Mind If You Forget Me"

    Our song for today is this one, a Morrissey / Street composition from the second side of Viva Hate. What do we think? (I was hoping we'd get to do "I Have Forgiven Jesus" today, Easter Sunday, but alas we'll have to wait until tomorrow for that one.)

    Morrissey A-Z: "I Didn't Know What to Do"

    Our song for today is this Gilbert O'Sullivan live cover, included on the deluxe edition of Low in High School. (The original was released in 1971, as the B-side to O'Sullivan's single "We Will".) Thoughts on this one?

    Morrissey A-Z: "I Couldn't Understand Why People Laughed"

    Today's song is this one: "unreleased" for a while but then posted on YouTube by SER in August 2020 as a "thank you" for the flowers sent by fans after the death of Morrissey's mother. What do we think of this one?

    Morrissey A-Z: "I Can Have Both"

    Today's song in the A-Z is this Morrissey/Boorer composition, released as a B-side on the "Alma Matters" single. And if you're into academic discussions of Morrissey, "I Can Have Both" is also the title of an article by three scholars at the University of Limerick in 2014, about Morrissey's...

    Morrissey A-Z: "Human Being"

    We kick off the weekend with the last of the "H" songs - in this case, a cover of the New York Dolls song, released as a B-side on the "You Have Killed Me" single. What do we think? (Also, feel free to post a better YouTube clip, I wasn't sure which one to choose.)

    Morrissey A-Z: "How Can Anybody Possibly Know How I Feel?"

    Our song for today is this Morrissey/Whyte track from the You Are The Quarry album. This track was described in the NME's review of the album as "manic, metallic misanthropy. Morrissey gone postal." What do we think?

    Morrissey A-Z: "Home Is a Question Mark"

    Today's song is this one, from the Low in High School album. Does anyone want to wrap their legs around the face of this one?

    Morrissey A-Z: "Hold On To Your Friends"

    Our song for today is this one: the second single from Vauxhall and I - and the first Morrissey single which failed to make the Top 40 in the UK. (Not a reflection, in my view, on the quality of the song - but a very strange choice for a single!) Anyhow: what do we think of this one?
