If you’re like us, you can’t to see Morrissey to headline Riot Fest on Saturday night. We’ve complied a bunch of our favorite classic Morrissey videos to get you even more in the mood.
James Dean’s hometown of Fairmount, Indiana (located just 183.8 miles from Douglas Park) provides the setting for Morrissey’s first solo video.
“The Last of the Famous International Playboys” (1989)
Green is a good color for Morrissey and the rest of the band.
“Ouija Board, Ouija Board” (1989)
Would you let these children take you out into the woods? We probably would.
“My Love Life” (1991)
Filmed in Mesa, Arizona, the visuals match the twangy-leanings of the lead guitar track. And that vintage Rolls Royce? Sick ride, Moz!
“Certain People I Know” (1992)
Do those beaches look familiar? If you’re from Chicago they should.
“Glamorous Glue” (1992)
This one is a bit of a tease — imagine walking into a blues dive catching a Morrissey on stage!
“We Hate it When Our Friends Become Successful” (1992)
They just look like they’re having a good time. Plus there’s a playfully subtle anti-dairy vibe as Morrissey waves away an ice cream cone. Make it almond or coconut-based next time!
