Morrissey Cheers the Death of a Bullfighter in New Single: VIDEO

Morrissey-World-Peace-Is-None-Of-Your-Business-608x545

Following his May 19th spoken word promo for The Bullfighter Dies, Morrissey has released the full studio version.

Taken from his 10th studio album World Peace Is None Of Your Business, the track opens with a sad trumpet lament and details a world in which everyone cheers when the matador is gorged to death by the bull.

As we've come to expect from Morrissey, The Bullfighter Dies doesn't break any new ground but it's quirky enough to stand out and does what Morrissey does best - sparkling indie pop with a serious subject matter and clever lyrics.

Adam Lambert Slays Rare Track 'Love Kills' As Queen's New Frontman: VIDEO

Queen's new frontman Adam Lambert performed a rare, 30-year-old Freddie Mercury track called "Love Kills" during their live iHeartRadio show this week in anticipation of the band's upcoming 17-city U.S. summer tour.

Yahoo music gives some background:

"Love Kills" is a relatively obscure song, but Queen fanatics definitely know (and love) it. It was late, great original Queen frontman Freddie Mercury's first song recorded as a solo artist, and was featured on electronic music legend Giorgio Moroder's soundtrack for the 1984 rerelease of Fritz Lang's classic 1927 silent film, Metropolis.

While the track wasn't necessarily well-received at the time (it was actually nominated for "Worst Original Song" at the 1985 Razzie Awards), it did make it to No. 10 on the U.K. singles chart, and it went on to become a cult classic. According to Queen's publicist, Queen never performed "Love Kills" live with Freddie, who died in 1991. Freddie never performed it solo, either. 

You can compare Lambert's version to Mercury's orginal below.

Gay Crooner Sam Smith Performs 'Stay With Me' On Good Morning America - VIDEO

Stay_2

Newly out British singer Sam Smith charmed the audience members of Good Morning America on Monday morning with a live performance of his song “Stay With Me.”

The song comes from the point-of-view of someone who sucks at one night stands but still longs for companionship. The lyrics read in part:

Guess it's true, I'm not good at a one-night stand
But I still need love 'cause I'm just a man
These nights never seem to go to plan
I don't want you to leave, will you hold my hand?

… Why am I so emotional?
No it's not a good look, gain some self control
And deep down I know this never works
But you can lay with me so it doesn't hurt

The song doesn’t hint at Smith’s homosexuality the same way that his music video for “Leave Your Lover” did, but its wistful cry for deeper connection still resonates regardless of one's sexuality.

You may also recall that Smith recorded a duet version of "Stay With Me" alongside Mary J. Blige. Occupy the Disco also included another Smith collaboration (“Running”) on their Top 10 Tracks of 2012 list for Towleroad.
