    The original 1969 version

    Today it's Mozza holding court on the pernicious duality of love and it's oft times fine distinction from hate...(stick with it, the sound evens out after a few seconds into a great version):



    Sweetness, sweetness I was only joking
    When I said I'd like to smash every tooth
    In your head

    Oh ... sweetness, sweetness, I was only joking
    When I said by rights you should be
    Bludgeoned in your bed

    ^ Yes that is a great version but for Vicar in a Tutu I'll take the most excellent Rank album version. (Brilliantly hilarious yet sad but true lyrics) Morrissey is a living sign people !



    I was minding my business
    I was lifting some lead off
    The roof of the Holy Name church
    It was worthwhile living a laughable life
    Just to set my eyes on the blistering sight
    Of a vicar in a tutu
    He's not strange
    He just wants to live his life this way

    A scanty bit of a thing
    With a decorative ring
    That wouldn't cover the head of a child
    As Rose collects the money in a canister
    Who comes sliding down the banister ?
    The vicar in a tutu
    He's not strange
    He just wants to live his life this way

    The monkish monsignor
    With a head full of plaster
    Said : "My man, get your vile soul dry-cleaned"
    As Rose counts the money in the cannister
    As natural as Rain
    He dances again
    My god !
    The vicar in a tutu
    Oh yeah
    Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Oh ...
    The vicar in a tutu
    Oh yeah
    Oh ...

    The next day in the pulpit
    With Freedom and Ease
    Combatting ignorance, dust, and disease
    As Rose counts the money in the cannister
    As natural as Rain
    He dances again and again and again

    In the fabric of a tutu
    Any man could get used to
    And I am the living sign
    And I'm a living sign
    I am a living sign
    I'm a living sign
    I am a living sign
    I'm a living sign
    Sign ...
    I am a living sign

    I agree TDC; VIATT was only incidental to BSA in the clip...I adore the fluidity of Mozza's voice as he protracts the "living sign" refrain over a seemingly inexpendable single, sustained breath...absolutely brilliant.

    I bought Marr's remastered box about 6 weeks ago and, with conservative estimation, I must have logged at least 10 complete listens to Bombs and Rank each...I can't remember ever being seduced this immediately by any music short of the Dead (and that's among a lofty list of favored bands like Floyd, CSN(Y), the Doors, Zepp, REM, Dylan, the Beatles, Jimi...).

    Traveling just a few limbs down the family tree, I'm percolating into a punk craze after receiving - and listening twice already to - the pistol's Spunk yesterday. After receiving an Amazon gift card, early this evening I filled my cart with
    DK.jpgDM.jpg and MS.jpg

    Lucidity got the better of me and I bailed for sober reflection in the morning. If nothing else, I'll simply have to add this one to the ipod library soon:

    Okay, kidz...though better known for popular anthems like Anarchy, Submission, and God Save, THIS might well be the paramount performance of punk's epic banner song, No Fun - a magnificent capsulization of slacker ennui and hooligan violence.

    Listen carefully: Rotten starts out roaring with full voice and rolling Rs...but, after sacrificing mind, body, and soul at the altar, he is left hoarse, staggering, and breathless at the conclusion almost 7 minutes later...absolutely brilliant. I received this release on Monday afternoon and just completed my 5th full listen today. Unbelievable. Paradigmatic. I could easily exhaust my reservoir of superlatives on this one!/K

    Okay Flamme, enough of the philanthropic anthems - d'ya think we just observed a major religious holiday or something? But, if you demand an inspirational hymn, then here goes....

    My youngest son is nearly 16 and going through that phase known as 'girls '
    So for him now and for all teenagers everywhere one of the greatest pop/ punk songs ever

    Great song - if you like it, you should check out this band's self-titled debut album The La's.
