World Cup Of Morrissey

Firstly a big thank you ๐Ÿ™ to all those on Twitter who have submitted entries for what should be an intriguing journey to determine WHICH Mozza song proves to be the most-loved.

I’ve made a provisional FIRST ROUND DRAW which you can read below – provisional in the sense that it allows for any last-minute additions / changes.

I think there’s no doubt that Youโ€™re The One For Me, Fatty vs Iโ€™m Throwing My Arms Around Paris is the standout tie in the first round. โœ…
