Can 'This Charming Man' win a song contest?
Morrissey, the beloved former lead singer for The Smiths, is being recruited to represent Britain in the annual Eurovision song contest, websites are reporting. Hopes are that the 47-year-old Morrissey will break Britain's 10-year losing streak in the song contest, in which European countries submit a song to be performed live on TV. What a cool idea. Proof once again that American Idol is limp and lame.
You know, we haven't done a podcast yet on The Smiths and Morrissey, and we get a lot of grief from his fans for the omission. But we have good reason. Five of them actually.
Top 5 reasons we haven't recorded a podcast on The Smiths:
5. Because meat is murder.
4. Already pitched idea of "Mung Beans with Morrissey" cooking show to Food Network.
3. Our co-host Cathy is allergic to gladiolas.
2. Pop music critic Sean Daly confuses them with The Smyths, who are still mad at him for what he said about Patty.
1. Because we're the most inept that ever stepped.
