Day 2392 - You Have Killed Me

I spent most of yesterday compiling 'The Morrissey Live Chart of 2017'. Although Morrissey didn't accept a blue rose this year; the first year he hasn't accepted one since he first started accepting them in 2012, there were still plenty of on-stage nods to the BRS, including:

THERE IS A LIGHT THAT NEVER GOES OUT (LIVE IN MONTERREY 29.3.17)  - A NOD TO DAWN MIST (FTM DAY 2123)

FIRST OF THE GANG TO DIE (LIVE IN MONTERREY 29.3.17)  - A RED ROSE ACCEPTED (FTM DAY 2123)

SUEDEHEAD (LIVE IN GUADALAJARA 1.4.17)  - MORRISSEY COMING ON STAGE AT TEN PAST MIDNIGHT (FTM DAY 2127)

WHEN LAST I SPOKE TO CAROL (LIVE IN TUSCON 10.4.17) - ADDED TO THE SET AFTER I REQUESTED A YOR SONG (FTM DAY 2130)

LAST NIGHT I DREAMT THAT SOMEBODY LOVED ME (LIVE IN DALLAS 15.4.17)  - IN RESPONSE TO HEATHER TWEETING ABOUT THE SONG (FTM DAY 2140 )

GLAMOROUS GLUE (LIVE IN SAN FRANCISCO 4.11.17) - ADDED TO THE SET AFTER THE SUBJECT OF GLUE WAS DISCUSSED IN THE WRONG ARMS (FTM DAY 2343)

(I NEVER PROMISED YOU A) ROSE GARDEN (LIVE IN PHOENIX 17.11.17) -  SUNG AS A THANK YOU TO PORTLAND JO (FTM DAY 2356)

HOLD ON TO YOUR FRIENDS (LIVE IN DENVER 20.11.17) - A NOD TO FTM (FTM DAY 2359)

IN THE FUTURE WHEN ALL'S WELL (LIVE IN ST LOUIS 22.11.17) - A NOD TO FTM (FTM DAY 2361)

2017 also saw the live debuts of the following songs:

I WISH YOU LONELY

SPENT THE DAY IN BED

JACKY'S ONLY HAPPY WHEN SHE'S UP ON THE STAGE

BACK ON THE CHAIN GANG

WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR LEGS

HOME IS A QUESTION MARK

ALL THE YOUNG PEOPLE MUST FALL IN LOVE

WHO WILL PROTECT US FROM THE POLICE? 

I STARTED SOMETHING I COULDN'T FINISH 

MY LOVE, I'D DO ANYTHING FOR YOU

What is more, 2017 saw Morrissey twirling a black bra during YOU HAVE KILLED ME (LIVE IN PUEBLA 4.4.17)

But, the Morrissey Live Chart of 2017 will NOT be seeing the light of day, because at 3.41am this morning, Morrissey killed-off both the BRS and me. He sent me a Twitter DM which read, "The BRS are dead to me. As are you. Goodbye."

I have no idea what brought this on, but it would appear that we have reached the end of our journey.

It's goodnight from him, and it's goodnight from me. Goodnight.

  1. 2017 brought much for us to celebrate, but I'm very saddened to see it end this way. I hope we haven't done something to offend. If we did, it was certainly unintentional and I hope there is some way we can redeem ourselves. Sorry to miss out on your chart, Rats.

  2. I am sad that there is hurt & upset. I hope, with time we can maybe build bridges to bring about some peace or resolve.
    EARS.

  4. Saddened to hear this, especially after Jon the con text that the BRS was about to get a Christmas present from Moz. I hope it is just some misunderstanding otherwise I do not consider being exiled much of a gift. Anyways, Happy Holidays to all.

  6. The BRS may be dead to Morrissey but I am an individual and would be saddened and offended to think that I am dead to Morrissey as a human being. Morrissey, you will never be dead to me.
