The original series on the old blog back in 2008-09 had 39 parts as that was the number of singles that had been released up until then. Many biographical books which go into a second or third issue in later years often have an additional chapter at the end to bring this up to date and I’m going to do the same with the Moz singles that have been released over the past 5 years. The original part 39 will however, be kept to the very end as it contains a nice tale.
It was in September 2010 that Everyday Is Like Sunday was reissued to coincide with the 20th Anniversary of the release of the Bona Drag compilation. It was the first of an increasing number of Morrissey singles that I haven’t ever bothered to buy simply as I didn’t like the sentiment of, for the sake of keeping the collection complete that I’d need to shell out for a CD single and 2 x7″ singles, all of which were full-price, with only one new track being available.
All three versions had a digital remaster of the title track (big wow!!). The CD had the previously unreleased track, November The Second, plus 2 video clips featuring the original promo plus a Top of the Pops appearance from 1989. Single #1 had a really lame live version of a New York Dolls song recorded back in 1991 while Single #2 had a live version of Everyday Is Like Sunday recorded live in 2007.
And then when you listened to the unreleased track you discover that it is merely an alternative (but not that much different) version to November Spawned A Monster.
All in all a shabby release just looking to make a quick buck with little added value. But it sold in enough quantities to reach #42.
