Day 972 - Morrissey Wears the Blue Rose...... Oh, You Poor Little Fools

Hmmm, where do I start? Do I start with the fact that Morrissey's new single and promo video are OUT, or do I start with something far more personal to our small little community? Easy.

At last, at last, at last..... Youtube footage has emerged of Morrissey receiving the BLUE ROSE in Santa Ana, and not only does he receive the rose, he seems to serenade it, before proudly placing it in his top pocket to display to the world. How much MORE blatant could Morrissey make it? MORRISSEY SUPPORTS THE BLUE ROSE SOCIETY..... but the world can't see.



Even more important than the footage of Morrissey receiving the rose during Yes, I Am Blind, is the footage of him WEARING his BLUE ROSE during Trouble Loves Me; the anthem song of the BRS. This truly IS a special moment for the Blue Rose Society. To the masses it means nothing, to US it means EVERYTHING. Thanks to mozboy76 for posting on Youtube:




Trouble Loves Me has also been posted on Youtube by our very own, Vulgar Angie. How apt that our Vice President captured the moment:


Angie also recorded and posted I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday, another BRS song, made extra special by having Moz sing it wearing his BLUE ROSE:



Right then, now I can move onto World Peace Is None Of Your Business. I lay in bed last night watching concert videos, and then at midnight, I just couldn't get World Peace Is None Of Your Business out of my head...... so I downloaded it....... and have continued to play it on repeat ever since.

 This morning, I discovered that a promo video had also been added to i tunes. The video stars Moz sitting at a piano wearing a tux, reciting (not singing) the words to WPINOYB. Nancy Sinatra enters the room and gives Morrissey a brief case containing white flowers (lilies?) and the written words of WPINOYB. It has been noted by a number of the BRS members, that the video is very surreal and 'Lynch Like'. Perhaps it is Morrissey's version of the Black Lodge from Twin Peaks. A surreal dream, with a sinister looking Nancy giving the maestro a message that he has to pass on to the people of the world. The maestro looks surprised as he opens the brief case. WHAT can the lilies mean? I can't help but wonder what would have happened today if that video had appeared with Moz wearing a BLUE ROSE...... actually, probably NOTHING!

MORRISSEY - FROM THE PROMO VIDEO OF WPINOYB

The song itself is just gripping. It is a really strong political message, with Morrissey singing from the point of view of an unknown world leader, mocking the masses for continuing to do what they are told to do, without ever questioning why. As we in the BRS know, both Bollock Obama and Tony Bliar have been named by Our Mozzer as the possible world leader in question, but it could be any of them. As Morrissey wrote in his TTY statement last November , "I believe that the most powerful vote you can give is No vote; for the days of Prime Ministers have gone, and it's time for a form of change that is far more meaningful than simply switching blue to red." And of course Moz is right, whilst people continue to vote, the system CANNOT change, it is only when NOBODY votes, that a change HAS to come about.

Broken has also informed us that WPINOYB is Morrissey's anti NWO song. There are of course parallels with the whole MorrisseysWorld phenomenon. Nobody believed that MW was Morrissey because there was no Government minister available to tell them to believe! Even Morrissey wasn't there to tell them to believe..... so they didn't believe!

And on the subject of the MorrisseysWorld blog, the last entry now has 51 comments, so just 949 to go until we get another article! 51 is also the chart position that WPINOYB is currently at in the UK ITunes chart (time now 1 pm). It was at No.93 at 10 am this morning, so it's on the climb. Maybe I was wrong yesterday, when I said it wouldn't make the chart. Janice Long gave it it's first play last night on Radio 2, but will any other radio station play it? Surely the lyrics would care them. I expect Janice has already been told not to play it again.

The excitement surrounding the release of WPINOYB was electric in The Twitterdilly Arms yesterday, and even Mademoiselle Fifi took the time to pop into The Arms very briefly, to give us a link to iTunes in New Zealand, (where the single was released first) and instructed us to "listen".... so we did!

Mademoiselle Fifi also responded to my question as to whether or not I should buy her a ticket to accompany me to watch Johnny Marr in Portsmouth in August. She said, "No purchase necessary for me, either I get in for free or will be denied entry. It's a gamble." She also added, "Have you suddenly been upgraded to my + 1?" before then adding, "I'll think about it. And I will obviously dress up." I informed M.Fifi that I too would dress up, in pink, and that if we are denied access we could always go and have a drink in the Lady Hamilton. M.Fifi replied, "The style might work for the gig but it won't go down too well at Lady Hamilton's."

"I'll think about it"! I am already starting to picture me and Moz watching Johnny Marr from the back of the Wedgewood Rooms. It could happen. No, it couldn't happen! It could! No, it couldn't!...... sorry, I just went in to one of my self help therapy moments. Perhaps this is my surreal Black Lodge moment. Mind you, I think the Black Lodge is bigger than the Wedgewood Rooms.

Before leaving The Arms, Mademoiselle Fifi spoke to Willow regarding the new single, saying, "I knew you'd enjoy a bit of tambourine" and also told Heather and GWO, "Enjoy the new single tomorrow, the other songs will be released soon enough", which suggests that the rumour is true about Istanbul and Earth Is The Loneliest Planet being released within the next few weeks.

Erica Calil has pulled off another great find, discovering an article regarding the photo of the wall with WORLD PEACE IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS written on it. Unfortunately the article is written in Spanish.... or is it Portuguese? It's foreign!

There is so much more that I could write about today, but I just have no time. I have another cricket match to watch, and I am also working.

The Vice President of the Blue Rose Society, Vulgar Angie, has tweeted to say that Blue_Rose_Society is now on Instagram. I have NO idea what Instagram is, or how it works, but we are on it!

And finally for today, GWO has asked me to point out that in the recently released Peter Blake Royal Albert Hall mural , of the 400+ stars who appear in the montage, it is Morrissey that Blake chose to put right in the very centre of the FRONT ROW..... which is exactly where he belongs.





Tonight, Morrissey returns to the stage in El Paso Texas, at the beautiful looking Plaza Theatre. Will Trouble remain? Will there be any BLUE ROSES in Texas? Time, as ever.......

  1. I haven't yet had a chance to watch the video of the song, but it is interesting
    that Nancy Sinatra is featured in it.
    She tweeted recently that she had seen Moz, now we know why !

    How do superstars contact each other ? Do they go through each other's people ?
    Or does Nancy have the same phone numbers as before !!

    Erica and GWO are great at investigative work.

  2. Oh Ratty, Ratty, my massive apologize because I missed your fantastic chart! This is a very special time for all of us and for Morrissey, he's doing fine, fine, fine! Nancy, in the video is supreme! The video is a great idea! Trying to be forgiven for my absence in the chart I read Erica's article, it is in portuguesh, and I think it explain that a producer who worked with Artic Monkeys was there when the pic was taken, it was in France near Avignone and near the Studios La Fabrique, probably Morrissey was attracted by the wall of that empty country house and by the very old bike and the producer is proud to say he was there when the pic was taken.Better waiting for mor information by Erica. Waiting for the concert, ciao! BRS, for ever!

  3. The new single is on repeat and the promo video is simply genius!

    I don't think the fabulous Fifi would be seen in public with Ratty wearing a Wham-inspired outfit. You must step up your game!

  4. Wow, what a chart! As if those concert videos aren't mind-blowing enough, we also have the single release and promo video to delight in. I simply can't get over how fantastic the promo vid is. It's so brilliantly original, so unique, much like the great man himself. I try to avoid Solow as much as possible but I did happen to see the comments there about the new video and oh, the irony: some have mentioned the Lynchian style of the video. Do they even realize that Twin Peaks is a major part of MorrisseysWorld? Yes, they are blind.

  7. considering Morrissey was all at pains to make sure everyone knew that he was having a meal with Robbie Keane and his wife in Dublin and would not be within a mile of Mr Marrs' concert I hardly think he would show up to another gig, but who am I to say what his holiness would do, I wouldn't like to bet on him showing up though

    2. This will probably be deleted, but a person by the name of Fifi posted twice over at All You Need is Morrissey, and is simply a fan. Last year a person named Astraea posted at SoLow. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

      Delete
    3. I am miffed now. *storms off*

      Delete
    4. Astraea isn't a person, she is a lovely, mystical, Star Maiden who is attempting to bring back The Golden Age to her devotees.

      Delete
    5. Well of course Fifi and Astraea aren't Morrissey. Neither was Broken, who also used to post on the other site. Only @itsmorrissey is Morrissey. Don't you people know anything?

  9. The promo video is a wonderful combination of beauty & the surreal.
    A work of art.

  10. I love the video which is both stylish and intriguing.
    It certainly has David Lynch overtones.
    Moz looks very handsome and Nancy very youthful.
    It is a clever concept and I love M's smile at the end.

  14. So exciting to be able to view such a splendid countdown. The tour has really started out with a bang! I have posted , in the past, that I am more drawn to a song because of the lyrics. Which is why I feel, that unlike many songs from the past, much of' the newer music is just drivel. Made for the empty headed masses. Lyrics are one on the main reasons I began to follow Moz. I found the lyrics of WPINOYB. To be very powerful, but then, I had the optimal setting when I read them for the first time. I had NPR playing in the back ground and they had just begun their newscast, so the stories for the day were 200 girls kidnapped--weeks before with little response of public outcry. Then came the ferry boat sinking and 200 more lost children. A sinking they were blaming on the owners overloading of the boat with cargo, showing how the richer, upper classes thought of us. Needless to say, WPINOYB words :-) had a profound effect on me. Last eve I watched the video with Nancy Sinatra. Enjoyed, but at first it seemed odd not to have Moz singing. As the Nancy Sinatra video, you had in your blog last week, used film from a Cocteau movie, do you think it was she who got Moz interested in him? Finally, the DD only have to leave 83 comments each, to get the next piece. I think we can do it if we try! Maybe leave 3 word comments? #BRS

  15. I very much enjoyed the promo vid. It was really well done. Willow, Our Moz sounded quite melliflous in his recital of WPINOYB :-) I hope the El Paso show is fantastic for all. Here is a lovely quote from Yeats which I think we all embrace "There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven't yet met."

  16. By Laurie Anderson: White Lily lyrics

    What Fassbinder film is it?
    The one-armed man walks into a flower shop
    And says: What flower expresses
    Days go by
    And they just keep going by endlessly
    Pulling you Into the future
    Days go by
    Endlessly
    Endlessly pulling you
    Into the future?
    And the florist says: White Lily.

    1. The "film" is, I think, the miniseries Berlin Alexanderplatz by Rainer Werner Fassbinder and the one-armed man is Franz: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berlin_Alexanderplatz_%28miniseries%29

      That we be a very Morrissey reference for the video's white lillies.

  17. It's over losers. The real Morrissey has joined Twitter. Hmmm lets see who he ends up following... None of the sad, pathetic losers here. See ya!
