Today's song is this Morrissey/Boorer/Day composition, recorded for a Janice Long BBC radio session in 2004 and included on the "Redondo Beach / There Is a Light" single of 2005.

What do we think of this one?

This is a duffer, but perhaps it might have been improved had it been given a proper studio production.

There isn't really anything of interest lyrically, musically or vocally here.

In the poll on the Hoffman board it ranked 257th from 264 solo songs.

Well, it's not up there as a classic for myself.
Whether a studio take ever happened - we'll probably never know.
It clearly inspired the Dwyer household though.

I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.
Always liked it. Moz could hardly do any wrong in the mid-2000’s. It’s obviously not as good as IPETG, but it’s still reasonably strong.

This seems a bit of a mess.
There's quite a few familiar riffs that I just can't put my finger on; the organ reminds me of something from the 70's...Dutch group Focus maybe.
As has been mentioned, better studio prod might have helped improve things. For me, the only saving grace is Moz's vocals.

I’m mistaking it with “I’m Playing Easy To Get” which was done once during a live show in 2004.
