English rock trio, Muse have paid homage to fellow Brits, The Smiths, by covering the legendary groups “Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want” on their new single. The original version of the track was a staple on the Manchester groupís 1985 venture Hatful Of Hollow and will now appear on Museís forthcoming double A-side single “Feeling Good / Hyper Music”. The single, which drops on November 12, is just full of covers as the song “Feeling Good” is a cover of the old Nina Simone classic.
In semi-related news, former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr canít keep his mouth shut about the recent recording sessions he had with Oasis singer, and 1/2 of the famous ongoing Gallagher brother feud, Liam. As we previously reported, the two got together to record some songs that Liam had written and Marr thinks that heís got an entire album worth of great songs. Speaking out again about these sessions in Londonís Metro newspaper, he said, “I played with Liam on some songs he’d written last winter. He’s got a load of really good tunes. He comes up with the weirdest chords, and just writes from the heart really. “It’s not easy being him. I respect him because in his mind he thinks Elvis sold out, Mick Jagger sold out and John Lydon sold out and he’s going to be the first person in his position to not do that.”
