Day 1638 - Living on video

Astra has made an unexpected return to the corridors of FTM, leaving comments over the weekend on  Day 1633. Apart from that visit from Astra, all has been quiet in the world of Moz, with no pessoas in The Wrong Arms, and no sightings of Moz in Irish pubs. There has been no further word as to whether or not Morrissey will accept the offer from the Animal Welfare Party to run for the office of Mayor of London, but Ladbrokes currently have Moz at 500/1 to win, whereas rather bizarrely they have the despicable, self-promoting cunt, George Galloway at just 50/1..... Actually, as Galloway thinks he's a cat, perhaps he will stand down and back Morrissey.

THE DESPICABLE GEORGE GALLOWAY & PETE 'THE POUT' BURNS

Rather intriguingly, a comment was left on my last blog entry by an Alexandra Jennings Cronin, who claims to be the youngest grandchild of the novelist, A J Cronin. Alexandra gives an excellent theory of her grandfather's novel, Hatter's Castle being another possible influence for the song Staircase At the University. Alexandra also claims to not be a fan of Morrissey, but seems to know an awful lot about his pessoas, and also made reference to Astra's Longer Than my Never story posted on FTM last November. Alexandra signed off with: *ΚΑΤΑ*ΤΟΝ*ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ*ΕΑΥΤΟΥ*, which is obviously some sort of code, but I'm jiggered if I know what it means.

As my regular regular readers know,  I do love a chart - especially Morrissey related; although I can't say that I have any interest in charts depicting kittens or cardigans. I like music charts, so over the weekend, I decided to trawl through Youtube, to see how many 'views' each of the videos for Morrissey's singles had received, and then put my findings into a chart. Where it warrants, fan-made videos are included:

PAMELA ANDERSON IN THE SPOKEN PROMO VIDEO

There are no official or fan-made videos on Youtube for any of the following singles. If someone were to bother making videos for them, they would no doubt get a large number of views:

PICCADILLY PALARE 

THE MORE YOU IGNORE ME, THE CLOSER I GET

HOLD ONTO YOUR FRIENDS

ROY'S KEEN

SATAN REJECTED MY SOUL

REDONDO BEACH

SOMETHING IS SQUEEZING MY SKULL

SATELLITE OF LOVE (LIVE)

Special mention should be made of a fan made video for the song, MY DEAREST LOVE (b side to All You Need Is Me) 177,597 - Loaded by sdsuedehead's channel on Dec 2 2011 (set to a scene from the film Love Story) and an official video for GANGLORD (featured on the maxi single of  The Youngest Was the Most Loved) 40,459 - Loaded by MozLuv59 on Mar 8 2010.

There are also fan made videos for all of the songs featured on the LP, World Peace is None of Your Business. Here is the chart showing the most popular fan made video for each song, which rather surprisingly has a song from the bonus cd as Number 1.

  1. Great charts! Fluffy has been astonishingly full of life for the past couple of days - sorry I mostly missed him in the Arms, but I've been enjoying catching up on the charts. Quite perplexing that November didn't rank higher, but Suedehead at #1 is certainly no surprise - it's one of my favorite videos, along with November and Ganglord.

  2. Good morning. The "code" left by Mlle AJC is part of Jim Morrison's epitaph (that's the guy who's apparently very popular with some Supreme tee sellers):

    "Morrison's gravestone has a Greek inscription reading Κατὰ τον δαίμονα ἑαυτοῦ, in capital letters (ΚΑΤΑ ΤΟΝ ΔΑΙΜΟΝΑ ΕΑΥΤΟΥ). The meaning intended by the Morrison family when the inscription was selected is "True to his own spirit." Morrison's father either selected the phrase or drafted it himself. The literal meaning is "according to his own daimōn", an Ancient Greek word that implies a minor deity, attendant spirit, luck, fortune, "guiding star" and the like, with no negative or pejorative connotations."

    Alternatively, it could also refer to an album title of some dark metal Messieurs called Rotting Christ, but I'm veering towards the first explanation.
