Morrissey, 'Satellite of Love' (Live)

Late last year, Morrissey paid tribute to the life and legacy of Lou Reed by releasing a live cover of the late icon’s “Satellite of Love” as a digital single. Now comes the release of that 2011 performance, recorded in Las Vegas, on 7-inch and 12-inch vinyl — and Rhino Records is hooking us up with five copies of each to give away to lucky Slicing Up Eyeballs readers.

Both are due out Jan. 28. The 7-inch picture disc includes, as B-sides, Your Arsenal opener “You’re Gonna Need Someone On Your Side” and a previously unreleased live version of “You Say You Don’t Love Me” recorded in London’s Hyde Park on July 4, 2008. The 12-inch, on 180-gram vinyl, features “You’re Gonna Need Someone On Your Side” plus two more previously unreleased live recordings from the Hyde Park concert: “Vicar in a Tutu” and “All You Need is Me.”

TO ENTER: In the comment section below, please name your favorite cover version of all time — any artist, covering any other artist — and, if you’re inclined, spend a few words explaining just why you think it’s tops. And, if you’ve got a preference, specify whether you’d like to win a 7-inch or 12-inch. Finally, if you’re using the Slicing Up Eyeballs app, please email your entry to with the subject line “Gimme that sweet, sweet Morrissey vinyl.”

RULES: Contest is limited to U.S. residents only (sorry, those are the record label’s rules). We’ll take entries until 5 p.m. EST Thursday, Jan. 23. After that point, we’ll select 10 winners at random and contact them via their provided e-mail addresses. Winners will have one week (7 days) to claim their prize; if unclaimed after a week, a new winner will be drawn. One entry per person.
