Mozzer Quirks

For all things concerning Moz's solo career.

By quirks I suppose I mean unusual little things in songs, I can't explain it at this hour on a Friday so let me lead by example:

I love the way he repeats "your face" in "Every Day Is Like Sunday":

Trudging back over pebbles and sand
And a strange dust lands on your hands
(And on your face...)
(On your face ...)
(On your face ...)
(On your face ...)


It takes on a menacing air with sexual overtones, for some reason it makes me think he is trying to make the person he is addressing feel uncomfortable. The way it's sung, I detect a certain resentment there, it's like he takes a certain pleasure is describing it all over their face. I could be wrong, but anyway I think it's a great touch.

Anyone got anything of the sort to add? No matter how trivial it may seem.
Make no mistake my friend, your pointless life will end.

Well, I hope this counts *crosses fingers*.

I love it on 'America is Not The World' where he goes "Well America, you know where, you can shove your hamburgers." He sings it in such a deadpan tone it makes it sound so much funnier.

Cool thread CFTUNH :)

From "That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore."

I've seen this happen in other people's lives
And now it's happening in mine


To me, Morrissey sings that line like he really believes it. Right about the time he sings "and now," he puts in this extra effort.

I hope that qualifies.

"Reel Around The Fountain"

let alone the quirky lyrics, the title itself is kooky.
don't misunderstand, His quirkiness is what made me love the band in the first place.

got to be his la la la la la-la in Spring-Heeled Jim
I'm spellbound, but a woman divides
And the hills are alive with celibate cries

The way he sings 'The Lazy Sunbathers' as a whole. But when he sings, 'That's all very well, but would you please keep the noise down low..'. He sounds like he doesn't want to be disturbed on his lounge chair as well. :P
