Okay. I want to go home. Last night at the bar here in Grand Rapids I was sitting next to two girls in their early twenties who didn’t know the singer of a particular tune that was playing. The song was “New York, New York.”
Here are three Morrissey videos that pretty much make me want to cry.
The first: “I’ve Changed My Plea to Guilty,” circa December 1990. Best version ever. (A kind thank you to Mistina from the Prids for this one.)
And one of my favorite Morrissey songs, “Late Night, Maudlin Street,” performed live in 2002 in front of a bunch of lucky people in Japan:
And finally, the inaugural and possibly final installment of “three for Thursday” concludes with the classic “Sister I’m a Poet” performance at Wolverhampton in 1987 (his first solo show, backed by Gannon, Joyce and Rourke). I love the part where a fan clocks him in the head with a gladioli.
WHY I’M ANGRY TODAY
The Tigers are 16-25. Wow.
