    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.

    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.

    This masterpiece should be played next to Father John Misty's "Bored in America."

    Morrissey- the only person who can cover a song and do it better than the original! Very well done sir...

    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.

    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..
