There probably aren’t too many Miley Cyrus crowds that would recognize, never mind appreciate, this cover of The Smiths’ classic “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out”, not even the ones with Irish blood like at this concert in Belfast from last night. But there’s going to be a couple of fans there who’ll wonder what the song is, go home and look it up, and realize they’ve been doing music wrong their entire short lives. And for that, I salute her. Singing a song about undying love while staring at yourself in your phone and taking a selfie on stage seems like it would’ve been something our man would’ve done had the technology existed at the time, doesn’t it?
Speaking of Morrissey, he’s just released a new song today called “Instanbul” which we are still processing.
