In 1985's Meat Is Murder tour programme Morrissey wrote that she was his favourite singer.
Interviewed for the 1997 Brit Girls documentary, when asked why he had covered her song 'Interlude', Morrissey said "It was a very obscure song. It was a b-side and I thought she sang it really beautifully."
Her song "Smile" was played during intermission on the 2000 Oye Esteban tour.
In April 2004, Morrissey announced Yuro's death on his official website, describing her as his "favourite singer".
Timi is mentioned briefly in [[Mention::Autobiography]]:
"The self-help manual passed around to all is The Best of Timi Yuro, a long-player in a black sleeve from which the New York-Italian singer glares with petite toughness. Timi Yuro was born Timothy, and although she is not as well known as Dorothy’s beloved Shirley Bassey, Timi Yuro’s voice rattles the bannisters with little effort. I scramble from cheap record player to cheap record player."
