Meanwhile.. who's this Billie Joel guy singing background vocals? 😬

 

Is Billie Joe the "Bill"in the song?  That's all I could think the whole time I listened to it.

The humor in the last page of this thread is why this place is great :happy:

I must admit I was dead laughing especially when Billie sings "come on, Bill!" with that tone :lol: Also, I find that we can hear his vocals pretty well, for background vocals. As if they really wanted us to recognize his voice right away!

@That Dude yeah, I haven't listened to the other songs in Morrissey's album, but assuming it's the only song where they're a Bill, why does Billie intervene precisely on that one? and echoing his own name to the wedding proposal of Morrissey's character's, as talking himself into accepting it, into the imaginary context of the song. And making us wonder, at some point, if it's only in that context... :eyebrows: (PS: i'm kidding, but what I really wonder is if Billie did this homonymy thing on purpose to tease us, knowing Morrissey's reputation :P)

It's a metaphor for Billie being pulled towards fascism :cry:

Is that the result of your expert psychoanalytical analysis ? :cry:

I'd say, since it's Morrissey who makes the request of wedding, meaning the impulse comes from him, maybe Billie pushes himself to accept in the song, as to avoid having to do it in real life. And Morrissey stops harassing him that way :P

After reading about who this Morrissey guy is, I now have something to say that might not actually piss people off:

What the fuck is BJA thinking?!

That would be the the end of GDC! :lol:

That is the exact face Morrissey is making on his wikipedia page!  

Check it out!

What if Billie took over vocals on future Morrissey albums and vise versa?

I was a bit disappointed that Billie didn't have a verse all his own, but not a bad track. 

Maybe this guy'll make an appearnace on the new GREEN DAY 13 record.  You guy would love that.  haha.

 

I hope that happens :bunny:

I think they actually sound really good together and Billie’s backing is really good, it’s there but it is backing.

They compliment each other, which surprised me as I didn’t think they would

On uk iTunes, I see that Billie collaboration is way outselling any other track on the Morrisey album.

Oh doh, didn’t realise it was actually the lead single as not seen or heard anything about it, other than that Billie Joe was doing backing.

As I was reminded of this... I hope Billie's going to stay out of politics on the next album. I can accept he's okay with Morrissey, but I'm not interested in any preaching from him.

Amen! 

It's not that I don't respect Billie Joe's thoughts on this but I really don't believe this is the time. If they were to go into some Anti-Trump direction all that is for him is free advertising. Might as well just donate to his next campaign. 

Also, Billie Joe's thoughts are centered on American politics. Nothing is wrong with that as that is his country and that has been his experience. However, if he was to fully write an entire political album speaking out against the current state of America it just may not jive with others in different political climates. 

For example, here in Canada  we have quite the opposite problem as the states. The states have a lot of threat coming from the right meanwhile Canada has more of a threat coming from the left. The result is the same regardless. Working class people are still thrown under the bus.

Why couldn’t he have just collaborated with Johnny Marr instead? :wub:
