A great song by The Jam and as always the quality of the singer and rich, layered tones of Morrissey's vocals only celebrate the song in a soothing,relaxing and classy cover.
Stop comparing. Just enjoy them both.
Love Morrissey to death, but this can`t touch the origional.
I love it when Moz covers British songs.....
I`m gonna just say it - this is better than the original, sorry Mr Weller, you wrote a brilliant song, but Morrissey nailed it.....
I cant' say it's better than The Jam original but I do like the slower version and of course Morrissey's great voice.
heard this for first time this week ,, think it was Jo Whiley ... great cover ....:)
This masterpiece should be played next to Father John Misty's "Bored in America."
The Jam's song was /is great. I have this version too. Great version of the original.
Great cover,better than BBC's ones
Morrissey- the only person who can cover a song and do it better than the original! Very well done sir...
Alway's does 😊
I have to admit that I prefer this over the original.
+tree.house Fuck off you lunatic !
Brilliant cover, Morrissey puts his own spin on it. The lines "Splattered walls and a kick in balls is all that you get in the name of entertainment" are sung with such vigour and feeling, it changes the whole emphasis of the song compared the The Jam original.
+Daren Goldring It is very "sexy" to say the original is the best, but for me,morrissey is the winner in this case
Not as good, The Jam's original version is one of the best!!
had it recorded on a cassette off radio long time ago, and I remember a school friend I told about this version insisted it wasn't Morrissey... later I discovered the amazing Jam original and was somewhat confused about who's done what about it originally... nice reminder of a cover this, just beautiful.
the loop is bloody good too, true
This is Morrissey covering The Jam - so actually a Paul Weller song. Morrisey does a great cover no doubt about that but I still prefer the original. My favorite Morrisey song would be The Loop and this cover comes in a close third after Sister I'm a Poet.
Er, considering I was into The Jam-pre Smiths, read a book, I kinda know that.
Ok he DID NOT create the song but in revisiting it it becomes his (version of the) song !
It's not his song. Paul Weller wrote it..
no kidding?Well I like this song sung by morrissey
It's a Jam song.
one of his best songs - what a voice !
