VIDEO: Morrissey opens with Joe Dolan's Make Me An Island
"Shut me off, cut me off, make me an island, I’m yours,” Morrissey opened his Vicar Street July 16 gig, with a line from the Joe Dolan 1969 hit.
A fan of the Mullingar singer, Morrissey has been known to play Joe's Good Looking Woman video before gigs.
Meanwhile, The Smith's guitarist, Johnny Marr, previously said Joe Dolan's The Answer to Everything was an influence on their song Please Please Let Me Get What I Want.
And it appears Morrissey is also a fan of another musical duo from Westmeath, singing lines from Foster and Allen's A Bunch of Thyme in Dublin Castle back in 2004.
