Day 2374 - "Hidden recordings"

Last Thursday Morrissey (as @TrueMorfessa) tweeted, "Hidden recordings may surface oh so soon." There was no further clue as to what this could possibly mean, but yesterday I discovered that Broadcast Music, Inc (BMI) have six new Morrissey/Boorer songs listed on their website.

The titles of the songs (and BMI reference numbers) are:
LOVER TO BE (25804753)
I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE LAUGHED (25804754)
BROW OF MY BELOVED (25804755)
DIANA DORS (25804756)
BLUE DREAMERS EYES (25804759)
THIS SONG DOESN'T END WHEN IT'S OVER (25804760)

DIANA DORS (SMITHS COVER STAR) IN THE FILM YIELD TO THE NIGHT, WHICH DEBUTED ON MY FAVOURITE TV STATION, TALKING PICTURES TV ON MONDAY NIGHT AND IS BEING SHOWN AGAIN THIS COMING SUNDAY AT 10PM

It initially struck me as rather odd that there aren't Morrissey songs listed on BMI for numbers 25804757 and 25804758, but it could just be that another BMI employee was registering other songs on a different computer at the same time. Low In High School tracks don't have consecutive reference numbers either, so I would imagine they were registered at quite separate times. They are as follows:

I BURY THE LIVING (25447242)
GIRL FROM TEL AVIV WHO WOULDN'T KNEEL (25447724)
ALL THE YOUNG PEOPLE MUST FALL IN LOVE (25447787)
SPENT THE DAY IN BED (25447798)
MY LOVE I'D DO ANYTHING FOR YOU (25447928)
WHO WILL PROTECT US FROM THE POLICE (25448177)
WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR LEGS (25448251)
ISRAEL (25448568)
IN YOUR LAP (25448629)
JACKY'S ONLY HAPPY WHEN SHE'S UP ON STAGE (25449432)
I WISH YOU LONELY (25449488)

Rather interestingly, HOME IS A QUESTION MARK (7761019) is registered under it's original 2003 listing, with Alain Whyte as Morrissey's joint composer. There isn't a second listing for the new Morrissey/Lopez song.



Morrissey has a total of 305 listings on BMI, including two listings for HAIRDRESSER ON FIRE (516906), which is also listed as HAIR DRESSER ON FIRE (17360738).

STOP ME IF YOU THINK YOU'VE HEARD THIS ONE BEFORE (1414118); which is registered to Johnny Marr and Steven Patrick Morrissey, is also rather bizarrely listed as STOP ME IF YOU'VE HEARD THIS ONE BEFORE (21086028) by John Martin Marr and Steven Patrick Morrissey. Not all of the 305 Morrissey listings are songs that have been released, and they also include songs where other artists have sampled.

Morfessa took to Twitter yesterday at 11:18pm (UK time) and teasingly tweeted me to ask, "What does it mean?"

I can only presume that these are tracks for a deluxe version of Low In High School, but it would be strange for all six tracks to be Boz Boorer written songs, with none from any of the other members of the band....although actually, now I come to think about it, eight of the nine songs on the deluxe version of You Are The Quarry were written by Alain Whyte, so is it really so strange?

In other news, Morrissey had been scheduled to appear on The Late Show yesterday, but it didn't happen - presumably due to the illness which cause the Philadelphia concert to be cancelled.

There is one date left on the US tour - in Boston tomorrow - plus a headline appearance at KROQ's 'Almost Acoustic Christmas' on December 10th and a 'Saturday Session' at CBS on the 16th.

  2. A nice discovery, Ratty. A deluxe version of LIHS is quite a tantalizing prospect.

  3. Thank you for sharing this Rats. These new song titles have really grabbed my attention. Blue Dreamers Eyes in particular.

  4. Excellent research. Strange that there is such a large difference in the reference numbers for the LIHS songs and t'others. Are we in for a 'Moz and Boz' album?

  5. Jackys Only Happy video seems to be a loveletter to "Blue Rose Soc."

    Red/blue lighting references Twin Peaks

    The dancers do v signs over their eyes referencing MW blog

    One dancer is in a blue rose shirt

    The band wear turquoise shellsuits, as made famous by David Icke, another blog legend.

    The video is done in the "pop style" as the blog always said Moz wanted to steal Bieber's thunder.

    Th blog posted an article once in which MW said he would get "the lads" to dance in turquoise and hure backing dancers to break thr charts!

    Amazing

    1. Barretts oesophagus was even mentioned in an old blog article before anything became public... can anyone find it?

      Delete
    2. I did mention on Day 2368 that I thought Jacky was a nod to Twin Peaks, but I didn't connect those other things. Was there really an MW blog article that said the lads would dance in turquoise? That would be a HUGE coincidence. Can someone please find it?
