It was certainly a great thread/idea/series. UTEOTW is something quite special. Axver's voice in real life isn't quite so ridiculous though. Some good sincere singing from the Impster before his finish.

Does anyone remember we had a thread once where we rated the hotness of actual Interference members? My mind is twigged because I see fly so high! as one of the singers on UTEOTW, and I seem to recall a lot of intereferencers thinking she was hot. Anyone know what I'm talking about or do I sound like a massive creep?

I wasn't even aware of The Interferers. Pretty cool. And I'm a big fan of Axver's singing voice (specifically his impersonation of basslines).

But the Morrissey thread just might be the favourite thing I've ever read here. I still get back to it pretty often, which is something I don't do with other threads. The sheer idiocy of that guy is unmatched. Nothing comes close to it. Not the psychotic breakdown after the Liechtenstein thing, not the Atlanta, Germany thread, not the "I know people" one. It's just fascinating to see the guy being desperately defensive and digging himself a bigger and bigger hole, culminating in the Internet being in America. Cobbler's disbelief and the bloke's insistence that he has to respond to every single post with either an idiotic comeback or a waving smiley are priceless. Not to mention the threads that came afterwards that are also hilarious, because he simply cannot let it go:

Rating Rate the Song Threads

Kid in a Candy Store! (RTE Opens Their Vaults)

Has Bono Ever Publicly Apologized For Anything?

Man I forgot about all the goodness. Been re-reading those three. This comes close to Annie's levels of batshit insane.

The Bono Apology thread is about as low as it possibly gets around here. Holy fuck.

Fuck. I didn't remember the Morrissey thread well enough. I wasn't around as much then.
But wow that was so bad. So incredibly bad. I change my vote. Oh me, oh my.

Something I don't think I ever mentioned pertaining to that Morrissey thread is that I saw Moz play Satellite of Love a few months later, and before he began the song, he specifically stated that it was an homage to Lou Reed. I should have had my tape recorder ready.

I also love how by the end of the thread, redhill's argument has essentially become that Morrissey is aware of U2's existence.

I'll change it manually for the next thread. An offish 11-1 drubbing for redhill here.

Seeing as this is a horrible blowout, I suppose you don't really need to. I guess I ought to read both threads, and not just go based on memory, before voting from here on out.

One thing I've noticed afterwards... There are a couple of posters who are defending him in terms that it wasn't such a stretch to think that Satellite of Love was a nod to U2 in general. Which is fair enough I guess. There are probably U2 fans out there who associate it first and foremost with ZooTV.

Except the initial argument was that this was a nod to an obscure interview with Adam Clayton where he stated that U2 will play more 90s songs at Glastonbury. Which is slightly different. And about ninety times more hilarious.

Absolutely can see an artist covering SOL and meaning to do it as a nod to U2...maybe that's all they know of the tune. But that's all. No further hidden meaning. Period!

As for Morissey, it makes way more sense that he'd be paying homage to Lou Reed. Something tells me he'd probably not pay homage to any musician or band who he would consider at best, a peer, and more likely, beneath him. He's a bit of a snob that way..

If someone was going to pay homage to U2, they'd play a U2 song, not a song U2 covered on a tour in the early 90s. But let's not start this again.

One of my all-time favourite posters, redhill.

Even so, it seems to me that any U2 fan serious enough to know that they have a version of Satellite of Love will also likely know about ZooTV. And, if I'm not mistaken, at a lot of those concerts Bono "duets" with Lou Reed from the monitor. I would think that people who see that would wonder who the hell the guy on the monitor is.
