"Sing Your Life"|
(Morrissey/Mark E. Nevin)
The song must have been written shortly before or at the latest at the beginning of the recording session for the "Kill Uncle" album, at Hook End Manor in the autumn of 1990, with producers Clive Langer and Alan Winstanley. Musicians on this recording were Mark E Nevin (guitars), Mark 'Bedders' Bedford (basses), Andrew Paresi (drums and percussion), and perhaps Nawazish Ali Khan (violin) and Steve Heart and/or Seamus Beaghen (harmonium).
Another version was recorded on 3 June 1991 for KROQ in Los Angeles, as part of a 3-track radio session broadcast the following day. This time the musicians were Morrissey's live band: Boz Boorer (guitar), Alain Whyte (guitar), Gary Day (bass) and Spencer Cobrin (drums).
This song has only been done in concert on the 1991 Kill Uncle tour. It was a setlist regular from the start of the tour until 6 October after which date it was permanently dropped, totalling 51 airings, perhaps 54 if we take into account the fact that information is missing for some concerts of that tour.
No demos or studio outtakes of this song have leaked to the general public at this point in time.
