It's doing my bloody head in! Can't remember what song they are from. Pretty sure it's a 1960's track???
Maybe, but when I hum along with the trumpets, I almost get the track. May have to cut my ears off tonight to get that bloody worm! Can't believe nobody else hears it!Danny Levin is quite a prolific musician and is credited as playing on it - so probably not a sample at all.
Consider yourself berated. Now go and mow the lawn or something.This is still bugging the fuck out of me.
Ok, even I'm not sure about this. So I could be reading too much into it. Feel free to berate me!
The Kinks - You Really Got Me, has that five note riff. The lyrics are also about someone in bed that can't sleep. Morrissey doesn't say that in his lyrics, but he does hug a pillow because he's missing someone.
Could be bollocks.
But those 5 notes!
Nice sleuthing!It's intentional!
Just Googled Morrissey Pretty Flamingo and found this:
