MORRISSEY | Satellite of Love (Video)

June 25, 2011 at 3:08 am Leave a comment


Morrissey sung a cover of The Velvet Underground/Lou Reed classic “Satellite of Love” — a song about a lover’s betrayal — at this year’s Glastonbury festival. Interestingly enough, the backdrop behind the band is a still image from Mauro Bolognini’s film “Senilità” (also called “Careless”). The actor is Anthony Franciosa. It’s basically a grey and beautiful film about unrequited love and yes, betrayal — two very familiar Morrissey themes. Thanks to TwentyFourBit blog for the heads up about the cover. It’s a pretty rendition. The user Ermm has posted a number of very nice video from the show, including a bang-up version of “Meat Is Murder”, new tracks “People Are the Same Everywhere” and “Action Is My Middle Name”, along with some classics like “This Charming Man” and “There Is a Light That Never Goes Out”. Morrissey and his band sound in great form. On a side note, if you want to know why small music blogs are taking over, read the UK Guardian review of Morrissey’s show. The reviewer calls Morrissey’s last song, “William, It Was Really Nothing”, vigorous. So, what’s the problem? Well, that song wasn’t on the set list. And the last song of the night was “This Charming Man.” Oops. For shame. Indeed, it must have really sounded like Morrissey was getting “William, It Was Really Nothing” all wrong.  – David D. Robbins Jr.
